The glass, steel and aluminum rotunda at City Hall (aka R2D2) in San Jose, California. I love shooting here, and someday I will even get here when the rotunda is open. This was shot from the outside, looking in then back out of the domed top at a beautiful blue, sunny sky.

If you look close, you can even see the City Hall tower reflected in the glass, though a bit distorted.

I’ll shoot anything that catches my eye, but I love it when somebody says “I never looked at it that way before” or even just a little “ooooh”. If I can make you stop and say “hmm”, that’s the best. I normally use minimal processing; a little bump in color and/or contrast, maybe a little cropping. But sometimes I just can’t resist the urge to play with an image.
