Girl looking out at the bay near Alcatraz

My mother and sister were visiting from India and I had taken them around San Francisco. The person in the picture is my sister looking out at the bay and the Alcatraz Island. Her being in a moment of peaceful contemplation was what I felt was beautiful in what may have otherwise been an ordinary composition. A person being there in the frame brings a certain serenity to the picture.
