Painted Ladies at Alamo Square

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 29 January 2013 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

The famous Victorian homes located adjacent to Alamo Square in San Francisco, California. The City's skyline, including the TransAmerica Pyramid and San Francisco City Hall's dome (seen between the rooftops of the first and second home from the right) are in the background.

The two shots of the Painted Ladies that I took back in 2008 can be seen here and here. The detail is so much clearer in this photograph.

Photo captured August 20, 2012.

NIKON D7000 1/320 second F/9.0 ISO 100 60 mm (35mm equiv.)

Isn't this a great park, Steven? We have been there a few times as well and it is just a great look at the city as well as the Mission Deloras nearby. Our son and daughter-in-law lived not to far from here for awhile...And you are right, that Nikon does wonders especially when in the hands af an artist in the first place..Your work is so magnificent! I LOVE this shot ! Great piece here...

This viewing of these homes as in your photo are shown in some of the better books on Victorian

Your D7000 certainly does this iconic scene proud. I'm happy to say this was crossed off our 'bucket list' in 1984.
