Casa del Prado Balboa Park San Diego

These images are from a recent photographic expedition to San Diego CA. The purpose of the trip was to capture early spring in southern Californian in a location that combines laid back sea side culture with the opulence of the elite wealthy culture and the military culture of the area.

These images today are showing a part of the architecture and beauty. These images are from Balboa Park right by San Diego Zoo.

Casa del Prado Balboa Park San Diego
The former Food & Beverage Building (today’s Casa de Balboa, which houses the Balboa Art Conservation Center, Museum of Photographic Arts, Museum of San Diego History & Archives and San Diego Model Railroad Museum), the Casa del Prado (San Diego Botanical Foundation, San Diego Civic Youth Ballet, San Diego Floral Association, San Diego Junior Theater and the San Diego Youth Symphony) and the House of Charm (Mingei International Museum and San Diego Art Institute: Museum of the Living Artist) were also built for the 1915 Exposition as temporary wood-and-plaster structures and have all since been reconstructed.

About waynem

As a Minnesota based photographer and artist I have been greatly influenced by the Upper Midwest. I focus my skills and energies on portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, architectural and fine art work. My best work comes from images first painted in my mind. I mull over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture. The result is images that deeply touch people's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams. My images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary to communicate their shared vision and values. Book and magazine publishers have featured my images on their covers. My photographs also grace and enhance the decor of many fine homes.
