I hadn't heard of the Diego Rivera mural room focused on industry at the Detroit Institute of Arts; when I turned a corner and entered it I was awestruck. I only had an hour to spend in the museum, and ended up spending most of it in this room. The docent pointed out a lot of details I'd have missed on my own--like the itty bitty completed car, the ear-shaped equipment about the Henry Ford-like character representing management hearing all, etc.

Walking near the top of the world. (If the day was more clear, I think Denali would be visible on the bottom.)

On the Mary Avenue bike/pedestrian bridge over I-280 connecting Cupertino and Sunnyvale. It's one of the fancier bike/ped bridges in the area.

In the debates for the upcoming Adobe Creek bike/ped bridge over 101 in Palo Alto there were discussions of whether it should be a landmark bridge like this one is. The "landmark" proposal did look nice, but the city decided to go for a more basic bridge.

I love biking near San Francisco Bay, in part because of the amazing views. From this point near where Stevens Creek empties into the bay, you can see the two mountain ranges that form Santa Clara Valley (or Silicon Valley).

In this picture, the Santa Cruz Mountains are at the top. You can also see Hangar One at Moffett Field if you look closely.

The Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich.  You can see a tiny Royal Observatory at the top of the hill towards the bottom of this picture.

Sky Garden in the Walkie Talkie in London.  This is a "public park" on the top floors of the building.  You have to reserve free tickets online a day in advance.

Tower Bridge in London, with a ghost bus. :)  I was standing around waiting for the bridge to lift...

You can also see tiny versions of the Shard, Gherkin, Cheese Grater, Walkie Talkie and City Hall in this one.

Rothko Seagram Murals at Tate Modern.

I've been guilty of seeing some Rothko's and thinking "and...?", but this darkened room at Tate Modern leaves an impression.
