This tower stands next to the San Diego Old Globe Theatre in beautiful Balboa Park.
Although picture-worthy during the day, the tower mesmerizes visitors at night. High-powered spotlights bathe the tower with light making it stand out against the blue-black sky. A great landmark, the tower is visible from almost anywhere in the park.
This shot was taken from the Alcazar Gardens and is a glowing example of the architecture found throughout the park.
This is another image made in Balboa Park near downtown San Diego. Street performers entertain visitors most weekends and this gentleman graciously posed for this portrait near the arboritum. I thought black and white was the right choice here as I wanted a timeless feel to the image. I used an aperature of f/2.8 to blur the background and make my subject appear to float in the frame. If I could change one thing about this shot it would be to make sure that his left hand was included in the frame. Oh well. I'll remember next time. Just another beautiful day in the park.
