> Wednesday, March 15, 2006: Happy Duckie
I took this photo at Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park, very near to where this one was taken. On weekends, you will see people renting boats and cruising around. I like the place better without the boats and I bet the duckies will agree.
From my visit to San Francisco a few years ago, Golden Gate Park was probably my favorite place in the city. It might have been a quiet day, but I found it really calm and peaceful, not to mention beautiful. (submitted on March 14, 2006)
I like the sunlight...
I've been taken your advice on taking photos, I'll show you some later. =) (submitted on March 15, 2006)
I am curious to know what kind of settings you used on your lens (i.e., aperature and shutter speed) and even what kind of gear you used. This shot really caused me to take in a breath. You find yourself floating from the grass, across the water and up towards the light as you look at it. At the same time, the way you framed it seems to intimate that we cannot quite see the source of the light, only its effects. So there is a sort of mysterious element. I don't know if you intended all that; however, this photograph is surely tasteful. Thanks for posting this photograph. (submitted on March 15, 2006)
first, you are mistaken about the scale of the map. The park is mileeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees of greenery. (about 5sqkm ?). About 1.5 BIGGER THAN CENTRAL PARK!!!!
then, MOST of what you see is "built" like a road, "looks" like a road but is NOT a road - there are full size walking or biking or horseback riding "paths".
The major roadways are:
north south: 19th avenue (california highway 1), 38th
east west, JFK and MLK. The first is CLOSED for traffic all week ends and holidays. The second is partialy closed for biking. (basically, they make sure there is no crossing of the park so people wont cross the park, but go and stop at the park)
Believe me, when you need to go there, it's kindof a nightmare to find the place not closed, and then to find a parking spot. (submitted on March 15, 2006)
