The Old Well – Julian


The Old Well - Julian, CA

Housed in the 100-year-old Julian livery; The Old Well is a fifty-foot deep hand dug vertical cavern. The wells function in the old-world brings an appreciation of life and heritage into the modern day. Now, The Old Well has been adapted into a unique and constructive space of modern popular music and art. For more information about The Old Well Project, check their website at The Old Well

Beauty out of darkness throws light into that darkness – Charlotte Mitchell


I spotted this colorful art gallery building on my way back from Julian, CA. It was almost getting dark and cloudy which made the building colors more saturated. Unfortunately it was closed but I sensed there must be a story behind it, after I processed the photo I did some research and found the related website Mitchell Studio Gallery.

The building is older than 100 years owned by Charlotte Mitchell who dedicated her life to art and her love for poetry which inspired her art creation of glass artworks. Sadly she passed away in 2013 (based on the website) and it seems since last year the website is not being updated but this place with its living colors stands as a peace witness for her colorful peaceful spirit and contribution to art.

I hope my photo for the building brought the colorful life of Charlotte Mitchell.
