Weekly Photo Challenge: Symmetry, Or: St. Benedict’s Painted Church

St. Benedict's Painted Church

This week’s photo challenge calls for symmetry. I’ve already posted nearly all of my symmetrical photos, so I was at a loss as to which to use. Then I remember this shot I took of the beautiful interior of St. Benedict’s Painted Church in Captain Cook, Hawaii. Large version available here.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition, Or: There's A Tiger On The Wall!

Imagine that you’re wandering around San Francisco. You’re surrounded by buildings and aren’t sure where you’re going. You happen to glance at *just* the right angle…and there’s a tiger on the side of the building! Talk about your urban jungle.

This six-story tiger and its skeleton was done by an artist named Nychos. If you want to check it out, it sits above a parking lot on Geary, between Jones and Taylor.

One of the many, many works of art you can find while exploring San Francisco’s streets. This mural is on a wall a couple of blocks into Chinatown.
