California Tower, Balboa Park






Over the years, I've taken many photos of the California Tower, in Balboa Park, without knowing it's title.  After I shot the top two photos, and lowered my camera someone behind me asked if I'd gotten the shots I wanted.  When I turned around, it was two security guards in a golf cart-type vehicle; they said that the California Tower was the most photographed item in the park.

Orchids!







While I was in Balboa Park, I visited the Botanical Garden.  They were having an orchid expositon.  I sure enjoyed it.  There was so much variety; it was lovely.  I'm linking up to Today's Flowers.

Weekend Reflections






My life has been more hectic than usual,  I had some free time in San Diego this week, and decided to stroll Balboa Park.  The water lilies at the Botanical Gardens were so beautiful.  It was a very relaxing visit, just what I needed.  I'm sharing @ Weekend Reflections, hosted by my friend James.

Macro Mushroom


 I went over to the tennis courts to take photos of a quilt top, and noticed a lot of mushrooms.  I set the camera to macro and came up with this.  It looks as if it's splitting it's outer cover.  I'm linking to Macro Monday.  Below is the Super Moon, this morning.


Taken from my driveway.

August Super Moon







None of these are great, but I thought I'd share them anyway.

Thunderheads


 This was taken yesterday while I waited for the signal to change.  Today these clouds produced a bit of thunder and rain.  We really needed the rain.

Little chicks


Many baby flamingos at the San Diego Zoo this week.  I always find it fascinating how their knees bend the opposite of mine.
