From St. John's Cathedral

A perfect sky framing the cathedral and the bad feng-sui new Bank of China building.

Hello Rachel,
I've been a fan of the Daily City Photo group for several years now and like to check out the new folks on the weekends. I was enjoying your photos when I noticed your name. I had a friend in high school (SGA) with that name. Just wondering . . .

Hey Jules!
It is me. It's been a while since '84 and you went off to Andrews. I love your photography. What have you been doing for the past 23 years?

Ok, I feel very old now. I didn't do the math . . . 23 years? That's a lot of years to cover. Well, six of those years were spent at Andrews, two back in So Cal working as a Sous Chef, then 13-14 years in Michigan working in Land Surveying. Seems I'm missing a year somewhere, oh yes . . . after college I did nothing for a year (trying to "find myself"). Wow, that didn't take as long as I thought it would.

Glad you enjoyed my photo's, it's become a real pleasure and passion for me.
Jules

You're very succinct in your 23 years. Mine have been a little more complicated. If you send me your e-mail? Mine is reanhongkong@gmail.com

I'm curious. Why does the new BOC building have "bad feng shui?" I'm pretty uninformed about feng shui.

Re: feng shui
Rumor has it that a feng shui master designed the building to increase the prosperity of the Bank of China, but because of the diagonal lines, it sent bad fortune at many other near-by buildings.
