Alcazar Garden

Balboa Park in the heart of San Diego is a perfect place to idle the day away; grand buildings set around wide avenues and plazas that house an assortment of museums and an arboretum. Perhaps the most peaceful corner is the Alcazar Garden, a neatly clipped, geometric space modelled on the gardens within Alcazar Castle in Seville. I hope that these bleached images bring out the beautiful Mudéjar designs that first shaped many of the great cities in southern Spain and later, the Americas.

The Spanish Village is a colourful enclave of miniature art shops; another place in which to meander.
