A Search for San Diego Courtyards

Doug Keister, photographer of over twenty books, a number of which feature homes in San Diego, is doing a book on Courtyards. The introduction will have an array of images including Bungalow courts, Courthouses, Cloisters, etc.

The main body of the book will feature residential courtyards and courtyard-like gardens. So what is he looking for? Basically, enclosed urban outdoor spaces that offer privacy and intimacy. Most will have some sort of water feature like a fountain, pond or even a birdbath. Most will not have a lawn. ALL will be enclosed on three or four sides. Even if the courtyard has been an addition to the house, it can qualify as long as it meets the criterion. What Doug wants to do is to show people what they can create and incorporate into their existing dwelling.

If you think your courtyard might be a candidate contact him at or call (530) 892-1025, or write to:
