Lovely picture Stephen, like the way you captured the wide ranging style of the different architectures. Beautiful image of this fascinating place.

A stunning scene Stephen,although the strip of water at the bottom of the shot distracts my eye a bit.

It reminds me of a hill of old-fashioned wooden building blocks. Love the straight on composition.
31 Jan 2009 5:34pm
wonderful clarity and crispness -- verry appropriate for this subject. Including the strip of water really MAKES this. Good work

I like the view as a big jig-saw puzzle, with all the various colours.

A very soothing view. I went bike riding along here and it feels great! Excellent capture of this area of SF!

Cool shot.,.you're so lucky you have hills!!! If i took that shot here, you'd only see the first row of buildings!!

@Susan: I love Florida. There's usually a bridge somewhere to allow a larger view. Best to you, Susan.
Splendid image, I like the sharp lines and colors of this one, the depth and composition.
You must be in a boat:-)

@sherri: Hi, Sherri. No. Aquatic Park Pier wraps around this small harbor in a near full circle.It is in terrible disrepair - but I was by there Thursday and it looks as though they've begun some restorations. If the sinking State and local budgets allow this to continue forward.
great detail and wonderful composition.

THis photo is so clear and sharp!
31 Jan 2009 9:17pm
A lovely wide view of what seems to be a nice area. I like the gentle sunlight hitting those buildings .

@Observing: These homes and apartments overlook a view of The Bay which includes Angel Island, Alcatraz, and the Golden Gate. This is beyond 'a nice area' - you are looking at some serious money on this hill, Mike.
Wow, such diverse and beautiful building forms... another wonderful capture! Thanks again for the tour. Have a great weekend!:-)

@hugo poon: Thanks, Hugo - we're almost done with 'touring' for now. I think you'll enjoy tomorrow's post - which loosely connects to this one. I hope you do. You have a good weekend as well...
Beautiful light and colors here. Good one.

What a delicious photo. This is a scene I haven't seen. No fog, either. Lovely.
1 Feb 2009 3:30am
A super shot, Stephen. So colourful and packed with the hustle and bustle of big city life. The water really balances the scene
1 Feb 2009 4:59am
Nice overview. So many little boxes... Thanks for your recent comments. I've been swamped with work and having a hard time finding time to spend with my first love - photos and my friends here!

@willow: Create your world in such a way that you will expand the time for what is most important to you.
The colors and layers of buildings are marvelous. Beautiful clear day.

i wonder why it is called russian?
7 Feb 2009 1:22pm
@yz: Russian fur traders - from the north - settled the west coast of this continent ahead of the Spanish - with settlements as far south as The Russian River - about 100 km (60 miles) north of San Francisco. When Gold Rush era populations began settling the hill - they discovered a small Russian cemetery there. The cemetery was soon removed and the hill was named in the honor of the unidentified deceased. FYI.
