Painted Ladies At First Light by RobertSchmalle

I was in the bay area for a wedding (a friend’s wedding; I don’t shoot weddings so don’t ask). The next morning I had time for one quick shoot. Heading out to Marin to shoot the Golden Gate would take too long. So I needed something I knew I could get to easily, set up and shoot at sunrise. I had taken a night shot of the Painted Ladies before, but was never really happy with it so I decided to do a reshoot.

They are a row of homes built at the end of the 19th century in the Victorian style. In the 1960s the they were painted by the owners in the vibrant colors they are now, and in the 1970s they were dubbed the Painted Ladies in a book by the same name.
