Harry's Plaza Cafe, a local landmark. Many locals have spent a lot of time in Harry's. This was taken as a gift for someone who's father was a long time patron. Something to remind her of fun days and her fathers favorte place.

Courthouse Clockwork Closeup

This is a close-up of the gears at the top of the clockwork inside the Courthouse Clocktower. I find the gear box on the top as well as the cool looking universal joints on the four sides that allow the shafts to have a slight angle in them. I'm sure glad they were inspired to display the clockworks when they refurbished the clock.

Courthouse Clockwork

Thanks to some dedicated volunteers, the Courthouse clocktower has a new attraction. As if the view from the top wasn't enough. Refurbishing the mechinsim of the clock was something that was overdue. But the dedicated caretakers of this local gem went above and beyond. Rather than just fix the clock and close it back up, they realized the intricate workings of this amazing device was something most visitors would love to see. With the backdrop of an amazing mural the wokrings of the clock are as beautiful and interesting as the exterior architecture that encloses it. I particularly like the gear at the top that distributes the movement of the clock to the four faces on the sides of the tower.

Sanctuary at the Carmel Mission

The Sanctuary at the Carmel Mission. The twenty one California Missions each have their own unique and beautiful details and the Carmel mission is sure no exception. This is the main sanctuary, just inside the front door.

The Palace Grill

This is one of my favorite spots in Santa Barbara, The Palace Grill. The people are friendly the atmosphere is fun and the food is absolutely amazing. The evening I shot this a few years ago I was taking photos of the exterior to send to friends as a memento of a wonderful visit. Just as they were about to open for dinner, the restaurant The owner saw me, after telling him why I was taking the photos he invited me in to get a couple of shots of the interior too.

Sanctuary at the Mission Santa Barbara

Another image from the new lens I was trying out the other day. This is another one that is just a slice of a 360° image. I'll get the whole thing online when time permits, but I really liked the colors I was able to pick up especially in this part of the image. So I thought a tighter crop would be nice too.
