All is peachy in Pacific Beach


I drove down to Mission Beach, taking some pictures of the historical Roller Coaster there and ended up in Pacific Beach towards the evening. I was trying to get some Sunset shots. I’ve been to the place before and I had some good memories. So I figure why not. To capture the sunset at this time of year, I had to go down a stair case and make a right along the cliff.

The beach is not sandy at all,  in fact there is nothing but rocks of various sizes all over the place.  I stumbled around on top of the rocks and slipped several times, hoping nobody was watching me as I tried to get to the spot I had been previously  and got some decent shots. Finally, I  got to my destination and what you’d  know, not a cloud in sight and the sun was just about 5 minutes away from disappearing below the horizon.
I noticed a few bumps and scratches on my leg and some blood on my big toe and figured, well, maybe I should head back to the stair case. On my way back, about half way down, I met a young man sitting on the rocks watching the sunset. We conversed for a little while and he told me that this area used to be a gunnery during World War II. I was wondering about all the concrete and other man-made objects that are scattered all over at that spot. After the war ended, the Government tore the whole thing down, thus so many remnants of the former gunnery.
Well, I made it safely back to the stairs and  set up my camera to get at least a couple of shot for the night. Here is the one of the shots I got, a view towards Pacific Beach and the Crystal Pier. It was a pretty nice evening after all. I met some people at the place I was taking the picture and we had a pleasant conversation.
That is another reason I love to go out and take pictures, the scenery, the fresh air and the people who I meet on my outings. Always fascinating and exiting to talk to people and have some fun. Reminds of a time when things were like that, when people still had the time to say hi and enjoy the beauty of God’s creation.

The Bench


“The Bench”

I was here, but you did not sit down to rest. I was here, but you were too busy with the world. I will be here tomorrow and the next day. Take some time, rest and sit down. Enjoy the view and find peace in your heart. God’s presence is everywhere, just relax and sit down for a moment and find the peace that surpasses all understanding.

This is the Mount Soledad Veterans Memorial site in San Diego. The Cross has been under attack for many years by some local Atheist, but it is still standing and the American Flag is proudly waving in the wind.

Surfing USA

The owner of this surfboard was surely happy that I was at that spot today. He came up to we and ask if I had seen a camera that he lost while surfing. I knew he was talking about a GoPro camera. I said, sorry I have not, but I will keep my eyes open. I took this picture of his surfboard while he was anxiously looking for his camera in the waves. About a minute after this shot, the GoPro came floating down my way. I picked it up, called him and he came running to the shore. He was a tourist from Ireland on his last day here in San Diego. He was a happy man when I handed him his camera. 64GB of vacation footage. I think God had me there today for that reason, normally I walk up a little bit further north. At least he is leaving Solana Beach with happy memories. God is Good.

Out of this World


Out of this WorldYesterday, I had somewhat of a bad day. I lost my Aperture library and all of my Raw files. Not sure how it happened, but so far I have not been able to locate the library. On the bright side, I have most of my edited stuff which I stored on another app. This picture was taken last year and I re-edited it a bit from the edited version. At first, loosing something that one treasures is tough, but this too shall pass and I learned a lesson.
