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 […]
I have to admit that I am running out of photos to share! This photo was taken back in November last year and always liked it. Dolores is a rather pretty, palm tree lined street in San Francisco. Both Dolores Park and Mission Dolores are on this street. I like the name Liberty as a […]
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 […]
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 […]
Golden Gate Bridge has been in this color called International Orange for over 75 years. It is said to blend in well with the bridge’s surroundings. Not sure if it blends well but it sure stands out well. This photo was taken at Legion of Honor Fine Arts Museum on the New Year’s Day.
On New Year’s Day, I went to San Francisco’s Lands End for a stroll and photography. Lands End is one of my favorite places in the city because of dramatic natural setting and view of Golden Gate Bridge. Perfect place to be with a telephoto. It was a beautiful day and waves were huge, but […]
Earlier, I posted a photo of ginkgo leaf that was on a garden chair. I moved to take a photo, because the leaf was so perfectly positioned on the chair and the color of the leaf was bright and beautiful. Yesterday, I saw another ginkgo leaf similarly bright and beautiful, and that was the last […]
