The El Valencia Hotel – La Jolla

This is The Valencia Hotel in La Jolla. Since it is in a town that I have known for most of my life, it has never seemed very special. Boy was I wrong. I have come to realize that this is one destination hotel that many people know about. Mostly people with a generous income. 😉

It is a beautiful Hotel. Inside and out. This is just the street side. It has a wonderful garden courtyard, pool area that seems like it is in a tropical land. 😉

Fred Briscoe at Alexander Salazar Contemporary Exhibit space in La Jolla

I shot this yesterday evening. I am posting it right now because, this evening, February 04, 2012, at the Alexander Salazar Fineart Contemporary Exhibit space in La Jolla, Fred Briscoe will be in attendence.

You can meet him, and ask about his creative process concerning general information, or the particular pieces on display. He works in stone and various metals.

And, he is a very nice man.

(Addendum 20120206) By the way. I had met Fred a couple years ago when I was shooting for the San Diego Fine Arts Society’s creator, April Game. The San Diego Fine Arts Society has metamorphosed into artpulse, and April Game is the Executive Director.

Star

This little flower lives by a surface street on the way towards Tecolote Canyon, a location where I walk my dog quite often.

Someone said that this flower is called a monkey’s paw. I do not know. …. What I do know is the location. … And that location is here. -> On Google Maps.

If you go there, give me a call and I will show you some other arts of Tecolote Canyon. It is a nice walk.

Looking Towards the Convention Center

I love living in San Diego, and I love shooting for Alexander Salazar Fineart galleries. Shooting for Alexander gets me out and about to different locations ad interesting times. I can go a little early, and wander home a little later, and the opportunities for catching a cool moment abound.

For example, I was shooting Alison Van Pelt evening at the Bayfront Hilton. – Please check out those links if you wish. – And that very evening gave me the opportunity to shoot this twilight image of Down Town San Diego.

Some Friends.

I like to go for little trips with friends, and shoot some images. … This is just a jumble of some of those little drives.
