Audrey Kallander

Long distance: Shining white buildings and the impact of water: the Bay, the bridges, the islands and the fog.

Middle distance (7x7): an Art Deco bridge, an old federal prison on an island, skyscrapers, murals, beaches, ferry traffic, sailboats, trolleys, houseboats, seals (and the occasional whale), the Painted Ladies, and a miriad of Asian architectural details in Japantown, Chinatown, and the Richmond.

Close up: Tourism defines the edges of San Francisco. Wander in past those visual "safety" barriers and you find a spicy, grubby, beautiful mix of cultures, colors, and classes living cheek to jowl.

What a great city.
