One of the largest urban parks in the world, Golden Gate Park stretches for three miles on the western edge of San Francisco. There’s not a single “Keep Off the Grass” sign and its 1,017 acres are a tonic for mind and body. Two major museums, splendid gardens and facilities for more than 20 sports confirm that this is a playground in every sense of the word.
San Francisco’s best angle is often through a single lens reflex camera or a digital viewfinder. Photogenic with startling contrasts of new and old, land and sea, the City has been a popular subject even from the early days when English-born photographer Eadweard Muybridge captured some of her famous curves and inclines.
