At Sarah’s mother’s suggestion, Sarah & I checked out this fantastic free exhibit of 56 of Robert Cameron’s aerial photographs. Some are printed extremely large (8×10 feet), and all are very interesting.
Cameron, publisher of a number of books, (all titled “Above San Francisco” “Above Paris” and so on) has made some spectacular photographs over his lengthy career (he’s now in his mid-90s), and he selected these 56 to showcase the western US, both in its beauty and its flaws. A nice pamphlet guides the viewer through each photograph, although the writing style is a bit strange, with very short sentences that often don’t flow very well. C’est la vie, it’s a photography exhibit, not a literary review!
The Presidio Officer’s Club, like most things in the SF Presidio, isn’t particularly easy to find, but I’d highly recommend checking out this exhibit while it’s still here – the price (free) is certainly right, and its a great perspective.
