The Hotel Del is, of course, a San Diego institution and tradition. A day at the beach in Coronado with the hotel behind is an absolute joy for me. The tourists at the ‘Del’ are always in the best frame of mind since they are on vacation and away from the pressures of regular life.
The juxtaposition of the forms of nature and sky with the angles of the stately architecture make for an ideal subject. The contrast of the shadows, sky and red roofs with the stark white exterior are iconic with the image of the Del.
