LA JOLLA: Quiet Beauty   2 comments

La Jolla, California is where I am fortunate enough to live.  How many places pack such a mosaic of people, sea animals, activities, and landscapes into such a small space?

Of course, La Jolla is well known for its seafront, but there are also unobtrusive nooks of eccentric charm, like this quiet alley scene below with its beautiful light. Having grown up in the Middle West and Northeast of the U.S., I am still charmed by the juxtaposition of palm trees with telephone lines in alleys.

Many people in La Jolla live in old, modest frame buildings located in less public streets like this one.

  1. The lighting in this photo is about perfect. I know what you mean about palm trees and telephone lines. Tall structures that seem to have little in common until a Santa Ana blows in. BTW, you picked a great title for your blog – comes up as the #1 and #2 search results on Google. I’m jealous!

  2. Thanks for the kind comment, Lisa.
