While hiking the beautiful Lake Chabot, I encountered a patch of tall grass that contrasted the boring yellow shrub surrounding it. I realized that it’d make a great illustration, so I captured this scenic moment.
While wandering the Berkeley Marina pier, I discovered a public domain gallery of graffiti artwork. Ordinary stone blocks transformed into urban canvases complete with color, purpose, and more importantly–design.
My fantasy is to awaken every morning in front of the window facing the deep blue waters of the San Francisco Bay. Imagining the sun greeting me from behind the mountains in the background. Facing the Bay Bridge, I’m well aware of the traffic conditions; in addition, the bridge forms a beautiful shining skyline. By now, I’m considering these yacht residents the luckiest residents in Emeryville, second of course to the apartment renters in the buildings across from the coastal utopia.
The week previous of this artwork, red and blue and green sails dotted the Bay Area coastal landscape. Capturing that sight would’ve been wonderful, but unfortunately it did not happen that day. Still, I’m in Berkeley on a Sunday afternoon. How best to appreciate a cloud-free, deep blue illuminating skyline with the sun perching high above the clouds on a weekend afternoon?
While finishing my San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge trek and walking towards Powell Street BART station, I approached Union Square. Gathering around the giant bright Christmas tree were crowds of onlookers. I sat down on a ledge. Looking down, I noticed a planting of small, bright, pink roses just poking above soil.
I reached into my inner Van Gogh and squeezed my creative sponge. Mesmerized at the possibility of the universe lifting its giant black boot and squashing us. It entertains the human eye with sights of twinkling stars and reddish clouds of nebulae floating across its belly. I hope this artwork inspires you to gaze at the vast night sky and ponder the miracle of human existence.
I uncaged my imagination and provided it with some breathing room. Transformed one of my photographs into an abstract artwork. After all, aren’t abstract images supposed to retain some mystery? Also the origin of the work is Union Square in downtown San Francisco.
This defining San Francisco landmark deservingly serves as one of the world’s seven wonders. The “impossible” bridge now serves thousands of vehicles and pedestrians crossing from San Francisco to the outer suburbs of Marin. The beautiful artwork, created on an unusual serene day, captures the tranquil and laidback spirit of California. Other photographers and artists expressed interest in the Bridge that same day–tripods and sketch pads dotted the landscape as well. Below the landmark, surfers glide on top of high tides rushing into the bay and crashing into the rocky shoreline. Too bad daylight ends short–I would love to hang out longer.
Discovering a remarkable nature scenery is relatively easy–it takes luck to capture a mesmerizing urban landscape. For that reason, I consider this picture to be my landmark feature image. Look at the glimmering office lights, magnified by the reflective water surface, glowing succinctly under the evening sunset.

I spotted this swan while it was swimming alongside a group of ducks. Chased it across the lake a few times until it stood at the shoreline, waiting for me to arrive with the camera and photograph it. It twisted its head around left and right, permitting my lens to capture its dignified stances. When I stopped taking more pictures, it flew away and continued with its business.I wonder if this swan is normally an attention seeker?
