My World #74:

24 May

Many of you know or have noticed that I love drive by shots.  I love it so much that I think nearly half of what I have in my archives is drive by.  Lately, inspired by the newest meme that I am participating in WINDOW VIEWS AND DOORS TOO hosted by Teach Mary and by a Flickr contact of mine that features many many many shots of houses in San Fran, I thought I’d devote a huge portion of my drive by shots to houses/homes/doors/windows.  And here’s one that’s been sitting on  my archives for a couple of years. 

Taken at the corner of 8th and Washington St. in Oakland is Kai Japanese Restaurant.  I haven’t been in this restaurant. I liked its facade though.

I will not be able to visit as much this time around. I will be away from my computer for a couple of days.  Have a good week every body.

    I have a long way to go with drive by shooting, but yours are fantastic and I do love this one! San Francisco has so many interesting aspects, I could spend days there just wandering around there! Your photos are the next best thing! Have a great week!

      For every one good shot, I have 4-5 blurry ones :D. But that’s how it is with drive-bys.

    I love the old buildings and the bay area has to have some of the most beautiful. Thanks for sharing this beautiful part of our world.

    I am a huge fan of the drive-by photo and love seeing those of fellow bloggers as well as taking my own and like you, so many of the shots in my archive are drive-bys. This is a great shot and I can see just why you liked it.
