During this morning’s walk through downtown San Diego, I encountered many examples of nature’s beauty.
Escondido City Hall was built in 1988. Its design remains remarkable today. Walk around the stately but welcoming building, and you’ll be greeted by light, water and beauty.
I enjoyed a look at City Hall’s award-winning architecture during my visit to Escondido last weekend. In the past I’ve been able to venture inside, and I can tell you the functional interior is just as spacious and friendly.
You can learn more about the history of the Escondido Civic Center here.
My photos include the large fountain by Grape Day Park and the fantastic open dome at the building’s entrance.
You can easily explore Cool San Diego Sights by using the search box on my blog’s sidebar. Or click a tag! There are thousands upon thousands of photos for you to enjoy!
Early this morning, light and life were both rising along the San Diego River estuary.
I didn’t walk far along the water–perhaps a quarter mile west from the Interstate 5 bridge.
These aren’t actual oil paintings. They’re photographs that I took last night along the Embarcadero, made to look like impressionistic oil paintings with GIMP graphic software.
Can you recognize many of these beautiful nighttime sights on San Diego Bay?
During my early morning walk through Little Italy, I observed all sorts of positive messages–in windows, on tiles, on banners and signs. Many of these messages concern creativity, one of my favorite topics!
To lovers of beer, one of the following photos contains a VERY positive message!
In the early morning yesterday I took a stroll through Little Italy.
I headed west down Cedar Street, north up India Street to Piazza della Famiglia and Piazza Basilone, then back south down Kettner Boulevard.
The sun was beginning to rise and few people were about. Some of the Little Italy restaurants were receiving their morning deliveries. As you can see in several photographs, a full moon was descending in the western sky.
As I often do, I spent my Sunday afternoon in Balboa Park.
I lingered for a good while in my favorite garden. The Japanese Friendship Garden is beautiful in any season of the year, and now it’s late summer.
My camera was busy.
