These images are from a recent photographic expedition to San Diego CA. The purpose of the trip was to capture early spring in southern Californian in a location that combines laid back sea side culture with the opulence of the elite wealthy culture and the military culture of the area. These images today are showing a part of the architecture and beauty. These images are from Balboa Park right by San Diego Zoo.
