Here's a second post on this blog of the infamous Painted Ladies at Alamo Square in San Francisco. I finally got around to getting enlargements of various photos (including this one) taken in San Francisco. And after coming home with eight enlargements, I realized that I ran out of wall space. So I took my enlargement of this photo to my office, where the walls are quite barren. I was talking to a colleague at the office about how I felt the photo didn't incorporate the Painted Ladies entirely, and that the very ends seemed "cut off." She looked at it a different way, which I totally agreed with, which made me like this shot the best. She said having the ends "cut off" gave her the illusion that the Painted Ladies continued well beyond the frame and didn't stop at the ends of the frame. Photo taken April 15, 2008.
The other shot I captured of the Painted Ladies was further back and higher so that I could capture the rotunda of City Hall in the background. The shade on the grass was also somewhat distracting in the other photo. Here, the bright green grass seems to "ground" the homes.
