Alamo Square and the Victorian style 'Painted Ladies' are well known photo locations. So in order to make an image that would stand out, I had to wait for a stormy day where the clouds would open up right at sunset to produce warm light against the clouds and cityscape. A 1-minute exposure softened the sky and ensures that none of the people and dogs playing on the grass were visible.
