Balboa Park, San Diego

James had classes today so he was busy. Katie decided to stay home and with Geoff while he worked from home. So Derek and I went to Balboa Park and visited the Natural History Museum. We started on the top floor and saw a photography exhibit. Lots of photos of ocean animals: Whales, dolphins & underwater shots.
Next we spent a very, very long time in the gift shop, looking at every little thing.
He became fascinated with the minerals & gems. We decided on a box with 15 minerals and a separate large Amethyst stone.
We met up with friends and saw the 3d movie about Dinosaurs. It is a good movie. It explores how ideas and timelines change over time as paleontologists discover new fossils.

I like this shot of many people exploring the park while
the trees, buildings & the bell tower stand firmly in place - waiting
to be enjoyed and admired.

I thought this shot with the couple & their dog
would make a good watercolor.

Here I liked the bending tree, the bridge & blue sky.
