This type of photograph would look terrific on a large canvas or as a metal print, but a print on any other media would look just as stunning!

 

A large public sculpture, Cupid’s Span by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, was installed in 2002 along the Rincon Park area in San Francisco’s Embarcadero. Resembling Cupid�s bow and arrow with the arrow implanted in the ground, the artists stated that the statue was inspired by San Francisco’s reputation as the home port of Eros, hence the stereotypical bow and arrow of Cupid.  -wikipedia

Imagine celebrating the Holidays from the fantastic world of San Francisco on the Embarcadero just outside the Ferry Building that’s being taken over by a surreal family of eclectic circus animals and various assorted wildlife. Then imagine the nostalgic great Laffing Sal born from old fun houses throughout the USA and scattered throughout sunny California beach towns like Santa Cruz, Long Beach, and Santa Monica; and who can forget her raucous laughters echoing from San Francisco’s own Playland at the Beach, and now overshadowing Old St Nick’s Ho Ho Ho’s with her boisterous haunting laughters!? Then toss in Einstein, Einstein? Yes Einstein! Imagine all that while the Navy Blue Angels fly at the speed of sound high atop the San Francisco Bay as tourists from around the world watch in awe and disbelieve! You’re not in Kansas anymore! You’ve just entered the imaginative world of wingsdomain.com!

 

“Dear Betsy Jane, having the time of my life in San Francisco, wish you were here, they don’t do Christmas in San Francisco like we do it in Kansas! Happy Holidays!”

 

This creative photo artwork will look terrific as a greeting card or on a large canvas, and any print on any other media will look just as stunning!

 

The San Francisco Ferry Building is a terminal for ferries that travel across the San Francisco Bay, a food hall, and also has offices, located on The Embarcadero in San Francisco, California. On top of the building is a 245-foot tall clock tower, with four clock dials, each 22 feet in diameter, which can be seen from Market Street, a main thoroughfare of the city.

 

The Embarcadero (Spanish: Wharf), is the eastern waterfront and roadway of the Port of San Francisco, San Francisco, California, along San Francisco Bay, constructed atop an engineered seawall on reclaimed land. It derives its name from the Spanish verb embarcar, meaning “to embark”; embarcadero itself means “the place to embark”. The Central Embarcadero Piers Historic District was added to the National Register of Historic Places on November 20, 2002.

 

The Blue Angels is the United States Navy s flight demonstration squadron. The Blue Angels team was formed in 1946,[1] making it the second oldest formal flying aerobatic team (under the same name) in the world, after the French Patrouille de France formed in 1931. The Blue Angels six demonstration pilots fly the F/A-18 Hornet, typically in more than 70 shows at 34 locations throughout the United States each year, where they still employ many of the same practices and techniques used in their aerial displays in 1946. An estimated 11 million spectators view the squadron during air shows each full year. The Blue Angels also visit more than 50,000 people in a standard show season (March through November) in schools and hospitals. Since 1946, the Blue Angels have flown for more than 260 million spectators.

 

Laffing Sal is one of several automated characters that were built primarily to attract carnival and amusement park patrons to funhouses and dark rides throughout the United States. Its movements were accompanied by a raucous laugh that sometimes frightened small children and annoyed adults.

The San Francisco Bay Area has always held a certain place in my heart, it is a special place with a rich history and elegance that have been appreciated by all that have visited and an even more profound love for those who have either spent time here or for some lucky few who have had the pleasure of living here.  After growing up in Sacramento, I spent most of my adult life living in San Francisco, and even now, San Francisco is no further than a BART ride across the bay from where I currently make my residence in the East BayThe Beatles sang, “There are places that I remember…”, the San Francisco Bay Area is one of those special places.  In this series of blogs which I call “San Francisco Bay Area Through The Eyes of a Local Artist and Photographer”, I will take my audience through the fabulous streets of the San Francisco Bay Area as interpreted by myself, a long time San Francisco Bay Area local.

Reds Java House and The Bay Bridge at San Francisco’s Embarcadero

The Embarcadero (Spanish: Wharf), is the eastern waterfront and roadway of the Port of San Francisco, San Francisco, California, along San Francisco Bay, constructed atop an engineered seawall on reclaimed land. It derives its name from the Spanish verb embarcar, meaning “to embark”; embarcadero itself means “the place to embark”. The Central Embarcadero Piers Historic District was added to the National Register of Historic Places on November 20, 2002.

The Embarcadero right-of-way begins at the intersection of Second and King Streets near AT&T Park, and travels north, passing under the San Francisco – Oakland Bay Bridge. The sidewalk along the waterfront between Harrison Street and Broadway was named “Herb Caen Way…” after the death of celebrated local columnist Herb Caen in 1997. The three dots, or ellipsis, deliberately are included in honor of columnist Herb Caen’s Pulitzer Prize winning writing style. The Embarcadero continues north past the Ferry Building at Market Street, Fisherman’s Wharf, and Pier 39, before ending at Pier 45. A section of The Embarcadero which ran between Folsom Street and Drumm Street was formerly known as East Street.

Red’s Java House, the most famous of all waterfront dives, or as The Chronicle’s Carl Nolte once put it, “the Chartres Cathedral of cheap eats.” There is still no place quite like Red’s on Pier 30, not even its estranged sibling down the road (Java House, which has its own type of charm), and there likely won’t be again. It’s a San Francisco institution, with a rich history — and with a possible Warriors arena on Piers 30-32, its future is sure to be an interesting one as well.
