Balboa park

Spent most part of Saturday at one of San Diegos most famous attractions, the Balboa Park. Anyone visiting should absolutely spend at least a day at the park, which also includes the San Diego Zoo requiring a day by itself. The botanical house, pictured below, is most likely one of the most photographed objects in San Diego and well worth a visit. Make sure you don't forget your camera. This was the first time I attended a Meetup.com activity, ut absolutely not the last time. I came home with about 700 images that took me about an hour to edit in Lightroom and a few more hours to make the necessary improvements. Thanks to Adobe Lightroom you can shoot as much as you want without be buried in images after a day with your camera. There are tons of colorful views, historical buildings and interesting people to shot in Balboa park (click for slide show).

very nice shots, mikael - this is one of my favorite places to visit and photograph - - Sometimes, it's actually more fun in inclement weather - less people, interesting light and clouds...

Cheers,

John :-)

Thanks John! We had overcast towards the afternoon which allowed for nicer skin colors. There is no bad weather really.
