I really wanted to do an HDR of this image and I actually started out by doing so but after looking at what was really going on I didn’t think it was fitting or at least I didn’t like it. The place looks deserted and hasn’t been used in quite some time, the sign that says “Balboa Park Activity Center” has gunk on it! I thought the monochrome was more fitting for the scene.
A shed/storage room behind around Balboa Park that caught my attention. I ended up walking right up to the fence and its a Canyon with about a 100-200 ft drop! Not sure what was the purpose of this shed then but ah well, great photography opportunity so I won’t complain. I decided to go with a monochrome version of this image.
This in an image of the Worldbeat Cultural Center in Balboa Park, its a non-profit institution dedicated to African and African-American arts and culture. They offer classes international dance and drumming year around, along with concerts and lectures. There was a group of about 5 to 7 people playing their drums on the other side of the center and that really confused me at the time, I wasn’t sure if it was a drum store or a museum! Anyway its Monday and what better way to start off the week than with a sunburst, enjoy the start of the work week
