Glimpses of San Francisco

June 8, 2008

San Francisco capture in pictures. San francisco, California is considered a photographers paradise by many who live in the San Francisco Bay area. Being a resident of this area, I have done my part of trying to capture this beautiful city with my camera. Even though I cannot do enough justice of portraying its beauty, I have tried to present some of the sights in San Francisco. Wherever possible, I have tried to add some blurb about these different places in San Francisco with help from wikipedia.org

The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the “golden gate”, the opening of the San Francisco Bay onto the Pacific Ocean

Peeping Tom

April 26, 2008

Peeping Tom!

A pair of moaning doves made our backyard their home. They build their nest over the lamp and carefully tended their egg and here is their prize. Look at the peeping Tom peeping out of its nest while the mom watches over.
