About Golden Gate:

It was a rather windy evening in Crissy Field that overlooked the Golden Gate strait. The wind was coming from the north and the sunset got buried behind thick clouds. Even though there was very little presence of light, the weather still managed to cast a beautiful color in the sky. The sunset had rendered the mighty Golden Gate bridge into a silhouette that was only recognizable from a distance due to its shape.

It was my first time in San Francisco. In fact, it was my first time in this part of the world! But it felt déjà vu somehow, maybe because I have seen it many times in books, the internet, etc. Having said that, witnessing the bridge in person was a completely different experience!

I wanted to create a photograph that can relate to my first-time-excitement in San Francisco. However, little did I realize the experience was more than that. The adrenaline rush gradually transitioned into a soothing mood. The purple-magenta hue drew and enveloped me into a seemingly serene world while I continued to daydream and drift in a state of calm and happiness.

About Yaopey:

Born in Malaysia, I was bitten by the travel bug at a young age. My interest in exploring off the beaten tracks has led me to places such as Tibet, Iran, and Pakistan. While it’s nice to see new places, I have enjoyed the cultural experience of traveling more. I would bring home a piece of local culture from every place I visit, mainly in the form of wall art. 

Maybe you have been to places I have photographed, or seen them elsewhere. I hope, through my work, I can bring a piece of memory or add an artistic touch to your living space.
