Photo Vomit [26]: San Diego According to My iPhone


At the San Diego Central Public Library where the boy satisfies his appetite for dinosaurs.Β FullSizeRender-21

This is one cool library, folks. An architecture wonder, in my opinion.


A shot of some of the books I picked up.


A view that will inspire creativity and productivity.


I adore these headboard art. US Grant is one of my favourite hotels among every other hotels we’ve ever been in.

I’ve taken oodles of pictures, but I don’t want to bombard you with all of them. I thought I’d pick some of my favourites instead.

  • Great pics Joy! The library is beautiful!!

  • Beautiful photos! I think I could fall asleep while resting my head on those gorgeous pillows!! The library is stunning as well πŸ™‚

  • shootingstarsmag

    Lovely photos! I really like those headboards too. How awesome. πŸ™‚


  • Looks like you had a good trip although I am sorry your team lost! Great pictures as usual πŸ™‚

  • Jazmen

    Amazing pics!

  • So pretty! Those headboards really are gorgeous, so different than the usual tree or flower picture I see in every other hotel.

  • karina

    Very slick! Loved the photos πŸ™‚

  • Ksenia

    Gorgeous pictures, Joy! I love
    that you went for black and white. And this library…

  • Those headboards are gorgeous. I’ve never seen arty headboards in a hotel. In all the ones I’ve been to? They’re fairly nauseating material things, in “tan” or “maroon” and it’s… not something I’d take a picture of. This hotel looks fancy-nice.
    DINOSAUR LOVE! My niece would have a strong bond there with your son! She’s obsessed.

  • That is one pretty great looking library, great pictures Joy! I’m jealous πŸ˜›

  • These pictures are gorgeous!

  • Yay for pretty pictures πŸ˜€ Thank you for sharing a bit about your trip sweetie. <3 You are awesome. And yay for him reading about dinosaurs πŸ˜€ I looove dinosaurs, hih. (Has he seen the The Land Before Time movies? There are 13. And I loooove all of them, lol. They are cute. And pretty music. And yeah. They are awesome, lol.)

  • Loving these shots! I really like the one of the books you picked up on the desk. I think I saw it on instagram already? I also really like the looks of that library. I honestly don’t go to libraries enough anymore but that looks like a great place to pick up books but also to sit down and do some schoolwork or blogging.

    I want to go there! Those chairs look sooo comfy to just sit and read in. Beautiful pictures, Joy!

  • My family and I often visit libraries while we’re traveling — it’s so fun to see a community through its library. I think we did visit a library in San Diego, but it was in Mission Beach. And I love your photos!
