Symmetry, Shadows, Textures and Colors

On a visit to San Francisco Art Institute to see Doug Hall's multimedia piece, "The Terrible Uncertainty of the Things Described," I took advantage of the location to shoot inside and out. I was particularly taken by this courtyard with its contrasting architectural styles. Bounce light in the courtyard, illuminated  shapes, textures and colors. Iconic views beckoned in the background.

Generous outdoor spaces on top of the building offer iconic views. So often San Francisco is shrouded in clouds & fog, but on this glorious day brisk winds cleaned the air and it felt like you could see forever.
