There’s so much to see in California, some of it just doesn’t fit into a category. In addition to the next two posts about California, here are some various sites I saw in the state.
I don’t know a ton about Big Sur, but I know its biodiversity is really rare in the world. It is pretty amazing how the forest is so close to the ocean. And whoever designed Highway 1…wow, those people did an impressive job!
I was able to explore the area for about 2 days, and here’s some of the photos that I shot.
Southern California is all beaches and beautiful people right? Not totally. It’s also lots of desert and strange things. Take a look at some of what I found while having a day to kill driving from Los Angeles to San Diego.
I went to California and back, but I was there for a business conference, and didn’t have much time to take photos. So, here’s a whopping one from the flight and one from the ground.
I try hard to have my photos tell a story and go together, but I dug up these photos from 2010 and thought and thought about how to integrate them into old posts, but it just didn’t make sense. So here they are! Enjoy. I guess sometimes the photos can speak for themselves.
As I took off on my drive from San Diego, California, heading east across the country, I knew I had a long way to go before I got out of the desert. I headed to Yuma the first day, and then up towards Sedona, Arizona the next day. These are just a few of the things I saw that intrigued me along the way.
As of this post on March 15, 2013, I have spent more time in Southern California than anywhere else in the past 2 years. While since March, 2011 I have driven across the country twice, been to Scotland, and spent lots of time in New York and the east coast, I have spent approximately 13 or 14 months in Southern California. It never ceases to amaze me in its diversity. I guess that’s why the movie industry is here – so much to see within a few hours…not just beaches (but they have them too)
This may be my last website post before driving back to New York, so here are some photos from around Southern California that are pretty diverse:
I took a drive to the Salton Sea, for my third visit to Bombay Beach, and I finally checked out Salvation Mountain and Slab City, which were two places I hadn’t seen before. The desert is a weird, weird place. But I kind of love it.
See a few more photos of the Salton Sea here.
From Ocean Beach, near where I live, to La Jolla, you can find all sorts of different people, places, and types of shoreline…all without leaving the city of San Diego. Here is a little sampling of that.
I try to expand my horizons and find new places to see often, but Sunset Cliffs Natural Park in the Point Loma section San Diego has almost had a lock on my attention of late. It has incredible rock formations, strange staircases, trees, surfers, abandonment, varied levels of tides, and all sorts of other things that fascinate me. I can park my car at the same corner of Sunset Cliffs Boulevard and have countless photographic choices. All of the photos in this post are taken within a short distance of each other, but by no means on the same day. I hope you enjoy them.
