Shadows Below Us-Really Below Us!



















Last weekend we were in San Diego for my husband's niece's wedding. Which gave us the chance to be tourists on a sunny Sunday afternoon at Balboa Park. I had read in a magazine that the tower in the Museum of Man was now open to the public after not being accessible for 89 years. You have to buy a museum ticket specifically for the tower and you have to be able to climb 8 flights of stairs. Thank goodness that wasn't a problem for us.

The view from the tower-which I believe they call it the California Tower but I don't think anyone in San Diego would know it by that name-is fantastic. You can see all of the park and the city and the on that day, even the Coronado island way off in the distance. It was so clear. The last image is the Museum of Man from a distance so that you can see where I took the images from-the very top part of the building. If you go to Balboa Park, do go on the Tower Tour if you can. I don't think it's something that will always be offered to the public (I'm sure the city's legal department is not too thrilled with this tour). It is a chance of a lifetime. You can see more of the panoramic vistas posted on my Facebook Timeline.


Join us as a group of us (yes-there are many of us!) from around the world post our shadow shots over at Shadow Shot Sunday 2. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted!

It looks as if you captured such great shadows for the tower, as if you were a couple hundred feet close to heaven (as you were :)

The shapes of the wrought iron railing and intricate shape of the tower are equally artistic!

I like those first two shadow shots with the delicate and intricate patterns. I was in Balboa Park a few years ago, but the tower was not open. It's cross country for me so doubt I will get back there.

Great photographs of shadows from a different perspective. I'll have to check out the tower next time I am in San Diego.

Wow, fun shots from above and below. I'd love to visit that museum and I particularly like San Diego.
