Haight-Ashbury--Still a Feast for the Eyes
San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury is one of San Francisco's most colorful and popular tourist attraction neighborhoods. It offers a feast for a street photographer, everything from stores dating from the 1960s, colorful Victorian "painted lady houses," and a variety of "street people" lounging on the sidewalks especially on Sunday mornings. Here are some pictures I took on a Sunday morning not long ago.

The area still maintains its bohemian ambiance, though the effects of gentrification are also apparent and continually changing. The neighborhood remains a thriving center of independent local businesses.
