San Diego Nature Photography/ La Jolla Cove
All images captured by medium format Film camera Mamiya 645
It was mid January. My husband and I came to visit sunny, San Diego, to enjoy the city and celebrate our 4 year anniversary.
All four days that we spent in this fantastic city was extremely memorable and amazingly warm. I couldn’t ask for a better long weekend in January.
The first fun filled day began in the world famous San Diego Zoo. I have visited so many zoos around the world, but my main goal was to see San Diego’s Zoo
main attraction, the Panda. After walking around the zoo for over an hour, we finally saw the Panda, but it was asleep! Everyone around was slightly disappointed and all you
could hear was “Awwwwwwwww….”
Our second day brought us to the beautiful and famous Coronado Hotel and La Jolla Cove.
The biggest surprise came when we arrived in La Jolla and saw all the Sea Lions laying everywhere out in the open; on the street, on the stairs, on the beach and on the grass with
no fear of the humans surrounding them. It was nice to see the Sea Lions and humanity co exist so peacefully and naturally.
Our third day brought us to another main San Diego attraction: Sea World! It started off with the small, tiny, cute penguins playing with each other in an open field without any borders.
Next we saw some cute dolphins that seemed to be in a state of continuous happiness. Finally, we ended the day with the main attraction in Sea World, the Killer Whale show. The size, agility, and beauty of the whales is unlike anything I have ever seen. They are spectacular creatures that never cease to amaze! (Included below is a short video clip of the Whale Show!)
Our 4th and final day ended with a special 4 year anniversary photo session. This is another story for a another blog post. Until next time, enjoy!
