Back in Time – Palace of Fine Arts


There is something about the Palace of Fine Arts that makes me feel like I’m back in the times of Caesar.  Standing across from these grand pillars with the beautiful pond in front, I loved how the clouds brushed the sky and how the rocks surrounding the pond drew my eye to the pillars.
