San Diego Harbor

2008-05-09

Visit the place anytime you’re in San Diego, especially when the sun is shining or is just about to set. You`ll see the beautiful ocean, a bridge, boats/ships/ferries, many different birds, many different trees, fountains, a lot of public art, shops and stands, restaurants, and people. Don’t let the tourists frighten you because there are so many different things you’ll find to take pictures of. The Coronado Bridge is a tourist attraction but what is so great about San Diego’s harbor is that you can find yourself in distinct places if you keep walking in any direction. There’s the quaint Seaport Village where you’ll find interesting novel shops and overpriced cookies. Just a few blocks away is San Diego’s own downtown and the Gaslamp Quarter where you can go clubbing or get piss drunk later in the night, but don’t walk too far into downtown because you might find yourself being bummed for a change. If you keep walking westwards along the port you will pass by a nice array of docked boats and yachts. As you walk on the delightful path between rows of trees, you might come upon a huge navy boat or cruise ship. Beyond the ships are the neat Urban Tree sculptures. There are 30 of them placed all along the bay front, waiting to be photographed. And if you’re too tired to walk back to where you started, there’s always people on taxi-bikes willing to give you ride back if you pay them a decent amount of money. Go lomo.

    5 Hidden Gems in South Korea

    Speak of South Korea and, chances are, the bustling capital city Seoul and the charming island of Jeju would be the first destinations to come to mind—and for very good reasons. But while these top tourist draws are definitely worth the visit, the rest of the country is dotted with many more gems often unheard of to outsiders. Here are a few of them.

    Self to the World: The Photography of Leanne Surfleet

    A self-portrait may take root in confidence, extreme shyness or alternate bouts of each. Leanne Surfleet goes through this kind of fluctuation when the camera is all eyes. The attraction—as far as we’re concerned—is the mix of uncertainty and a kind of quiet poise. And here and there, a flash of skin that is more a mystery than full-on revelation. Even Surfleet’s portraits of other people have the same hushed invite, as if to say questions are encouraged. There we took our cue.

    The World According to Herr Willie: Ilha de Marajó

    Brazil is an awesome country for traveling. There's so much to explore, each place very different from one another. It will definitely take a stretch of trips just to get to know this this South American pearl. I finished my copa tour last year in Marajó, the island of bulls—it just might be an eternal highlight for me.
