One idle dreary day many years ago

Every time I come across this photograph on my computer, I am impressed by how simultaneously dull and sharp the sky was that day in San Francisco. When editing this photograph I took now about three and a half years ago, I only flattened the sky slightly and didn't touch up the trees or recolor the rest of the frame at all.

Trees in San Francisco

It remains my favorite photograph that I have taken to date.

Sometimes, the outside is inside

Just a few pages off the bustling infinite corridor, there's another hallway, but unlike the infinite, it has four-story-high glass ceilings, my favorite piece from the Percent for Art Program, and no traffic.

The exterior of building 6C fascinates me. The corridor with the colorful floors connects the outsides of 4, 6, 6C, and 8, and in most places, the hallway would actually just be outside. The ledges of the first floor windows provide convenient benches. The greenhouse-styled ceiling lets in more than enough light for reading, while the pathways above create shaded spots. And when it's too hot or too cold and there aren't clouds in the sky, it's bright, warm, sunny, and just right.
