Field Level

Baseball Park, Blue Jays, HDR, Rogers Center, Skydome, Toronto

Field Level access at the Rogers Center to a Blue Jays game. This was Blue Jays vs the Oakland Athletics which they went on to lose the game; I’m not a baseball expert but apparently the Jays are making some major moves in the off-season.


Scripps Pier

La Jolla, La Jolla Shores, Landscape, San Diego, Scripps Pier, sunset

Yesterday’s post was about Pacific Beach’s Pier and today’s post is just a few miles further north, Scripps Pier in La Jolla. This pier unlike the others in San Diego, is not open to the public but is mostly used for research by UCSD; to be more specific its part of the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics (IGPP).

Stroll on the beach

Beach, HDR, Pacfic Beach, Pacific Beach, Pacific Beach Pier, San Diego, sunburst

An image of people taking a stroll on the sands of Pacific Beach. Pacific Beach’s Pier is quite unique, as you can see the first portion of the pier is made of chalets which is part of a hotel. That is the Crystal Pier Hotel, the link will take you to an image of the entrance.

Setting the path

HDR, La Jolla Cove, La Jollla, San Diego, sunset
The sun has set a very clear path down the ocean on where its going to set from that day and I tried to get it right down the middle of the stairs as if its inviting you chase it down the ocean 🙂 Have a great hump day.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

HDR, Mechanical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering Building, U of T, University of Toronto, vanishing point

My entry for this week’s photo challenge is the entrance of the Mechanical Engineering building at the University of toronto. I just wonder how many generations have walked through these doors with renewed hopes of a brighter future ahead. It seems like it was yesterday that we walked out of these same doors into the real world… there has been 12 classes since us!

Micro Brewery

HDR, Beer, Escondido, Fermentation Tank, Forklift, Micro Brewery, North County San Diego, San Diego, The Lost Abbey

Another picture from The Lost Abbey in Escondido which is a decent sized micro brewery. Apparently San Diego is famous for its micro brewery scene and lately I’ve been touring a lot of them, definitely much better than the big macro breweries! Hope you’re enjoying the weekend.

Casa de Manana

Casa de Manana, Children's Pool, Coast Blvd, La Jolla, La Jolla Cove, La Jollla, San Diego, sunset

An image of Casa de Manana’s retirement community with downtown La Jolla in the backdrop. It originally opened as Hotel Casa de Manana in 1923 and its original owner sold it in 1956, shortly after it was turned into a retirement community. The detailed story is available on their website, its a short read.

Eyes on the mound

Baseball Park, Blue Jays, HDR, Major League Baseball, Rogers Center, sunset, Toronto

This in an image from my recent trip to Toronto, we went to a Blue Jays game against the Oakland Athletics. At one point while everyone was looking at the mound waiting for the pitcher to throw the ball I was thinking what a great photo opportunity this is 🙂

Convocation Hall

Architecture, Convocation Hall, HDR, U of T, University of Toronto

This is the University of Toronto’s Convocation Hall where every year the new graduating class holds their commencement ceremony at, due to the size of the University now the ceremonies are broken down by faculties for the most part and for (more…)


Hoangie’s

Beer, Escondido, Food Truck, HDR, Hoangies Banh Mi on Wheels, Micro Brewery, San Diego, The Lost Abbey

A Picture of Hoangie’s food truck that serves Banh Mi (Vietnamese sandwiches) on the go, they are actually quite highly rated so maybe I should’ve given them a try. I took this picture outside of The Lost Abbey while touring San Diego’s North county microbreweries.

Lifeguard Tower

Clouds, HDR, La Jolla, La Jolla Cove, La Jollla, Lifeguard Tower, San Diego, sunset

The lifeguard tower over children’s pool at La Jolla Cove around sunset. Considering how this the highest point overlooking the ocean and its on top of a rocky area, this is probably the central tower for La Jolla as the ocean is not very accesible from that point specially in case of an emergency!
