The Side Door to Olympus (1 of 2)
San Francisco's Palace of Fine Arts is another one of those places that seems to be inside of its own time bubble. Each step you take towards the entrance sends you back 100 years and by the time you reach the center, you are firmly in another era. The more you look around this colossal house of the old Greek Gods, the more likely it starts to become that you will turn a corner and see Zeus lounging on a throne or Ares studying a map in preparation for major warfare.
I felt like an ant as I walked around trying to capture its essence with my camera. Lucky for me the sun had just come up and the light was hitting it from a low angle that illuminated the inside of the dome with a warm glow. I hope you enjoy the final product as much as I enjoyed being there!
