Last weekened when visiting my Dad and Step Mother in South Orange County, CA, we preplanned to spend our three nights at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts. It's become the cosmopolitan center of the county featuring the Segrestrom Concert Hall, the South Coast Repertory, the mind-numbing Noguchi 'California Scenario'- a landscape and sculpture garden and the Westin Hotel. Beyond that are numerous (large) works by internationally renowned sculptors sprinkled throughout the grounds - and lots of high rises with lots of reflective glass ; ) To round things out, the Orange County Museum of Modern Art will be relocating there in 2021 in what promises to be a stunning example of contemporary architecture. And if your in the mood for a retail adventure, South Coast Plaza, the largest shopping center on the West Coast is right across the street.

Note: To our Southern California friends, some of you may remember when the Segerstrom Center was a bean field. I won't say you're getting old, because I for one do.

I've shot around the place several times but there's nothing like staying at-the-source. It was photographic prime time with plenty of time for quality 'walkabouts'— usually around 7am and 7pm.
