Virtual Traveler Contest - San Diego, California
I just read Joni Staples' blog about the virtual traveler contest and decided that I could probably write about several cities featured in Active Rain, but the ones I follow the most are William Johnson in San Diego and John McCormack in Albuquerque, NM. I've been to both cities, but William's photos of San Diego always intrigued me and called my name. So when I got the chance to go to San Diego for the Buffini Mastermind Conference last year, I took it, and wow, did I love that city! So many wonderful sights to see, and some great photo opportunities. Unfortunately, last year William was not in town to meet with me. But he was kind enough to give me a list of places to go and take pictures. I got to a few of them, but not all.
This year, when I went, I decided to hire a photographer to take me out on a photo tour, so I was so booked up that I didnt have time to meet with William. Maybe next year!
I took a few good photos while in San Diego last year, one of which was the Star of India ship that is on Harbor Drive. I hired a pedi-taxi (that was fun!), and he took me through part of town and then along the Harbor Drive. I took the photo without a tripod, which is a difficult thing to do at night.
William also said to go to Balboa Park, so I took a bus and did just that. OMG - so many photo ops there; what a beautiful park. All of the photos below are from Balboa park (except the top left and top middle).
Then I went to Coronado and walked for miles taking pictures in the park and ending up at the Coronado Hotel which is a beautiful historic hotel. Below are two photos (top left and top middle) from that excursion.
William takes a ton of photos that I've enjoyed, and I'm sure his photos have made many people want to go to San Diego, but he inspired me to get out and enjoy the beauty of his city. Looking forward to meeting William next time.
