this is my first post in a couple of months. i've been busy outside my 'comfort zone' which is my tropical fish and tanks.

i've been attempting more landscape/architecture and wildlife shots but now i'm interested in people too. :rolleyes:

one place i practice is the palace of the legion of honor, one of san francisco's many museums.
it is a three-quarter-scale adaptation of the 18th-century palais de la légion d’honneur in paris.
if you're interested, you can read more about it here...

thanks RFC. :smile:

this location is a favorite for wedding photographers and tourists alike. therefore, it's also a good place to take pics of people...

dez, greg, george, thank you very much for your comments! :smile:

i've hesitated to post up my pics as the quality of pics here can be intimidating.

but if i don't post up and get constructive comments, i'll never get better! :rolleyes:

i will definitely start posting more.

Nice pics! My buddy and I went there one dark morning and took a bunch of pics...the only one I really liked was a long exposure of a Muni bus turning around at the fountain in the fog.
