I've only been to SF once, and just for a weekend. These photos remind me I need to get back there.

Those red flowers/bushes really pop out of your picture. That vase has intricate carvings. I remember stopping there and just staring at it.

I would love to visit places like this with the fancy buildings and statues, and all of the nature around them. Oddly, the closest I've had to that was walking through the cemetery. That was one of the first places where I learned to like nature. Beautiful duck ponds, trees all around, and interesting statures and buildings.

Thanks Doan, I was lucky that it was a clear day with blue skies :)

Bang, Thank you. It was difficult to get a photo there that day with all those people around.

Ann, it is beautiful and I will do that one of these days when I feel like being a tourist :D

Francis, Aw, you're sweet, thanks and you do need to get back here.

Karen, yeah that vase is really cool.

Thanks Betchai, now I have to get inside because the grounds there are gorgeous, I will soon.

Ratty, cemeteries are great for nature photo opps. It's also good for writing because it's so peaceful and serene.

Thank you Diane, though not as gorgeous as your Japanese shots :)
