As the sun sets, we wait to take the last ferry home.

So Tim.. Is taking a commuter ferry more economical that using a car in SF..
I've never needed a car in SF except to get into and out of the city. No place to park and traffic is difficult.
I suppose it is much easier to leave the car outside the city.

Nice shots of the city. There seems to be a lot of construction going on. And, I love the park idea!!

Looking forward to some open fields! :-P

Thanks. Yes, there is a great deal of construction going on. The little parks are great, some are actually on rooftops! The builders have been very creative in meeting the San Francisco small park requirement

Whether or not the ferry is more economical depends on where you're going in San Francisco. It's a no-brainer if you're going to the Financial District, the Embarcadero, or AT&T Park for a Giants game. The ferry from Larkspur to SF costs me $11.50 round trip. My Clipper card works on all public transit in the City. Driving in, the Golden Gate Bridge toll costs $6.75 if I use my electronic Fastrack. The last time I drove down to SFMOMA the parking for 7 hours cost me $18. Plus gas and the aggravation of driving in San Francisco.

On the other hand, if my destination is Golden Gate Park, the De Young Museum, the Presidio, Fort Mason, or Ocean Beach, I generally take my car because these destinations are closer to the GG Bridge and don't require a cross town drive.

The Ferry is worthless for going to SF for an evening out because the last ferry is at 9:35pm. It's much too early to take in dinner and a show which generally are over after 10pm or later.

Like I said...it depends. :-D

Thanks Kurt. I think that every time I have visited SFMOMA with a camera, I've taken a photograph of this scene. It changes with the different time of day lighting and weather. It is one of the areas they did not change with the remodel and expansion of the building and I'm glad for that.

We'll look forward to seeing it. What other interesting sights are there to see in your part of Texas?

I am about to post a bunch of recent shots but more are still to come. I have to go back to that place where I started shooting to continue but I need to wait for better weather; it's been raining here quite a lot...so Whenever we get some sunshine, I will go back.
There is a lot to be seen. I want to visit a cotton museum which unfortunately requires a lenghty drive but that's not an issue.

OK, so I visited Frisco (external link) which has been growing very rapidly mainly due to the fact that Toyota has established a huge facility out there.
While driving to a place in Frisco to meet one of my clients to discuss her daughter's live wedding painting on March 3rd, I stumbled upon an area called Hall Park (external link) loaded with some fascinating public art pieces. I didn't have time and nerve to shoot them all; it was brutally cold and windy that day but I shall return and finish the session. Have a look at the map of that area http://www.hallpark.co​m …TourMap_FINAL-low_res.pdf (external link)
So, here are some shots from the Hall Collection which is a part of Texas Garde Sculpture.
There is an app called Ottocast which you can download from the iPhone Appstore and from Google Play. Once installed, you then look for Frisco, TX Hall Park Collection and you can listen to a podscat done by the original artist!
First sculpture I came across is Jaguar by John Henry.
The second one is Right Angles #23 by Gunnar Theel

Another view of "The Headlines".
The other side of the same lake has a series of sculptures called Moon Dancers (9 pieces) by Jerry Daniel.

Coil S2 by Andrew Rogers
A sculpture by Mac Whiney. I coudn't find the title for it. There is one listed as Laredo but it looks like a different piece.
