> Monday, April 24, 2006: Wall One Frame One

 
So, this will be the new Monday series with a few photos from this one wall that I found that has a few stories to tell. I'll try to keep the series short with probably just four or five frames. This first frame is a close-up, on following Mondays, I'll be moving around a bit and will probably finish by showing the entire wall. Happy Monday!

A photo of the new de Young Museum in Golgen Gate Park. I hope it's not too obvious that I like going to Museums on the weekends...

Something peaceful for the last workday of the week, have a nice weekend everyone!

> Thursday, April 20, 2006: Long Day At School?

 
I took this one at the same exact spot I had taken the photo of the innocent man. Those girls look like they had a long day at school.

> Wednesday, April 19, 2006: The Return Of The Palace

 
When posting the April 4th photo, I had promised something a little more conventional (and with a bit of luck, no mud involved), so I'm keeping my promise with this other shot of the Palace Of Fine Arts.

> Tuesday, April 18, 2006: Settlement

 
That's all I had on my memory card today, so I had to settle for it. Today was a really nice day in the city and we hadn't had a good sunset in a while. Consider it my monthly San Francisco sunset, that's right, technically the previous one was in March... (looking for excuses here...) Let's hope for a quiet day - today is the 100th anniversary of the 1906 earthquake...

> Sunday, April 16, 2006: Happy Easter

 
The new San Francisco Daily Photo widget is still not on the yahoo website, so let me post another photo here while waiting... I wanted to do something a little special for Easter Sunday and didn't feel like chasing bunnies or real Easter eggs, so that's the closest to an Easter egg that it's going to be... Happy Easter!

> Thursday, April 13, 2006: Portrait of a San Francisco rock star

 
The yahoo widget is still not on the yahoo website, so I decided to post a few things here so widget users would have something to look at!

This San Francisco rock icon lives on Haight Street of course. There's a little story behind the dollar sign that was tagged on the license plate, anyone of the locals know it? If not, answer tomorrow...

(click the thumbnail above for a larger format)

This time, we'll start off the week in multicolor. The previous image in this series can be viewed here. There will be one more next Monday, and then I'll move on to something different.

> Sunday, April 09, 2006: Ten Sixty Two: Louisville

 
(click the thumbnail above for a larger format)

There's a little over twenty 1940s buses trolleys in circulation in San Francisco. Each of them is painted using a different color scheme borrowed to another American city. This is number 1062: green and cream with a black stripe - colors used by The Louisville Railway Company. Oh, and please don't think that I know this by heart, I have a cheat sheet.

> Saturday, April 08, 2006: Homelessness

 
(click the thumbnail above for a larger format)

There are about eight thousand homeless in San Francisco, half of them living in shelters and rehabilitation centers and the other half on the streets.

> Friday, April 07, 2006: Nature At Work

 
(click the thumbnail above for a larger format)

After yesterday's mass of concrete, I needed a bit of greenery today, so here's another glance at Golden Gate Park.

> Thursday, April 06, 2006: Stacks Of Concrete

 
(click the thumbnail above for a larger format)

One of the embarcadero center buildings. The embarcadero center consists of plenty of office space and what you could consider a shopping mall (yes, there are a few shopping malls in San Francisco, for the longest time, I didn't think there were any, but I was wrong). Since I'm not very big on malls, I typically go there for the movie theater because it usually features films that you can't see anywhere else. Plenty of details here.

> Tuesday, April 04, 2006: The Palace Of Fine Photographic Arts

 
(click the thumbnail above for a larger format)

Almost a hundred days since I started this site and I realized I haven't posted a photo dedicated to the Palace Of Fine Arts, one of the most photographed places in San Francisco - even though you can actually see it on this photo. And... there's a few other highly photographed landmarks I have postponed until now: Postcard Row, Pier 39, Coit Tower, etc... So, let me try to fix the situation and by the same token, get it over with these... So, here's a photo of the Palace Of Fine Arts, and I hope it won't offend anyone, but when I saw this roll of film in the mud, I just couldn't resist and had to immortalize the symbol (I will post a more conventional photo in the next few days I promise!). Here's the history of this construction (it's pretty surprising), and some information about a really good science museum hosted there called the exploratorium. The palace also hosts a theater with some pretty diverse programming: concerts, theatre, spectacles, films, lectures, etc...

(click the thumbnail above for a larger format)

Back to more shadows and colors with this shadow over a modern house number in the Castro (the previous image in this series can be viewed here). Sorry I didn't publish a photo yesterday, I was on the road the whole day. With that, have a great week everyone!
PS: San Francisco Daily Photo just received a nice review from bloggeries that you can read here.

> Saturday, April 01, 2006: J'adore Dior

 
(click the thumbnail above for a larger format)

Admiration or possibly even adoration, in front of this piece from Marilyn Minter at the San Francisco Museum Of Modern Art, more commonly know as SFMOMA. It's not obvious on this image, but this is a painting, not a photograph. If you're interested, you can read a little bit about her work here.

> Friday, March 31, 2006: Row Of Triangles

 
(click the thumbnail above for a larger format)

A row of houses that caught my eye because it looked surreal in a strange kind of way.

> Thursday, March 30, 2006: Water, Butter And Wine...

 
(click the thumbnail above for a larger format)

...are the three things that make the world go around? Let's put some of you to work again (probably the locals): anybody recognizes this restaurant?

(we have two winners, see the comments)

> Wednesday, March 29, 2006: Goliath The Pacific Heights Robot

 
(click the thumbnail above for a larger format)

This is Goliath, a privately owned work of art installed in front of a house in Pacific Heights. The installation of the robot a few years ago had caused quite some reactions in the neighborhood because, as you can see, it is naked! This past Christmas, Goliath was even attacked and vandalized which explains why his head is leaning on the side right now. As you can see, Goliath has had some rough days, but he's still here, and standing!

> Tuesday, March 28, 2006: Find A Title!

 
(click the thumbnail above for a larger format)

This is the last one of those Union Square shots that I did 10 days ago that I'm planning to post, the other ones will remain in my private collection. But I'll probably do some more of that stuff in other neighborhoods in the weeks to come. It's pretty late and I wasn't sure how to title that photo - if you have an idea, please share and I'll update the title.

Some more Monday shadows and colors, with something a little different today as I've been trying to stay away from those walls and doors this weekend... the previous image can be viewed here.

> Sunday, March 26, 2006: Anatomy Of A Cable Car

 
(click the thumbnail above for a larger format)

Cable cars crossing path at one of the hilltops of California street, I just like their silhouettes, especially the bells.

> Wednesday, March 22, 2006: From Treasure Island To San Francisco

 
(click the thumbnail above for a larger format)

A closer view of Bay Bridge which links San Francisco to Oakland via Treasure Island. The portion between Treasure Island and Oakland was damaged during the 1989 earthquake and is currently being rebuilt. All the factoids and history about the bridge can be found here if you're interested.

> Tuesday, March 21, 2006: Window Shopping

 
(click the thumbnail above for a larger format)

One more Union Square shot from this past weekend, maybe I'll post one every other day, there's just three more. Window shopping: an American/English phrase meaning to look into glass windows of a shop for entertainment and imagine purchasing items without actually purchasing... (source: wikipedia)

> Monday, March 20, 2006: San Francisco Shadows and Colors: Turquoise

 
(click the thumbnail above for a larger format)

To start off the week, a third photo in the shadows and colors series (the previous image can be seen here). To be added to the palette of San Francisco houses today: turquoise. Have a good week!
