A Tree along Market Street

San Francisco

In front of the Matson Building - which we visited yesterday. I loved how the light fell upon this humble tree. It being Christmas morning - I adopted it as my personal Christmas Tree.

@Ted: Well - I wouldn't trade watching kids around the tree on Christmas morning. But as those days are long gone - I had a blast!

I enjoyed this living tree in an otherwise so characteristic architecture cityscapes. Great color and light.

I love the light in this - and the empty streets!! And now you will have to visit your tree every year to see if Santa left you something underneath!!!

Good to see a tree in the center of an urban landscape. Amazing that you got all of the building lines so straight and parallel.

@Marcie: Perspective control (under 'Distort') in Photoshop, Marcie. And thanks for the visit.

Once again, the light is excellent in this photo. The light reflecting on the sidewalk adds to the mood.

The vertical shaft of light on the First Republic bank makes for an interesting pattern with the shapes of the Yemen and Deutsche banks. best...jerry
