City Layers

Painted Ladies, Alamo Square, San Francisco, California

San Francisco has so many attractions and places to visit that it is hard to fit everything in. One such attraction is Alamo Square, where the famous "Painted Ladies" can be seen. The painted ladies refer to a row of Victorian houses painted in colors that make the architectural details stand out. I was surprised to find out that their nickname was only established in 1978 with the publishing of a book. 

Alamo Square gives visitors a unique perspective that show the Victorian houses that were built in the 1890's with the city layered behind them as a backdrop. On this day, I had a layer of clouds and sky that resulted in four layers.
