"Alamo Square" Alamo Square Tip by newsphotogirl
Alamo Square, San Francisco: 70 reviews and 117 photos
Everyone recognizes that row of well-maintained Victorians with the downtown skyline in the background. It's the quintessential San Francisco scene. Alamo Square is a great place for taking pictures. Tourists and locals walking their dogs, they're all here. If it's a sunny day, stop and have a picnic. Or you can try to guess which one of the Painted Ladies was home to the Tanners on "Full House" haha.
Here is a local secret. Make your way to the top of the park and look for a garden shed. What do you see? Look very closely and you will see a 'shoe garden'. Lots and lots of shoes of all description with flowers or grass growing in them. Count how many different shoes you can see.
This is from artist, Liz Hickok, who has a series of work called San Francisco in Jell-O.
