Living the San Francisco Dream


San Francisco-the new and the old

San Francisco - the new and the old. Contrasting architectural styles and sizes somehow bring the past alive.

This picture was taken from the Yerba Buena Gardens near the Moscone Convention Center south of Market Street. The church is St. Patrick's Catholic Church, built prior to the great 1906  earthquake and fire, restored and seismically retrofitted after the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake.

St. Patrick's Catholic Church, SF

Hello Jennifer Mackay - free summer concert at Yerba Buena center was just about to start when the juxtaposition of the old and the new of these buildings caught my fancy.
