Notes on Kite Aerial Photography: Photo Gallery

Mt. Davidson
San Francisco, California

A view of Mt. Davidson taken from the height of the cross. The fog was just beginning to form at this point, 30 minutes later and we were socked in. (Canon 24-mm, June 1999)

After fog closed in on the top of Mt. Davidson, a fun thing to watch, we headed down the hill to a school on the leeward side of the hill. This was a pleasant little neighborhood park where we found a children's playground, tennis courts, and a baseball diamond. It offered a dandy launching spot and soon the kite was aloft in surprisingly clean air.

In the lefthand image a young brother and sister climb to the top of a spiral slide while two moms supervise  (Canon 24-mm, June 1999).

As in most of San Francisco, the neighborhoods around Mt. Davidson are densely populated. They have a good feeling to them nevertheless. I plan to return for more photographs.
