Santa Barbara has the largest fig tree in the USA, but this isn’t it. The one pictured here is still a massive presence on the cemetery grounds of the Santa Barbara Mission.

Santa Barbara County Courthouse during Christmas blue hour

Last week I posted a photo from the clock tower of the Santa Barbara County Courthouse. Today’s photo is of the courthouse and the clock tower that prior picture came from.

The first night we pulled into Santa Barbara we were all rather stunned driving past this building which looked spectacular at night. During the day it still looked pretty cool, but at night is when it really dazzles. Every night I meant to walk down the street (we were staying near Santa Barbara High School) to get this shot, but it wasn’t until our final night–Christmas evening–that I actually made it happen.

Thomas Sichi surfing UCSB beach with kids

Today’s photo comes from our trip to Santa Barbara last week. This is the beach right next to UCSB, and this dad was taking his kids out surfing. With the challenges of moving waves, and the hopes of the young, I thought it made a good photo for the first day of a new year.
