The Gardener is a store in the San Francisco Ferry Building that celebrates beautiful and useful things for the home and garden. The Marketplace shop, located in the Nave, offers a refreshing shopping experience for city dwellers seeking uniquely crafted tabletop, cooking, dining, and garden items—from garden tools and baskets, to handmade ceramics and linens, to distinctive furniture. The merchandise changes with the seasons and immediately wins the hearts of those who share a gardener's aesthetic and spirit.

The Ferry Building store is the third The Gardener store in the Bay Area. The first opened in Berkeley in 1984, as the inspired vision of owner Alta Tingle. Alta broke new ground by connecting house to garden with her unique aesthetic for functional objects that serve to enrich the everyday experience. The original store on Fourth Street endures as a nationally-acclaimed and locally-beloved mecca for discerning shoppers. A second store, which opened in 1998, resides in a barn amidst a bountiful garden in the wine country town of Healdsburg—one hour north of San Francisco.

    Don't understand all the views and favs. Something is going on there. The DOF is pretty bad. If your new to close-up work think about the following for DOF...

    1.) Aperture
    2.) Focal Length
    3.) Camera to subject distance

    Just trying to help!
