San Francisco Architecture

This was a great trip to San Francisco.  I attended a conference and also found some time for photography.  I made it a point to NOT shoot the Golden Gate Bridge or trolleys, as I always seem to do when I visit.  Instead, I concentrated on the city’s interesting architecture.  I hope you enjoy these shots.  My favorite is the opening image of the spiral staircase at the Mechanics Institute.  It had to have been built by a photographer.

    How did you make all of the people leave the city so that you could get such uninhabited shots? I’ve been in-and-out of SF for decades and never saw 16th Ave tiled stairs. Thank you. [I'm going to find it on my next trip.]

    Dr. Thapa — These were ALL good . . . but I especially like “Art Walk” and, for some reason, “Meet Me under the Stairs” REALLY captures me! Keep it up :)

    Wow! Those are stunning. My uncle shared your site with me and I’m so glad that he did. I’d be hard-pressed to pick a favorite, but I, too, love the Art Walk stairway and Meet Me Under the Stairs. The first one, is of course, gorgeous, too! Excellent work.

    Mahesh, I really envy your frequent travel sometimes. You get such a wonderful variety of photographs. This set is very nice; I’m particularly fond of the interior shot of the cathedral with the giant cross of stained glass.
