I feel like I have climbed a mountain over the last year and arrived in a place of gratitude. I am thankful for so many things. Right now, I am especially thankful for my friend Maria who is the author of the Mt. Tam 365 blog. Each day she takes a picture of Mt. Tam, posts it to her blog and writes something beautiful. She then posts a link on Twitter with the hashtag #MtTam365. Because of her blog, I started taking photos of the TransAmerica Pyramid Building. What started out as a joke to me has turned in to something else.
I work in a building located next to the TransAmerica Pyramid so I get to look at the Pyramid everyday. It wasn’t until I started photographing it, that I started admiring it. I’ve discovered the unique architecture and landscape. Did you know all the bushes around the building are cut in the shape of a pyramid? And did you know there is a peaceful park located behind the building with a beautiful water fountain, trees and a fun statue, open to the public?
As far as I know, the inside of the building is not open for public access beyond the lobby. I hope to someday meet someone who can take me to the top. (hint hint to my Twitter friend @TransAmericabdg)
Here are some of the photos I’ve taken of this unique and beautiful building in the middle of San Francisco, that I like to call #MyMtn on Twitter.
