DeYoung Delight

Over the long Labor Day weekend, I visited DeYoung museum along with my good friend Chris Michel to look at their vast collection of artworks. And eventually I ended up making some photos of the building, whose edges and angles are always inviting from the perspective of a photographer. I sincerely wished I had a … Continue reading DeYoung Delight

Also, I went to the Marin Headlands to get a different, (perhaps) faith-reaffirming perspective on the city of San Francisco. It is good to admire the changes in … Continue reading Some Recent Photography
