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).
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.
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.
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 🙂
Yet another week comes to an end and what better way to end it than another sunset from La Jolla shores 🙂 Hope you are enjoying the weekend.
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!
A part of the UCSD campus around the La Jolla Scripps Pier, this is most probably used by the research staff & graduate students of the university.
Here is a silhouette from the negative tide pools at La Jolla Cove from last Wednesday. Little did we know we had a spectacular sunset in store for us that day, I could’ve sworn I overheard someone mention that you always get amazing sunsets when you have negative tides! Can anyone confirm if this is a fact or myth?
I haven’t done a sunset shot in a long time, at least it feels like it to me. This was this past Saturday’s sunset at La Jolla shores, I took a stroll down to the beach just to enjoy the warm days as they haven’t left Southern California yet. I was wrapping up my shots for the day and I saw this photographer working with a couple and trying to setup the shot for them; I decided to take a picture of them 🙂
I thought I would enter the weekly photo challenge for the first time since I have something that fits the theme, this is the near taking a picture of the far 🙂 I saw this couple trying (more…)
Yet another sunset image from San Diego, this one was taken in Mission bay where the sun was setting right in between the trees. Obviously my placement played in role in that but who’s keeping track 🙂
We’ve been having a few hot & humid days in San Diego, nothing compared to the rest of the country as I was in the Northeast a few weeks ago and its not comparable, its very mild in the Southwest 🙂 I decided to go for a swim after work and I was thinking to myself I can do this all year around, how lucky am I to live in San Diego. Thats when I remembered that I had this image waiting to be published, so here is a slice of our paradise 🙂
An image of the beautiful skyline of this city that I’ve been calling home for almost the last 4 years. By the time this post gets released I should be an hour away from landing in my real hometown, Toronto 🙂 I’m going back for a much needed 2 week vacation to visit family and friends and I just can’t describe how excited I am, this is my longest visit since I left back in 2008. I will try to keep my regular posts even though I missed one yesterday due to packing and some other shenanigans 😉 While I’m gone though, I trust that you’ll stay classy San Diego… see you in 2 weeks.
A picture of the sunset over Redondo Beach’s yacht clubs. The factory in the middle of the image has been a mysterious factory for me. We rode our bikes there and there wasn’t a single sign that indicated what was going on inside, even google maps names every place around it but not it! Satellite view makes it look like a water/oil refinery?? I’m not sure what was going besides (more…)
Technically this is not a tunnel so the title is not applicable but you get where I’m going with this 🙂 I love symmetrical pictures, I tend to see them or look for them everywhere and with the sun being right down the middle, it was too good to resist. This was a small dock in Mission Bay, San Diego… Happy Tuesday 🙂
