While in Vienna walking around the Ringstrasse, you can find the University of Vienna. It was getting near blue hour this day and I asked the security if I could walk inside to take pics. With no problem I entered the court of this building. Students were studying in the center court and as I explored…I found this cool hallway! Enjoy!

From the lovely San Mission Capistrano in Southern California…here is one of the walkways around the stunning grounds at the mission. As I have had a few posts from here before…one perfect location for wedding/portrait shots! I can imagine a session right here! What makes a cool location like this…HDR! Grab the texture in a shot here will give the photo life! HDR’s are not just for landscapes these days…why not add it into portraits as well!
In photos like this..it always can become a battle of color vs B&W. This one is even! Here is the same shot converted with a little hue…which one would you choose?
I was in San Diego last week and had an early AM free. I was staying only a mile from Balboa Park. Never visited. So I arrived around 6:30 AM. It was nice and quiet. Only people jogging or walking their dogs. The grounds are beautiful!! The architecture is wonderful! I wish I had more time there…many places to stop in and see. I have a cool lily pond shot coming soon. This shot is from a hallway near the entrance. It has a great Spanish look to it. San Diego is a great little city. We were there for 2 days and it actually rained 70% of the time! Yes, it can rain in Southern California! Don’t worry if you are visiting San Diego, sun is much more likely! Maybe a little Marine Layer (clouds in the morning til noon).
Info from the web: Balboa Park – the nation’s largest urban cultural park. Home to 15 major museums, renowned performing arts venues, beautiful gardens and the San Diego Zoo, the Park has an ever-changing calendar of museum exhibitions, plays, musicals, concerts, and classes—all in the beautiful and timeless setting of this must-see San Diego attraction.
