The Painted Ladies of San Francisco are an iconic sight across the world. Their unique beauty is well-captured in this photograph, giving us all a glimpse of this Bay Area neighborhood. The steep streets are revealed with the great lines, the houses and the power lines all climbing along the frame. The colors also climb, with saturation increasing as we find ourselves higher on the hill. This brings out the many varied details within each house, said to contain secret symbols. The photograph has exceptionally crisp focus and is truly a pleasure to view.
