Junipero Serra, father of the California Missions
I’m not really just the type who look perusely on structural intricacies. I only got inspired by Debra Kolkka
, WP’s recommended travel blog and a former featured blog of mine. She always go in details to the designs of buildings, esp. the ones with sculptures. So when I visited the MUST-go-to Balboa Park, I started to get intrigued after taking pictures of the busts and statues on the Museum of Man building. It’s perfect enough to have started noticing structural details that I found something interesting with “the way they look”…
Father Luis Jayme, Franciscan missionary
Their eyes are looking in different and every directions.
Fray Antonio de la Ascension, a Carmelite historian
Another awesome thing about it is that it exhibits 9 of California historical figures, to include Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo. My visit to Cabrillo National Monument will be posted in the future. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy/ed this post on The Rocky Intertidal Zone
Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, who sailed into San Diego Bay in 1542
George Vancouver, an English navigator
Imagine me taking their pictures and trying to catch where they’re looking at. I went close to the building, across the street, left and right, zoom in and zoom out. I even laid on the ground. Some of whom have line of sights that are just out of range for my camera viewfinder to come face to face with.
Charles V of Spain
With the high building, the bust of Charles V is looking afar to the left. While Philip III, to the other side of Charles V, is looking straight.
Philip III of Spain
Don Sebastian Viscaino, another Spanish sailor
Gaspar de Portola, the first Spanish governor of Southern California
Statue? What about the Brazil? I’ve been dying to feature this blog …
Here’s to another one of my top travel blogs. With 12 major countries and and 30 or so cities and towns, you just got to, got to check out Madhu’s blog, The Urge To Wander
. Famous landmarks, caves, temples, landscapes, etc. She posts exciting travel stories and informative histories. My favorite a post about her urge to make things happen even if it doesn’t appear to be. Brazil’s most photographed … The Outstretched Hands of the Redeemer.
