Motor Transport Museum

I recently headed off to a group photographer meet-up at the Motor Transport Museum in Campo, not too far from San Diego. The outing was an adventure back in time. So much fun, can’t wait to go again!

Fireworks

I’m always looking for a new place to shoot July 4th fireworks. This photo was taken from a friend’s balcony in the Bankers Hill neighborhood of San Diego.

U.S. Sand Sculpting Challenge

Members of the “Archisand” team, from Laguana Hills, compete in the Cool California Carvers Class (9 teams of 3 professionals each carving for 2 days), are busy early on Sunday morning carving away on San Diego’s B street Pier. The U.S. Sand Sculpting Challenge organizers brought in some 300 tons of sand to the ‘B’ Street cruise ship terminal pier.

In another class, World Master Sand Sculptors have come from Italy, Ireland, the Netherlands and Canada, and elsewhere to challenge the best in the U.S. Eleven master sculptors carved for 4 days and created beautiful three-dimensional art, some of which weighed in at over 10 tons.

Big Bay Boom! July 4th Fireworks

I am a big fan of fireworks!

Generally, I just like to observe from my neighborhood and not deal with the traffic, but this year I scoped out a cool spot and photographed San Diego’s Big Bay Boom. And it was awesome!

Belmont Park

I was recently out and about at Belmont Park in the Mission Beach area of San Diego where I noticed there have been a lot of changes and upgrades. These photos were the centerpiece for a business story highlighting the new developments at the park, the most notable of which are the debut of the upper level restaurant, Cannonball and a glass elevator that took months and months to complete.

Spring Gardens: Mission Hills

This Mission Hills garden is featured in the SD Horticultural Society/San Diego Floral Society combined garden tour, which is linked to the Balboa Park Centennial. The garden is a mature garden and generally is in full bloom by May. The garden was designed by Sinjen, well-known late landscape designer, who is known for having trees beautifully laced out. The family also converted a former playhouse into a chicken coup, now home to 5 chickens.

Skating by the Sea

Locals and visitors alike enjoy ice skating at Skating by the Sea, which returned to Hotel del Coronado for the 10th year from Thanksgiving day through January 4, 2015. I was fortunate to have a bird’s eye view from the renown turret of the Hotel Del, with the help of Jessica from hotel’s concierge desk. She was an awesome guide. Did I mention that a portion of the skating proceeds will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of San Diego. So let’s do some skatin’!
