This place brought me back to Europe

28 Mar

I’d always seen pictures of the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco but had never actually been.  While I was out exploring with my friend over the weekend, we ended up right near the Palace of Fine Arts so I snapped some photos.  I’m sure many of you have been here before but if you haven’t it’s such a beautiful place to see.  The tall columns reminded me so much of Europe and the exquisite buildings that still stand.

The extremely large columns.

It’s this large, outdoor standing area.  It’s beautiful.

Gigantic.

I love the reflection on the water.

The inside of the roof of the main dome.

You know how I love curved arches.

There were tons of people cruising around this area and lots of photographers shooting engagement photos and other shoots.  There was also a group of break dancers performing right in the middle of the main dome which was so cool to see.  I was trying to snap some photos of it but by the time we got close enough they decided to leave.  I’d definitely recommend checking it out on a nice day!
