Double Meme - Trees at the Palace of Fine Arts - June 5, 2011

When my friend, Merle, was visiting recently from Hilo, Hawaii, one of the stops
on our tour of San Francisco was the Palace of Fine Arts.  While the temperatures
were still cool, it was a glorious sunny day and we got some wonderful photos.
I loved the tree shadows and I am posting them both to Sundays in My City and
Shadow Shot Sunday, #159.  I enjoy both of these memes very much and urge you
to check them out and add your photography!










It was so nice to be there on a Monday when there was almost no one else around. 
Of course, all that is going to change, now that school vacations have begun and
tourism is going to be in full swing in our beautiful area of the country!

  2. This wonderful noted place.
    A collection of sightseeing photographs of San Francisco is my important souvenir.

    Many slopes are left in my impression very much.
    San Francisco is scenic wonderland.

    Thank you.

  9. How I love weeping willows! As a child I used to like to play under one in my "tent" because I was convinced nobody could see me. The second shot is just superb.

    BE MY COMPANION

    Come here, my shadow,
    Do not delay;
    Be my companion,
    Show me the way;
    Teach me your secrets,
    Chant as we go
    Of light and darkness—
    Make my heart glow!
