Balboa Evening Stroll
On a warm evening the summer air began to cool as evening fell upon San Diego's Balboa Park. This couple will forever be locked in my memory of this lovely architectural sight. The couple's affection for each other was apparent to anyone watching the two lovebirds stroll through the park.

Backpacking through Europe with a couple of my friends was a great experience. We saw many sights in a handful of countries, tasted new cuisine, had snowball fights in city-centers, and much more. On one occasion in Prague, we walked through a medieval city and came across this rather surprising cathedral.
For the size of the walled-city, this cathedral seemed to be out of proportion. That is how planners formerly constructed towns. The most important structures were outsized both for symbolism and practicality. If you have not thought about urban planning or design lately, try looking at the details of your city. Could you tell which edifices are most important to the community by solely examining the exterior architecture?
