> 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...

> 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...

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.

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...

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.
