Aqua Sky, Clouds, and Waterfront Reflections

These boats are all aligned so perfectly at the port by the waterfront. The cloudy sky and mid-afternoon light add an extra surreal touch to this image. The overcast skies and the boats also reflect upon the gray-aqua hued waters, giving it a magical, dreamy vibe on a breezy, wintry day.

Streams of Chinese Lanterns Fall from the Sky

Westfield Mall Part II: And the beauty of the dome continues...this time with the Lunar New Year celebration inside Westfield Mall. I love these streams of red Chinese lanterns under the dome and how it adds that extra bright, festive mood to the atmosphere.

Cupid's Span Sculpture Display in the Embarcadero

The famous Cupid's Span arrow art sculpture in the Embarcadero waterfront is a classic among all natives and tourists. This can be captured in so many different angles and ways...but nothing beats having the gorgeous, ever-changing skyscraper skyline behind.

Grace Cathedral's Glorious Interior Architecture Design

The Grace Cathedral church in Nob Hill has the most heavenly interior design and architecture inside made of raw concrete and steel. Marvelous, colorful artwork and creations surround the cathedral offering inspirations everywhere. I captured this picture and gave it a positive spin with tweaks to the color. I adjusted the hue and saturation, and added in hints of purple and blue for a cool feel.

Symmetrical Trees and Reflections By the Waterfront

While walking by the pier along the waterfront, I noticed these simple, symmetrical trees aligned together across the water and had to capture this spectacular photo, especially with the mid-afternoon sun shining below and clouds sweeping across the sky. The extra glow and the reflections don't hurt either!
