With cooler days and holiday decorations, Balboa Park is a great place for San Diego to warm up to the holiday spirit. Up and down the Prado, around the Spreckles Organ Pavilion, and in the gardens the park is getting dressed up for Christmas. Continue reading
Kongo was in Balboa Park a Sunday or two ago and ran into this over the top, way too cool poodle dude dog out for a stroll. This canine had a certain swagger and attitude that let you know that it knew he was THE TOP DOG. It was also a big fan with the other walkers and park visitors. The leash holder couldn’t get more than about 10 feet without being swamped with oohs, ahhhs, petting attacks, and hugs from toddlers. That, of course, was the point.
Travel safe. Have fun.
Kongo was in Seattle yesterday and is now flying back to San Diego to eventually rendezvous with some grand girls on Thanksgiving in Los Angeles The sunrise behind Mt. Rainier today was absolutely was worth the price of the entire trip. Visibility on the ground was nil…maybe 1000 feet. Instrument take off shortly before 7 AM. When the plane popped through the low cloud layer it was like, WOW, OMG, LOOK AT THAT! OOHH, AHHH! The entire plane tilted to the port side as everyone leaned over to get pictures of this spectacular sunrise. This moment was another validation to Kongo’s rule of always keeping a camera handy! Keep reading for more sunrise pictures coming out of SEA-TAK. Continue reading
Now the monkey is not normally a dog photographer. Sure, they’re cute and Kongo really likes dogs it’s just they don’t often pose well or they lick the camera lens or their eyes come out weird in a flash. But this week’s photo challenge was UNEXPECTED and these dogs riding on a Harley and driving a car certainly fit the unexpected category. These were taken at the Plaza in Santa Fe in July where actually a lot of unexpected things happen. See more unexpected photos at the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge.
This week’s Photo Challenge is Layers and Kongo’s entry is this image of a Western saddle with all the leather flaps, blankets, hitching, straps, and other layered objects. See more layers at the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge.
This week, Ailsa’s Travel Theme is delicate. These gracefully decaying trumpet tree blooms in Balboa Park, San Diego seem to fit that description. See more delicate images at Ailsa’s Where’s My Backpack.
This turkey vulture at the San Diego Wild Animal Park casts an eerie profile as it eyes a comrade taking off. View more eerie photos at the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge.
