On A Clear Day

"It's an odd thing, but anyone who disappears is said to be seen in San Francisco. It must be a delightful city, and possess all the attractions of the next world."

-Oscar Wilde

This is the view of San Francisco from Twin Peaks. I have been meaning to get back up there to do some night photography, but my energy has been too low. Soon I hope to post some night shots from up here. By the way...the hills in the background is Berkeley and the East Bay...where I live. :)

On A Clear Day

On a clear day
Rise and look around you
And you'll will see who you are
On a clear day
How it will astound you
That the glow of your being
Outshines every star
You'll feel part of every mountain sea and shore
You can hear
From far and near
A word you've never, never heard before...
And on a clear day...On a clear day...
And ever
And ever And ever more.

Beautiful Pic!!!!

I have never been to California but now that one of my brothers is out there I might have to make the trip.

Between your photos and family being out there I really, really want to see California for myself. :-)

I'm obsessed with skylines. Absolutely loved this shot. Hope you've had a great weekend!
