Into the woods...

So I flew out Xmas night to go visit my BFF, Mano, for his bday.  We met up in San Diego for a week of photography, movies, and pigging out on amazing food!

I think Tony Northup would be proud of my time of dusk selection for this city shot.. blue sky but golden lights!

We did a lot of wandering around La Jolla near the coast for some people watching and photography opportunities.  It was a super pretty day, and totally clear skies.... you could see forever! Of course I didn't bing my 70-200 when we go to take photos of hanglider... err... paragliders...?... parasai... whatevers... These people sitting under huge kites! LOL


Of course we always find time for street work... some in downtown San Diego, some in OB, some in Balboa Park.. all over! This dog had ALL the ladies fawning over him.  What a cocky spaniel.... that coulda been a good joke, but he had to be annoying and be a golden retriever... no clever jokes with that one.. bah!  "Hey, Dude!  Take my photo!" as the cylist came towards us.. and then asked if we wanted to buy his bike...  and the pigeon people lured tons of birds to them with snacks, and then just reached down and picked one up!

 


I managed to FORCE him to upgrade his phone so he would stop HMMing and HAing over the decision...


 took the best photo of a salad that I may ever take... it was AMAZING! I love the nicoise at Tender Greens!!!


 

We visited his dad's resting spot...

...and enjoyed his amazing view of downtown!


Quick trip to the Cabrillo monument!


Movies that we saw...

Into the woods... loved it!  

Big Eyes... loved it!

The Hobbit... loved it!

I love most movies, tho, so take that with a chunk of pink Himalayan sea salt...
