A warm morning glow in San Diego.

Gazing east through trees into Balboa Park. The California Tower is a dark spike inside a golden sunrise.

Early yesterday morning, the weather was so pleasant that I decided to walk to work. It’s about a four and a half mile journey. I started from downtown San Diego up Sixth Avenue along the west edge of Balboa Park, walked from Bankers Hill into Hillcrest, then finally descended Bachman Place into Mission Valley.

These photos capture the golden glow of a cloudless sunrise. Moving through the warm morning light was a modest adventure in a magical world.

Downtown San Diego has been my home for many years. My online activities reflect my love for writing, blogging, walking and photography.

  1. Hi, I came across a picture you took of the Mercy Hospital fountains. This fountain contains many parts that are from my company, Imperial Fountains. Is it okay for me to use your picture on my website to show my future clients what some of my previous fountains were like?
