"Yosemite Chapel & Half Dome" ~ View of the historic chapel within Yosemite National Park, framed by the glacially formed Half Dome. I feel this image really shows how well architecture can be meshed in with the surrounding landscape, à la Frank Lloyd Wright.
"Union Square Brilliance" ~ A view down vibrant Maiden Lane reveals posh retailers and luxury hotels with a bronze sculpture of the Goddess of Victory reigning over Union Square Park. The 90-foot monument was erected in 1903 to commemorate a Naval victory in the Spanish American War. It was one of the few structures in the area to survive the earthquake of 1906, after which Union Square was rebuilt and transformed into a shopping district.
"The Red Door" ~ The red door of a historic Charleston home, as viewed through a wrought iron entry gate. A sepia version of this photo is included in the "Charleston Ambience, Story No. 2" collage story.
