Old Town San Diego is considered the “birthplace” of California. San Diego is the site of the first permanent Spanish settlement in California. It was here in 1769, that Father Junipero Serra came to establish the very first mission in a chain of 21 missions that were to be the cornerstone of California’s colonization. Father Serra’s mission and Presidio were built on a hillside overlooking what is currently known as Old Town San Diego. At the base of the hill in 1820’s, a small Mexican community of adobe buildings was formed and by 1835 had attained the status of El Pueblo de San Diego. In 1846, a U.S. Navy Lieutenant and a Marine Lieutenant, raised the American flag in the Old Town San Diego Plaza.

In 1968, the State of California Department of Parks and Recreation established Old Town State Historic Park to preserve the rich heritage that characterized San Diego during the 1821 to 1872 period. The park includes a main plaza, exhibits, museums and living history demonstrations.

The Coral Tree Tea House is a classic, English-style tea service presented in an elegant 19th-century dwelling on park grounds.

“Photography is about capturing souls not smiles.”
~Dragan Tapshanov

I never take posed portraits as I prefer natural, candid ones. Today I learned never to say "never". Walking down a small, designer district street I saw a man I wanted to photograph. But there would be no opportunity for me to capture a candid photo since it was just him and me with nothing to distract him. So I could lose the opportunity or just simply ask knowing my attempts at posed portraits usually come out stilted and ring false. After a bit of chatter on my part about my newly acquired Helios lens, I asked to take a few photos. I think he must have been a pro sometime in his life because he knew what to do and was very comfortable with the idea. He was an interesting man who grew various types of chili peppers of which he was quite proud and had a few with him. Today I stepped out of my usual mode and it paid off.
Note to Chili: If you were able to find me here on Flickr, drop me a personal message and I'll make you a copy of this one and deliver it to the Belly Up...and thanks again.

The best place to find God

You can dig for him there.
