Art is born of the observation and investigation of nature.” ~Marcus Tullius Cicero

During a normal year, I spend most days of my week in Balboa Park…a1,200-acre historic urban cultural park here in San Diego. The park contains most of our cities museum, including the San Diego Museum of Art where I work. Because I spend so much time there I rarely want to spend any extra time or shoot there. Even though my blog is 99% art-specific,  I find myself missing Balboa Park so much that as soon as I heard the outdoor spaces were open to the public again I had an urge to shoot with nature there. Balboa Park is known for its diverse collection of plants and trees and I often find myself being marveled by the large Moreton Bay Fig trees that are planted through out the park. They are some of the oldest and largest trees there and are known for its impressive display of above ground roots. The giant roots create a landscape that feels a bit alien and I wanted to feel like I was grown from this magical tree. I think Bronson and I fulfilled that fantasy with these amazing shots.
