Alamo Square, San Francisco

Osher Lifelong Learning Institute “Walking the Neighborhoods” class taught and led by Max Kirkeberg.

Alamo Square is a residential neighborhood and park in San Francisco, California. The Square consists of four city blocks at the top of a hill overlooking much of San Francisco, with a number of large and architecturally distinctive mansions along the perimeter. The park includes a playground and a tennis court, and is frequented by neighbors, tourists, and dog owners. A row of Victorian houses facing the park on Steiner Street, known as the painted ladies, are often shown in the foreground of panoramic pictures of the city's downtown area. On a clear day, the Transamerica Pyramid building and the tops of the Golden Gate Bridge and Bay Bridge can be seen from the park’s center. San Francisco’s City Hall can be seen directly down Fulton Street.

Hi Blogger,

The mood and tone of the photos are gentle yet very perky! I like how heartwarming it is, and great editing skills by the way!
