ARCHES AND SQUARES

For Midweek Blues
For Watery Wednesday
For Sky Watch
For Weekend Reflection




Now wished that I  had taken a pic of the whole front
to get all of the reflection in the window on the bottom.







Twin Towers









Even though These are all magnificent buildings. 
It would become a little boring if there was not the Coronado bridge 
here with the view of sail- and speedboats

In memory of Klaus Peter of Sky Watch

The Whole front!

sorry, I am distracted.


Note
All photos were taken in Balboa Park, San Diego

I know what you mean about distraction. There I am admiring the lovely shapes and the lovely buildings and then suddenly I think - yum - ice cream!

Pat Tillett said...

Very nice! I love Balboa park. I haven't been there in a while. I think it's time to go spend the day.

I thought I sensed some Spanish architecture here. Didn't guess where though, until you told us late in the Post. Texas, especially area around San Antonio, have similar structures. I once toured a Missions trip and had some fabulous pictures.lesub

Carolyn H said...

The architecture is gorgeous! How old are tose buildings??

Stephanie V said...

Funny, when you mentioned ice cream, I was thinking of the the fancy towers that could be sculpted from sugar. Then I saw the cart. Lovely contrasts in those photos.

Great post from a truly beautiful area! And yup the ice cream would do that to me too!

Rudee,
Thank you -these buildings make my pics automatically interesting!

Jane,
The Spanish/Mexican style is very different from where you have landed, eh?

Weaver,
You made me smile - it must be a female thing:)

Patrick,
Good to see you back, Friend! Balboa Park is a great place to just stroll around on a Saturday afternoon...

LG Tina,
This stark blue sky is the trademark of California!

Leovi said...

Nice pictures. Excellent shots. Magnificent series, a beautiful place.

jeannette said...

Nitwit,
San Diego is pretty close to the Mexican border, so yes...

Carolyn,
have no idea, Carolyn -I would have to look it up...judging from the stucco work it looks pretty new (or they must get a regular coat of paint:) )

Stephanie,
Yes, incredible sculpting they did on those buildings!

Sallie,
Thank you, Friend! It's good ice cream too:)

There is something "icecreamy" about this architectural ornements of that palace... No doubt it made you hungry... ;)

Nice reflection too.

Gemma Wiseman said...

Exquisite buildings enhanced by radiant blue skies! Love the painstaking attention to detail highlighted in the macro of the top front!

jeannette said...

Kim,
Thank you! Love your new profile pic:)

Woody,
Balvoa Park is worth it and very fun!
Try to go during the week, then it's not so busy!

Teacher,
Oh, you've been there! By all means, have a great time there:)

Not so much the building, but what stands in front of it;)

I love all the arches and towers--really interesting and beautiful. I just visited San Diego and crossed the Coronado Bridge several times. Quite impressive. Have a nice week. Mickie :)

Last time I went to San Diego I didn't take any pictures. These pictures make me want to go back and take hundreds.
