All In One City

I hope you aren't getting tired of these photo tours of San Francisco. I saw so much that I wanted to share with you. Beauty and art were everywhere, but really no particular "San Francisco look". Instead, there are a thousand styles, and room for it all. See what I mean?

two views down a Mission District alley


at the Legion of Honor museum ~ in an alley in the Mission District


I stopped in the crosswalk to take this picture. A driver
yelled out of the window at me, "What are you doing lady?" I yelled back,
"I'm taking a picture. What do you think?"
Bloggers. You can tell them anywhere.





sky views around the city


Cole Valley Victorian ~ Mission District apartment


So, which one is more your style?



All pictures taken by me in San Francisco, July 2009.

Bring on the photos, Relyn...keep 'em comin'! I just love seeing photos of anything and everything... and it's been wonderful have so many glimpses of your trip--beautiful shots, beautiful moments... Happy Weekend ((HUGS))

I really miss San Fran. Haven't spent nearly enough time there. That top photo could be artwork.

dulcy said...

Well....actually, Relyn, it's kind of like taking a mini trip. I love seeing all your shots. Keep them coming!

Roban said...

These are amazing photos! I love how you put the two different "views" side-by-side. I love them all.... I guess two of the most striking photos (besides the first!) are the one of the Legion of Honor Museum and the alley... and the last one of the two homes. Even though I'd probably like the Victorian (and softer colors), the Mission District's vibrant colors are just glorious!

elk said...

beth said...

What a wonderful bunch of images!

Gigi said...

As far as I'm concerned, you can show us as many photos of SF as you like! These are great, and I love the diptychs you created. Plus, I love your answer to the driver who asked what you were doing! You rock. xoxo Gigi

I could never get too much San Francisco. My style would be more Mission district I think but the beauty of San Fran is that nothing is too far away.

I love every inch of it. And every inch of your blog for that matter.

Meri said...

Keep em coming. I love them all. . . the first one, though, is amazing.

Jessica said...

My favorite is the one you had the convo with the driver about...such a dichotomy! I love seeing these images from your trip!

meandering pearl said...

i love the legion of honor one, & the crosswalk one, filled with layers of education, then i love the other side, brimming with beauty of the soul

Southern Drawl said...

I simply had to comment, I came across your blog when searching for a recipie for rose tea <3 I am so pleasently surprised to see San Francisco! One reason among many that I hold the city so close to my heart is its diversity. That second picture is beautiful. It's wonderful all the that art found in the city. Take care!

spread your wings said...

i LOVE seeing all of your pictures. they're all so give us a good look at the city. but i particularly like the perspective you choose in the first one
and the on of the buildings - i mean who wouldn't want to stop and take a picture here? the contrast between those two buildings is so interesting.
please share more.

Connie said...

Juxtaposition...love the photos...
thanks.

Patti said...

Pictures are almost like being there...almost... I love the ones of old buildings and SF sure has an abundance of them! Keep on sharing!

Ilove San Francisco and you are capturing it in all its beauty! Keep 'em coming! And which do I like best? I can't resist a painted lady! (My verification word is ectophyd -- doesn't that sound like some weird bug?)

Oldies, but Goodies
