One America Plaza, in San Diego California, is a prominent fixture in the waterfront district of the downtown San Diego skyline. The 34-story, 500 ft (150 m), 623,000 sq ft (57,900 m2), obelisk-shaped tower was designed by Helmut Jahn of Murphy/Jahn Architects and KMA Architecture. The top of the building bears a striking resemblance to the end of a Phillips head screwdriver.
I always thought it was designed in the shape of a Quartz crystal, which San Diego has a lot of in our mountains.

I was a little disappointed with The Black-Phoebe image from the other day. It was much under-lit because it was sitting in the shade, and it was, well, black. … So I set up a couple flashes to balance against the high sun in the background. And so, here we have Phil, the little Black-Phoebe in the back yard.

I would love to have been able to get much closer to this little Black-Phoebe. I just love the Hitch-hiking ant on his forehead. I just looked at the image on Flickr, and you cannot quite make out that the little object on this Phoebe’s forehead, but it is. … 😉 It is very clear in the high-res image on my computer.
