Ditching School Is Funducational. Feb. 28th, 2008 @ 12:40 AM Reply

As on a usual Wednesday, school starts later for me(first block starts at 9:00, second block at around 10:15). So today myself and friends go for our usual breakfast get-together of breakfast burritos at a local Mexican restaurant. We still had about an hour and a half before our first class, so we go and hangout over at one of the parks, playing on the jungle gyms and swings like we're still 12, when we realize it's such a beautiful day out and all our classes will be as boring and pointless as usual. So naturally, we ditched school and headed out to Balboa Park and Coronado Island here in good old So Cal, Checking out museums and taking tons of pictures, like these few:

Balboa Park fountain
Koi fish at The Botanical Garden Reflecting Pond

Shakespeare tribute statue outside The Old Globe Theatre
View from the centre of Balboa Park
Cherry blossoms in The Outdoor Gardens

Camera is a Sigma SA-7N SLR with Sigma 70-300mm Prime Macro Lens w/ Hoya UV Filter & Hoya "Super-Quality" Circular Polarizer

I live in the suburbs of polluted vegas, where at 7:50, 10 minutes before my non-block schedule classes, I took a picture of a car flying and landing on 3 kids.

Today was overcast, and I couldn't get any sleep the night before because of a loud roommate, so I was sleeping through classes. I went home after the third one... It doesn't help that Dr. Checkel is a licensed insomnia medication...

I've been to Coronado. Beautiful place and I'm jealous that you can still walk around without a jacket on but this is San Diego we're talking about, so I shouldn't be surprised. Mother nature seems to be directing snow to us any chance she gets =/

Good to see your "field trip" yielded some good pictures.

Yeah, it is a beautiful place, primarily because I don't live on the island, which is generally full of traffic, and all of the homes their are incredibly expensive. Although it did snow here in So Cal in Mid-February which almost never happens, but it shot back up the last week or so.

Oh and I should mention that the Sigma is the camera in the photo. The pictures themselves were taken with a Nikon D40 with 18-55mm Kit Lens and Hoya UV Filter.

And fuck you for having such a nice camera.

I actually have two.

A Sigma SA-7N SLR and a Nikon D40 dSLR.

Oh and this thing that's merely for aesthetic purposes and is only on loan to me for now.

Vintage.
