Halo

My mom usually hates having her picture taken, but it looks like she snuck in here.

Twin Suns

A departure from what I usually see in my high school amphitheater.
No class competitions, no dance team performances, no eating students.

Impossible Is Nothing

For a long time, a bee's wings were considered too proportionately small to lift its body off the ground and its ability to fly was a mystery to man.

Sunbathing

Because everyone needs a healthy dose of sunlight every so often.

Westfield Mall

Downtown San Francisco, looking straight up through the heart of the mall.

Goodmorning

I would normally venture the guess that some juvenile pedestrian had left impressions of his fingernails in this flower, but as it's growing two stories up, I suppose not.

The Dancing Couple

Nicknamed "Fred" and "Ginger," the two dance in New Town Prague.
If all buildings could be this playful, the sight of steel and concrete would be hard to grow sick of.

Legend has it that the citizens of Prague gouged out the clockmaker's eyes so that he would never be able to make another.
