San Diego and around
A typical sunset in La Jolla shores.
Sunset in Coronado Island, on the beach in front of the famous Hotel Del Coronado where several celebrities, artists and politicians have stayed. Among them were Marilyn Monroe and L. Frank Baum who wrote much of his book, the Wonderful Wizard of Oz, during his stay.
UCSD, where I worked many years of my life. In the background is the Geisel library, and on the right is the Fallen Star, an art piece consisting of a small house on top of the building. I took this photo during the last few days I was in San Diego.

Now going a little further, east of San Diego.
Various wildflowers in Anza Borrego desert. If the desert has got enough rain during winter time, then a lot of flowers bloom come spring. During my stay in San Diego, many years were too dry for flowers. However, I was lucky to have witnessed "super bloom" during particularly rainy years.
