A walk in Santana Row

A few months back I purchased a new camera. The day it arrived, I took it for a test drive to Santana Row. For those who don't know Santana Row, it is an upscale shopping, dining and entertainment complex in San Jose, California. A very beautiful open European style shopping center, it was intended to be the "Rodeo drive" of Northern California.

That particular day, I noticed the vast collection of beautiful planters and urns used throughout the space. Big and small, hanging and free-standing, wood, clay and ceramic... a beautiful mix of various sizes and styles. Here are some pictures from that day.

  4. @vineetasdiary - I don't think it is mosiac. Most likely its a hand painted glazed ceramic.

  7. I can't disagree with you.. Every weekend if my husband asks me where do I want to go..my first answer will be Santana Row.. Love the streets and the way the restaurants are located in between the roads. Hope you had fun..
