In our home, my wife & I have a large print of this photograph at the top of our entry stairs. I'm surprised when locals don't recognize it. Sure, it's dramatic & impactful. Clearly it's industrial. And considering where it's located in our home, it must have some significance. Spoiler alert: It's a Golden Gate Bridge support. The Painted Ladies & the Golden Gate Bridge are the most recognizable San Francisco landmarks. Thing is, we've seen it a bunch of times. Endless photos, television, & movies depict it. So how is it so few people recognize it from this angle? The International Orange color's perfect. Sure, there's no water, but should that matter? Instead of trying to photograph an entire subject, like a full bridge, why not zoom into some details & showcase those too?
I just love all these painted ladies in San Francisco. I spent the day wandering around Ashbury and The Haight, snaping pics of the colorist movement that is alive and well in the architecture, art, and people.
While San Francisco may be famous for these victorian homes, Louisville Kentucky has 45 square blocks and more than 1,400 structures in Old Louville. It's one of the country's largest preservation districts, filled with rows and rows of colorful Victorian homes designed to mirror mansions found in London.
