This is great - the sky is perfect and just seems to match the street scene perfectly! I love the clarity and the colors - again great shot - nice perspective looking down the street - you need to write an ebook on how to take great City shots!

@Sharon: It was early - sun had just come up a few minutes before. They're still working on that first cup of coffee.

Les rues de San Francisco sont bien calmes sur cette image. Je n'y vois ni la police ni les bandits qui se pourchassent, bien loin du célèbre soap que nous regardions à la télévision il y a quelques années... je plaisante bien sûr !!!

@Marie LC: Ne pas plaisanter autour de AM3 ou le Lieutenant Stone & Détective Keller et viendra à vous!

Love this view of the city. What is the towering building in the distance? Beautiful soft colors!

13 Mar 2009 12:09pm

@Marcie: Thanks. I'm not sure which building you're referring to. The tall brown building is the Bank of America Building. The tall building in the furthest distance - center - is the relatively new St. Regis Hotel at 3rd and Mission Streets. An elegant 5 Star affair.

I'll never ever get tired of photos of San Francisco, I love the name Montgomery, strange ;)

@Lorraine: Probably inspired by the famed San Francisco dry wall installer - Montgomery Malinowski De Ford.

I really enjoy your "Streets of San Francisco" shots - the rolling hills and distant buildings really are wonderful....

@paulski: Ah - too bad. I know how these affairs can be and hope you get an opportunity to return soon.

A fantastic view right down into the city, a cool shot indeed. I also like the older houses on the left, very nice.

i think i really have a sucker for urban pictures in the last time... just a street actually with lots of cars and houses but put in a good compositioned photo... i like it and especially the colors.
