This is kaleidoscopic view of a skylight in a vaulted ceiling at the San Francisco Theological Seminary in San Anselmo, CA. I had to rearrange some couches in order to lie on the floor and shoot up at this heavenly domed ceiling.

iPhoneography Monday: Black and White

I took this photo in Scott Hall at the San Francisco Theological Seminary in San Anselmo, CA with my iPhone 5, using the Pro HDR app. I converted it from color to B&W with the Simply HDR app and cropped and framed it with Snapseed.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Change

“This week, we want to see photos that represent change.”

This is a 116w, 130v incandescent light bulb that I changed in a Cable Light fixture on the Golden Gate Bridge 4 days ago (click here for a look at that day). If you look closely you can see the V-shaped broken filament hanging down to the right of the center of the bulb.
