Photo Friday: Sunset over the Silicon Wadi, Herzliya Beach, Israel

Several people have asked me if I photoshopped this. I took it at sunset at the beach at Herzliya, Israel (@CityofHerzliya), which is a central part of the “Silicon Wadi” (Hebrew for “Silicon Valley”), where some/most of the largest tech companies in the world operate.

Photo Friday: Kaiser Permanente Antelope Valley, Lancaster, CA USA

I’m breaking the “photo is usually from Washington, DC” informal rule this week, which I do occasionally when I find something visually compelling elsewhere, in this case the beautiful LEED Gold certified Kaiser Permanente Antelope Valley Medical Office Building.
