The old Emporium dome, getting a new life in the new and very upscale shopping mall, the San Francisco Centre, on the location of the old Emporium department store on Market St. In its early days, the Emporium became one of SF’s most popular destinations, with nightly concerts at the bandstand and restaurant under a 500,000-pound, 102-foot-wide skylit dome three stories tall. The original Emporium dome, built in the 1890s, was the signature feature of what was called “The Grandest Mercantile Building in the World.” The dome was destroyed in the 1906 earthquake, but was rebuilt by 1908. In 1927, an addition to the Emporium covered up the lunette windows around the lower part of the dome. The dome was blacked out during World War II and neglected in the decades after that. Most recently it was jacked 60 feet into the air while the empty Emporium department store around it was demolished. Now it has been restored, with the original railings from the rotunda installed amid new columns that are replicas of the originals, the intricate arched lunette windows re-created, and the aged ornamental plaster given fresh coats of proprietary shades of Silver Lining, Timidity and Dawn Mist paint.

Love Fishes

Love Fishes

Today is Valentine day 2006. Instead of roses, I select the love fishes to celebrate this day with Flickr member. This fish,in Japan, is called "Koi" which means Love. It's quite difficult to take photo of fast moving fishes with sunlight in shade. Photo is taken at Chok Chai farm house, Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand.
To take this shot, I inclined more than half body over the pond and my friend just held my hand preventing me falling down to the pond. However, I dropped skylight filter into the water, but got it back later.

Which love fish do you like ?

A droplet falls into the water and bounces back up bringing with it a spout of water, if it hits a second droplet falling from above, the collision will cause the two to merge and spray outwards. The liquid stretches as far as the surface tension will allow creating some wonderful and amazing shapes. The next image in the stream shows what happens a millisecond after this when the tension breaks.
