My best

On the first of every month the Daily Photo group has a theme day and this month's theme is to show our best photograph from 2006. This was a hard choice, not because I have so many great photos but because of how to decide. Should it be what I think is the best photo depicting San Diego? My favorite? Something artistic? Or a lucky moment? I chose the above photo (originally posted August 15) of the Salk Institute because I think it covers a lot of those elements. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think! Thank you all for visiting this blog and keeping me going! Happy New Year!

Oh God i truly love this photo - it's difficult to express enough as to why. I adore water and also clean, minimalist lines so for me this is perfection. Also it's so refreshing. I want to dangle my toes in the water. LOve IT!

Felicia,

It is beautiful, the water flowing and the endless stream of water... the sky has such a nice blue to it too.

May your joy flow like the water in this photo for 2007.

Wishing you a very Blessed New Year. Happy 2007 from Singapore!

I recognized this from the documentary I saw on Kahn a few years ago. Splendid.

Chilling!

So much cold concrete and that flat blue sky -- almost sends a shiver down my spine -- the mood is softened by the distant figure.

All the best for 2007

Good choice and I liked how you show links to your alternative choices. I went through the same selection process. It was not easy while at the same time it was fun.

Really great photo. At first I thought I was looking up the side of a building, before I saw the water.

I look forward to seeing more photos this year!

YES!!! So glad to see you choose this one. Not only one of your best shots, but very memorable of all shots of CDP bloggers everywhere. You know, when I'm hungry, I only need to search your archives for a great meal to gaze at, too. Your work is wonderful. Hope your 2007 is filled with happiness and great shots.

Oh, I love Louis Kahn's work! Salk institute is one of best architectures of all his works. I will visit there if I go to CA.
