> Wednesday, March 08, 2006: Oscar Night (or pretty darn close...)

(click the thumbnail above for a larger format)

I took this photo on Sunday evening and I really should have posted it on Monday but I forgot about it... So, a few days late, here's a photo of Oscar Night which took place on Sunday followed by about 40 million TV viewers in the United States (one of them featured on this photo). If you're interested in the results of these Awards or want to see some footage, this is the place to go to.

Never mind the awards, when you can see THIS! What a beautiful shot!

Now, I want to thank the Academy, Blogger, Google, Dell, Intel, SBC ...

LOL tomate! I actually think the GGB in this photo looks like the statue itself (only prettier). (submitted on March 08, 2006)  

Great shot. Manuel, do you use a Canon? (submitted on March 08, 2006)  

Fantabuloso! (submitted on March 08, 2006)  


What a great shot!

Looking forward to take the grand tour next week as I'll be in SFO. I'll go, for sure, in some of the great locations that you presented through your blog. Ever thought that San Francisco Daily Photo could be as interesting as the Lonely planet guide could be?

Nice shot! You caught one of my favorite subjects from one of my favorite locations. I have wandered all over The Presidio, whch is where I think you took this, and I have yet to get all the good angles. (submitted on March 08, 2006)  

Manuel, I just updated the link, I missed it the first time.

Really nice shot. Now get ready for some truly inclement weather this weekend. (submitted on March 08, 2006)  

Great shot Manuel. I love the color. (submitted on March 08, 2006)  

Nice shot Manuel! I just hate that Brokeback mountain didn't win! (submitted on March 08, 2006)  

Bob: primarily Canon yes.

Melissa: thank you so much for these kind words. I hope you'll enjoy your stay and that the site will help you go out of the mainstream touristy spots a little bit.

John: I actually took this one from a Pacific Heights hilltop.

Luggi: that's right...

Anne: I was rooting for Capote. But Brokeback received quite a few awards so all in all, it's not bad.

Absolutely beautiful! This takes me back to cool San Franciso evenings and driving by the Golden Gate Bridge all lit up and beautiful. I miss the City!! (submitted on March 10, 2006)  

Great use of foreground here to give us some perspective. Beautiful shot.
