Light, Bird Flight, and Fog Light
by Persis Karim
These photos mark my regular walks in the Bay Area I call home. I’m inspired by light, reflections, flowers, bird flight, fog light, and the way water captures images. Perhaps more than anything, I want to capture the wonders that others might pass by or only view and forget. My favorite places are the marina, the bay, and the places where the birds congregate in winter and spring.
