San Francisco At Random

From the very first time that I was driven around by my brother to see the city he called home, I fell in love with the beautiful houses. They are as much an attraction as the Golden Gate Bridge or the stunning bay views or driving up and down the hills or even savoring the full flavor of a dungeness crab.

From that very first time until today, as much as possible I never go to the city without a camera in my hand. No matter what I go to the city for, I find time to click on the beautiful houses.

Let me show you what my lens had captured over the years, some are drive bys and others are walk bys.

Someone commented on flickr that this is an example of a mock Tudor. Glad for the info.

An Italianate?

At only 49 (+/-) sq mi, land is a premium in the city, so take advantage of every possible spot for gardening.

If you see this image, you would not think of SF.

And this one has that Parisian flavor to it. I see something new each time I aim the lens at something in the city.

Modern and traditional sit side by side.

  2. Real estate properties are so expensive in SF just as NYC but the houses there really look stunning - even those ones in Lombard Street!
