Golden Gate Park: Part 1

South Windmill, Golden Gate Park, SF

Ocean Beach, SF

Hello all… So after spending a year taking pictures of San Francisco, I’ve decided to embark on a not-so-superficial view of the city. My husband and I love this special place and I hope to share that here with the help of my trusty Canon Digital Rebel XT, a newly acquired Flip Video camera, and a deeply buried set of writing skills.

After San Francisco will be Buenos Aires (in December). After BA, who knows? Amsterdam, maybe New Zealand. No matter where we land, this will be my information depository, of sorts. Pictures, videos, articles, not to mention some informative how to’s, will all make their way here. Should make for an interesting read so hope you stick around. Cheers!
