Saturday Photo Hunt --- View





VIEW



The first thing that sprang to mind for this week was the book, A Room with a View. So here is the view from my hotel room in San Diego earlier this year, looking at a corner of the harbour with the Star of India, part of the Maritime Museum, at the bottom of our street.

Daytime

Sunset, different but just as beautiful

Every time you come to my blog you have a great view of Vancouver in my header. So maybe you were expecting that. Well I would not want to disappoint you so a view towards the North Shore mountains.



HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE

great photos of San Diego -- I live in Kitsilano so am very familiar with your 3rd view!

James Higham said...

I used to drive down to San Diego each year and it was a lovely place, especially down by the harbour. These pics bring it all back.

H e n r i c k said...

I like both your harbour view and mountain view. Nice shots for this week's theme and have a great week ahead. :D

Lovely view from your room. I love how dramatic it looks at night.

Sean Jeating said...

'Ruthless' as I know that I am allowed to be here :) I say: The second and the third are much more impressive than the first one.

Hope the ex-grass widow and the old scientist are enjoying a splendid weekend.
