Palace of Fine Arts

I will continue with the night shot motif and show this picture of the Palace of Fine Arts. This was taken on a tripod from the grass area at the corner of Baker and Beach. I like this picture because of the person standing at the fence in outline against the reflection of the light from the structure. The main edifice is quite large and unfortunately not all the lights were working and the detail above the columns, but below the cupola were not evenly lit. While I was taking these shots, there were some young people yelling and running around inside the main structure under the dome. Sounded like drunken college kids, but not being able to see them, I was a little worried they were miscreants so I didn't walk around too much that night.
