Weekly Photo Challenge: Intricate, Or: Wine Glass Reflections

Wine Glass Reflections

This week’s challenge calls for something intricate, and I immediately thought of this wall at the Exploratorium.This is part of the “Simply Smashing” exhibit by Rebecca Cummins: A 20-foot wall of about 900 glasses, all filled with water to create optical effects with the reflections. Large version available here. Another angle can be seen here.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Window, Or: The Alcazaba Arch

There are several arches in The Alcazaba. This one near the top of the citadel doubles as a spectacular window.

If you go exploring on foot in San Francisco, it won’t take long to find some awesome artwork. However, not all of it is in plain sight; this intricate design is hidden on the underside of a balcony somewhere on Russian Hill. The only way you’ll see it is if you’re walking under it and just happen to look up. It pays to keep your eyes open.
