In San Francisco, all these neighborhoods are sprung up with new shops, restaurants or condo buildings these days. Areas known as Duboce Triangle and Lower Haight are not exception. In the past few years, the neighborhoods have been cleaned up and occupied with fashionable shops and restaurants. Anyway, I took this photo in a low […]
It was rather difficult to make this shot, as it was dark, there was a slight breeze and the ground was not firm as I had to step on some grass (hope I did not step on plants!). I made several shots and this was the best one. This Pampas Grass is found at Helen […]
It was chilly the night before, and the temperature did not climb up the next day. In the streets, people bundled up a little more. Daytime temperatures below 50F definitely slow people down in San Francisco. Me included.
This water fountain jumped out of the scene when I first saw it in yesterday’s beautiful sunset. I took some shots hoping the sunset only gave me adequate lighting, because street lights were far from where I was. Many came out too dark or blurry. I did not want to use flash, because I just […]
There is a small but powerful outdoor display at the Legion of Honor (not in the museum), titled The Holocaust, done by George Segal. This shot is only a part of the display but it is painful to look at, and it is powerful. You can see the entire display here.
It would have been interesting to photography how rain actually hit these leaves that are waterproofed for water conserving purpose. Rain dancing, jumping up and down on the waxed leaves. Something to look forward next time it rains.
At first sight, I saw this face in a tree root. I don’t know if you see it but it was obvious to me. A man – viking or Amazon native – with his eyes closed, perhaps.
I’ve passed by this shrub so many times without noticing. But this past Saturday, in a low-light rainy Saturday afternoon, the shrub was emitting fiery glow with red, orange, burgundy, auburn, maroon and all other shades of red. Totally deserve the dramatic cultivar name.
I spent some time on the rooftop of my apartment building the other night. The view of downtown was nice but the photos did not come out good: The photos were not very crisp and the focus might have been too long. The view of nearby Noe Valley homes came out better. Exposure might have […]
I was walking in my neighborhood of Noe Valley yesterday and found this little house with a fence and gate. The gate had a small window and I peaked into its garden. I thought the small window would frame the house and the photo might turn out interesting. I only had a micro shot lens […]
