San Diego Weekend: Blondes Reading Faulkner, Birds, and Ice Cream

There must have been a lot of birders out this weekend because my San Diego tour through Flickr yielded plenty of feathered creatures.  I included one of them here.  Also, in the interest of full disclosure, the image titled "!" by elladog was taken by Aaryn Belfer, a friend of mine and a regular contributer to Culture Lust .  Look for her review of the book The Believers by Zoë Heller later this week.  I included the picture of her daughter Ruby because it meets my criteria and it's off-the-charts cute.  Some have asked how I find the photos I choose for San Diego Weekend.  At the end of the weekend, I conduct an "advanced search" on Flickr, searching tags, titles and text for "San Diego."  I select my favorites from the 3,500 (on average, depending on when I do the search on Sunday) photos that result.  At least 25% of those photos are composed of zoo, Wild Animal Park, and pandacam pics (I quickly scroll through these).  So keep tagging your photos with San Diego and they'll be included in my search process.  Happy Monday!
