CULTURAL CROSSROADS


This is the corner of 24th Street and Valencia in San Francisco. You can see a section of the mural I posted several days ago. Note the billboards in Spanish. The Mission district has a little bit of everything.

Very classic black and white. Sharp and bright. Good job.

when you put it in B&W it becomes so timeless ... can't really tell what decade it was taken in.

Ame said...

Exactly Piika! I was just gonna say Photo that it's almost hard to tell when this was taken....great shot! Do you spend a lot of time in The City? I don't get there enough, sadly. Keep it...I love it! ;)

Cristina said...

What a nice surprise to see a little bit of that beautiful mural. There is such a nice feel to this shot--i guess timeless as piika writes.

I love your San Francisco pictures. It makes me want to go there even more.

San Francisco has too much spanish influence, I have to read more about that.

Great shot

Ben said...

It's a very nice street scene.
As many of your audience saying timeless feel of B&W is excellent choice for this particuler scene.
I love it.

Kris said...

I echo the use of b/w! pls bring us more of the diversity of San Francisco.

I remember the 1960's when so many of my friends decided to head out for the wonderful adventure of living in San Francisco. Some are still there, some have returned here. I know they'd love to see this photo for quite a few lived in the Mission District, I recall.

I love black and white! It is a wonderful photo and you really have to look to know the era...is it the 70's, 80's, now? Great photo.

Answers the question, "Can you take a photo in any modern urban area without including someone using a cell phone?" Not likely.

Nice slice of modern life!

Ash said...

Great shot and nice title too!

Looks great in B&W. In colour it would have been too busy.

Loved the cherry season photo. Wonderful composition.
