Secret Garden is a photo of a pathway in Balboa Park leading into a colorful sunset. The pathway is framed by an arch.

Secret Garden | Balboa Park, San Diego

An opening and a pathway. What lies at the end? Is this end of an adventure? or the start of a new one? Do I walk forward? or do I just watch from here? All these thoughts run through my mind as I wait for the sunset.

This is the administrative courtyard in Balboa Park. Not many people know about this area and it's relatively quiet compared to the rest of the park. I come here often, sometimes to photograph but also for a little quiet time and a chance to think about the thoughts in my head.

About the Prints

Edition of 50. Available in the following sizes:

24 x 36 inches

30 x 45 inches

Medium: Archival pigment print with acrylic facemount


This is a pigment print where the front has been directly mounted with an adhesive to a sheet of ultra clear, scratch resistant, and non-reflective acrylic glass. This process is known as face mounting. The acrylic captures light internally resulting in a display with incredible visual depth and vibrancy. With proper lighting, the acrylic print will appear to be back illuminated with the light emanating from the image itself. The print comes ready to hang with a hidden mount on the back that floats the print off the wall.

Please allow 4-5 weeks for production and delivery of your print. The prices include U.S. shipping, please contact me for international rates.
