One America Plaza July 05, 2019 at 02:20PM

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),[5] 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.

A Black-Phoebe July 04, 2019 at 12:14PM

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.

The Hitch-hiking Ant July 02, 2019 at 12:30PM

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.

Angry Bird June 30, 2019 at 03:25PM

Not really angry, just looks anfgry. I think this is a Viero? … Tiny quick bird hopping among the leaves and twigs. These little birds rarely sit still. Kinda hard to chase down in the scrub of Tecolote Canyon.

Clairmont San Diego is growing. June 30, 2019 at 03:23PM

Weare starting to see houses like this on the edge of Tecolote Canyon. This area is still the location of housing tract homes from the 1950’s. But, they are being bought, and put under extreme renovation, and these kinds of homes are the results.
