SAN DIEGO, Calif. – Balboa Park, with its eucalyptus trees overlooking downtown San Diego, is a magical place near the heart of one of my favorite cities. The timeless architecture of the museums is as interesting as the history within their walls.

This photo, taken during a recent visit, is of the West Arcade between the California Building and the Plaza de Panama. Converting the photo to black and white adds a hint of mystery to the attractive design.

More information and photos about San Diego and Balboa Park are available here.
