Memorial Church

Many a time I wanted to go in and cry out "SANCTUARY! SANCTUARY!"
Luckily I had enough self control to never go through with this

Kingscote Garden

There are always lotus flowers at Kingscote.
The only thing missing were the friendly carps, ducks, and blue herons. 


Lake Lag is responsible for sparking my love for nature

Lake Lag

Lake Lagunita, Staford University
When I was a freshman living in Roble, this was (mostly) dry.
Now they've allowed water and canoes and mosquitoes fly about.
It was so great to reminisce on the year anniversary of having graduated
I'm mostly going to miss this place because I grew as a person here, made it on my own here.
It holds a special place in my heart.

The next few pictures are going to be of this gorgeous campus. This will be my excuse to visit the university and to simply take it in. I hope you keep in mind my deep, deep love for this place as you browse through the pictures that are to come.

Mason Jars

Calafia, Palo Alto

Domaine Chandon

Domaine Chandon, Yountville, CA
Do you see that cute bird on the last rooftop?
Documentation of one of the best weekends of my life. 

San Francisco Full Moon

Downtown SF. 
I took this picture a couple of years back during Chinese New Year celebrations.
The picture might be grainy, but the moon is so impressive and the
buildings are simply glistening.

Rinconada Park

Urban photography really calls my attention, but Palo Alto isn't exactly the right place to practice that genre of photography. Maybe once in NYC I can practice- I have to get my hands on some old urban photography pro's, though. 

Japanese Maples

I like how the branches on these came out blue-ish.
There is nothing like taking shelter under these on a hot afternoon.

Good Skies

Caltrain Station, Redwood City, CA
I missed my train. It was windy and dry, but the sky gave me a break. 

Cafe Solo

Did I mention I like coffee? 

Port De Barcelona

Barcelona's Port, Spain


First Asparagus of the Year

My favorite food blog, veganyumyum.com, has not been updated for years, but I find myself still browsing the pages for the photographs. So clean, crisp and bright.

I don't have the patience to take photos of my cooking because staging is not my forte. However, when I was cooking up some asparagus, I found their formation irresistibly photogenic.

I absolutely love the art of food. Gastronomical tours of the world are a pipe dream of mine (like the song says "It may be years until the day/my dreams will match up with my pay"). So for now, I stay put and enjoy the occasional beautiful food formation.
