Discovering My City: Otay Lakes
I feel conflicted about graffiti. I hate the act, but can appreciate the art. I found the graffiti on this wall visually engaging, perhaps due to its juxtaposition with nature and the clean lines of the concrete wall.
I adored Otay Lakes. The area provided a wealth of visual sensations. I can’t wait to bring my easel here.
I loved this tree and its background.
It reminded me of a Schiele painting...
Egon Schiele, Four Trees (Galerie Belvedere).
We visited the Olympic Training Center and wandered around its extensive and empty grounds. We watched Olympic rowers in the distance from our high vantage point.
To get a better view, we descended to the lake’s shoreline. While there, we were approached by a slow moving cavalcade of zombie ducks.
