Belmont Park Photo Tour

I’m a sucker when it comes to carnivals, fairs, and theme parks. I’m not very interested in riding rides and playing games but I go there for the people. Well, the people and the pretty lights. I figured what better way than to post a Belmont Park Photo Tour and show you a few of the interesting people/things I was able to see while in San Diego.

All the photos here were taken with my Nikon D7000 using a Sigma 24mm prime lens.

This first image is of a little taco joint call Roberto’s. It sits on the corner of Mission Bay Dr and Mission Blvd in San Diego, CA. I really love this photo. The color is mesmerizing.

These girls made me laugh. I have no idea as to why they were dressed up like sailors but either way it made for a fun photo. The few nights I spent down there I was met with tons of unique people.

Sandbar Belmont - San Diego

The Sandbar. This place was a bit rough around the edges but overall it seemed to be a fairly typical bar. The name of this place reminds of me that song Bitchin’ Camero by The Dead Milkmen.

The previous photos were all taken just outside Belmont Park. This was taken just as you enter. The blue lights hang above caught my eye in a major way. I said earlier that I love color and this is a great example. I actually stood there for a few minutes looking up and just smiling and letting my mind wander.

I’m not sure how much this guy had to drop playing the basketball game but you can bet he was proud to have his rasta banana! See what I mean about people? I love them! Characters everywhere you go.

This guy is actually a co-worker. He also saw the guy with the giant banana and thought that he could do the same. After trying a few times, he gave up and walked away empty handed.

Belmon Park Giant Dipper - San Diego California

I’ve saved the best for last. Well, almost last. The old school wooden roller coaster was built in 1925! At the time of writing this that around 87 years old! That’s pretty freaking amazing if you ask me. The Giant Dipper was an absolute BLAST to ride. It cost me $6 and was worth every penny. I rode at night which only made the experience better. If you get a chance, ride this beast!

For my final photo, I leave you with this awesome looking hostel. It’s not too interesting but it reminds me of something I’d find while traveling around SE Asia. And that makes me happy.

Finally, I leave you with a plea. I’ve launched a new email list. I plan to send out various coupon codes, exclusive high res images that are awesome for backgrounds, and early access to some videos I plan on producing. Below is the sign up form.  You might also want to consider becoming a fan of our Facebook page to stay up to day and see some other random images.
