The Palace of Fine Arts
The Palace of Fine Arts was my next stop on my night photography tour of San Francisco. This beautiful palace was constructed as part of the Panama Pacific Exposiition in 1915. The residents of San Francisco were so enamored with this structure that they asked the organizers of the exposition to preserve it. I am so glad they did. It is simply fabulous!
The palace is located approximately a 1/4 mile from Crissy Field. So it made sense to to walk there after photographing the Golden Gate. This time I wasn't so concerned about my safety. The palace is in the middle of a very nice neighborhood in the marina district. There were numerous people out walking their dogs. What a fubulous place to live!
