  2. Mission Mural Arts Alley - Osage Street

    NIKON D90 (28mm, f/13, 1/100 sec, ISO200) This in-your-face Mission mural art is found at the corner of Osage Street and 25th Street in the Mission.

  3. Sea of Fall Foliage

    NIKON D90 (46mm, f/4.5, 1/100 sec, ISO0) Even in northern California, there are trees whose leaves turn bright yellow and red before they end up on the ground or street in the fall. But we don’t have a lot of them that resembles a sea of fall foliage like this image, figuratively speaking….

     
  4. Abandoned

    NIKON D90 (32mm, f/5.6, 1/80 sec, ISO0) When I was taking an evening walk in Lenox, I saw this abandoned building that drew my attention.

    NIKON D90 (50mm, f/8, 1/160 sec, ISO0) Golden hour brings richness out of nature, and it seems especially so in the fall when various natural colors are amplified.

    NIKON D90 (82mm, f/5.6, 1/8 sec, ISO200) Chapel at Mission Dolores Basilica is very popular among local couples as a venue for their wedding ceremony.

  8. Arch Corridor at Stockholm Olympic Stadium

    NIKON D90 (200mm, f/9, 1/125 sec, ISO400) The other day I received an email from DOM publishers who wanted to use my photo of Stockholm Olympic Stadium arch corridor (above) and another one from the stadium for their publication about sport buildings. They did not offer any financial…

     
  9. Mission Dolores Basilica

    NIKON D90 (82mm, f/13, 1/800 sec, ISO200) Mission Dolores is a major landmark in our neighborhood. Bus loads of visitors come to see the Old Mission and Basilica every day. One sunny day I was walking on Church street and saw the gate to a parking next to Children’s Council. The parking is…

    NIKON D90 (112mm, f/6.3, 1/200 sec, ISO200) Mission Mural Arts is popular among visitors, and some of them are very elaborate and impressive. But this alley, Lilac Street, which spans only two blocks between 24th and 26th Street behind Mission Street. Personally, I have never walked through this…
