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.
The Alamo Square park is a great place to read a book and relax on the beautiful grounds while admiring the adorable “painted ladies” across the street and the city skyline behind them is spectacular.
Note: This image is taken before sunrise, I stop by three times in last year in the evening always go home empty handed due to parking traffic in SF , foggy weather and the park is always crowded with visitors. So I decided shooting before sunrise when no one is there…Let me know when you think!
Thanks you for stop by-:)
Met a sunset at the famous Painted Ladies, it was beautiful, so I grabbed an iPhone and captured 1/100th of the beauty that was around me.
