Ways to Stand Out

Happy July 4th to America!

As I was walking around the City (the Bay Area residents refer to San Francisco as “the City”) in the past few days, I notice how non-uniform the buildings in the City is. They are a collection of eclectic shapes, colours, styles, and ages. Nonetheless, a few have always caught my eyes.
