I had a couple of hours to spare in San Francisco earlier this month, so I walked around Chinatown with my camera. I wanted to show Chinatown as part of San Francisco. The city’s iconic Transamerica Pyramid is a few blocks from Chinatown, so I took a view looking towards the Bay. I did a little touchup in Photoshop, but the picture is mostly about pointing the camera.
Where ever you go, you are bound to see new things. The temptation is to take pictures of landmark attractions or beautiful landscapes, while ignoring shops and store windows. But having pictures of the town adds revives memories of the place, and it helps show others what it was really like. Matsushima is famous for its bay having over two hundred small islands. I took photos of shops as we walked along the street skirting the shoreline.
