I shot these iconic Painted Ladies in November during an impending/incoming rain storm, I know, hard to believe for San Francisco. The shot turned out well, but I still wanted to try to get a decent sunset in here. So, when I returned in April of this year I tried again. I like the colors and clarity in this one a bit better. So, since I am happy with this one it's time to scratch the Painted Ladies in Alamo Square off the checklist. A few things I did to reduce the busy-ness in this shot was to place the street light in line with one of the windows in the house and line the fountain up with the space between the bush and the front steps. EXIF should be available in the "actions" tab above the photo. Below is the previous shot from November of 2011.
