Palace of Fine Arts

Palace of Fine Arts - Alpa STC, IQ 180, 60XL, ~f/11, 1/125s, ISO 35
Despite living only about an hour away from San Francisco, it doesn't tend to be a common destination for me.  I know friends who live in "the city" (a rather curious name for SF for us south bay folks considering that San Jose is actually larger in terms of population) and others who frequent the city but the appeal just hasn't been there for me.  But this weekend, after a couple of months of being restricted to mostly home, work and a couple of places around the south bay we ventured up to San Francisco.  It was a perfectly clear, beautiful day and we decided to check out the Palace of Fine Arts.  This was my first time (yes 8 years living in the bay area, I hadn't made it there) and we just walked around.  Not wanting to miss an opportunity to photograph anything other than the backyard I brought the full technical camera too.
