So I took over Balboa Park....

For the very first week, I was given the keys to Balboa Park's instagram account.  They gave me full creative control of what appears on their feed....so I decided to go with portraits of performance artists.  I had an incredible amount of fun working with their collective of organizations that make up Balboa Park.  It culminated in an "Instagram Live" Dance Cypher.  It was such a joy working with them.  Instead of getting into the nitty-gritty of that, here is a recap of the photos that were posted during January 1 - January 7.

So. Much. Salt.

Zues had carved out a basin 282 feet below sea level, and filled it with salt.  What was his purpose for doing this?  Death Valley's Badwater Basin certainly lived up to its name....the little water that can be found there is not for drinking, unless you are a fan of instant kidney stones.
