Framed - Los Osos Valley

Mario Ruiz

There are only a few things that will get me up early in the morning two of which are golf and good light. This morning it was good light. I started driving west on Los Osos Valley Rd and found myself on O'Conner Rd. Drove out to what looked like an old military base behind Cuesta College. I'm not familiar with the history here in San Luis Obispo, but dilapidated old buildings always make for fun lines and texture.
