I do use a variety of both photographs and graphic designs in my posts. Most of them, (like the one) above are from the archives of a morgue file from a professional firm that specializes in photographs, graphic designs and illustrations. www.dreamstime.com
However I do sometimes take my own photographs and when I was a student at Penn State University it was a hobby, so I had a darkroom and the whole thing. Seriously into photography at that time. After that life intruded and I went in different directions with my art form.
But today I would like to share a few photos I took just a few months ago while visiting the Exploratorium museum in San Francisco! This is the type of architectural beauty that one can’t resist. So without further ado. A few of my favorite shots.
I was fascinated by the shadows with this one!
More shadows but I also really enjoyed the setting!
I really love the goddesses in this one, aren’t they noble looking?
And of course these incredible columns behind the Goddess, just amazing!
The entrance and my favorite!
Hope you enjoyed,

Thanks RoSy! It’s one of my favorites too! I actually took just a ton of photos there that day. The weather was beautiful and obviously the scenery was too! 🙂 xx
Love the photos, Really there should be more quality crafts(wo/)manship like this these days. You have a good eye and what a perfect sky you had as well.
Totally agree! The day was a perfect day for this!
Awesome photos… I love sunshine and shadows too… it’s the contrast I particularly like 🙂
Thanks, me also! 🙂
Thank you Padmini, greatly appreciate your compliment and you!

Penny you never cease to amaze me! I had no idea you were a photographer too! Fantastic shots… love the compositions and shadows. I’ve been to that museum before and had a ball! 😉
Thank you Roxi so much. Art is art, in whatever form it manifests itself, I believe! (I think you do too actually) It is a most amazing place isn’t it? 🙂
Beautiful photos Penny. The architecture is just stunning! 🙂
It is isn’t it. I was (quite frankly) overwhelmed to find these in USA, Not casting aspersions here, but just so different from our own modern architecture. 🙂
Absolutely! Looks like you had a good visit to SF.
It was fantastic, very hectic and busy a few weeks before Christmas, luckily one of the hotels that my son is associated with (his career) put me up and paved the way for a great time!
Beautiful pics Penny
Hi Gys, thank you so much, I hope you are doing well? with affection, Penny xx

Lovely photos Penny! Love the shadows and the subjects!
These are wonderful! I love the beauty found in architecture!
I also, Kenley, The artists eye and all that. It’s in everything we do isn’t it? The beauty of creation.(at least in my estimation)! 🙂
Oh I did enjoy those photos… fascinating looking place.. very well depicted by your photos…
Thank you, yes it is an amazing place, I wandered around feeling like I was in ancient Greece, it was delightful. 🙂
Beautiful photographs Penny 🙂
