We started out at the Legion of Honor with its gorgeous columns.
The Legion of Honor sits on top of a hill with views of the city, the ocean and the Golden Gate Bridge.
From there we drove to Golden Gate Park, where many scenes from the movie The Wedding Planner were shot.
I had fun playing with the rays of sun peering through the trees.
We passed on the Japanese Tea Garden - too busy - but stopped in front of a set of huge wooden doors to get these shots.
Next stop was the Palace of Fine Arts with even taller columns than the Legion. The light was beautiful.
We took advantage of the last minutes before sunset with a portrait on Baker Beach with the iconic Golden Gate Bridge in the background.
Then we took some less serious photos.
And we ended the day on a romantic note on the other side of the bridge.
Phuong left her heart in San Francisco, too. Not sure exactly how my camera captured it, but this "heart" was made by the sunset reflecting on my lens - no effects were added in Photoshop.
Thank you Joe for driving and Phuong for navigating down the one-ways and closed streets. We had a blast with you guys!
