Today, let a familiar shape inspire you.

This picture was taken at San Francisco Shopping Center underneath this massive glass dome inside the building.

This building, formally known as Emporium Capwell, was renamed San Francisco Shopping Center around 2006 after years of renovation.  This iconic San Francisco fixture has a rich history and especially with this massive glass dome originally built under the  Emporium reign.  This dome was originally constructed after San Francisco earth quake and projected proudly through  years of change.

Generations of families have shopped at this site years after years.  I remember this was the must-visit attraction when I first moved to San Francisco many years ago.  This building is massive, grand and packed with rich memories.  So it is inspiring to me that San Francisco is able to preserve a part of history in the midst of rapid changes within the city and continued to show this dome’s beauty to the next generation.
