Gaslamp Quarter - San Diego DSLR September Group Shoot

The San Diego DSLR Photo Group got together for its monthly group shoot this morning, this time in the Gaslamp Quarter of downtown San Diego. It was foggy until about 11:00AM, so I tried to concentrate on details and other ways of keeping the bright but grey sky out of the shots. Here's an old railing in front of the Horton Grand Hotel.

Whenever you get a group of photographers together they invariably wind up taking pictures of each other taking pictures of  . . . 

The Gaslamp has lots of old and interesting buildings. There are little plaques on many of them telling the history.

No shortage of new architecture either.

A few of us toured the William Heath Davis House, which is the site of the Gaslamp Quarter Historical Society's museum. The house, built in 1850, is the oldest wooden structure in downtown San Diego.

There are many in San Diego who believe that these old buildings are haunted. I'm not so sure, but I think I may have caught some sort of ghost or apparition here in this next shot. It sure does look like there is something, or somebody, there.

Here's an interesting bit of public art, painted on the side of the Horton Plaza parking garage.
