Three recent very unusual murals, all of which featured eyes, all of which presented some interesting cropping opportunities, all of which were taken with my iPhone 6 Plus.

Grey Series, 3 December 2015: Rain and Concrete.

Standard

Good Evening:

San Francisco enjoyed a series of storms and showers today, and the raindrops produced some effected I liked on the concrete slabs of the nearby buildings.

The beginning of a storm splattering on the State Building on Polk:

And after the storm as the concrete began to dry:

Meanwhile, the Superior Court building on Redwood Alley developed its own patterns.

Maybe it’s just me, well, probably it’s just me, well, almost certainly it’s just me, but grey has always seemed like far too underrated a color.

Recent Shots of San Francisco City Hall. (Weekly Photo Challenge: Trio)

Standard

Good Morning:

I believe that an unsurprisingly surprising/surprisingly unsurprising number of people have taken a photo of San Francisco’s City Hall at the same time of day every day for an entire year. Not yours truly, although it might sometimes seem that way. Presenting a trio of recent shots, all taken with my iPhone 6 Plus.

Edited in iPhoto, using the unfavorable light to experiment with a silhouette effect.

The folks at City Hall like to turn their property into a giant decoration. Never could find out what that gold and silver theme means.

San Francisco City Hall @ Sunset, November 2015. (Weekly Photo Challenge: Ornate)

Standard

Good Evening:

True, San Francisco City Hall has some very ornate decorations.

Sometimes, so does the sky behind it.

During the five minutes spent taking that second picture, at least 50 people joined me in photographing the scene.
