Starr King Open Space


On Saturday D. had a photo shoot in San Francisco, and in the afternoon we spent a little while at Starr King Open Space in the Potrero to enjoy the views, and I took some pics there before it was time for us to leave for the Castro so D. could take his pics there.


A glimpse of Starr King Elementary School, across the street from the park.





The views from this hilltop open space are amazing: west to the Sutro Tower, northwest over the Mission toward Buena Vista Park, and north-northwest toward Mt. Tamalpais.









Autumn color.





A butterfly rests momentarily on the side of an equipment shed.





Someone has gone to great lengths to make this memorial out of a split log, whose message is now illegible.







A little Homer-Buddha contemplates the Universe on a platform on the hillside.





A rough-hewn bench catches the hazy afternoon light.





Overhead a ferruginous hawk (Buteo regalis) soars.





Two ravens chase a red-tailed hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) above the hillside.





Across the street we see a colorful ladybug mural on the side of the Potrero Hill Health Center.





Yellow daisies and walking iris.







A peek at the back of Starr King Elementary School, across the street from the park.





A Red Admiral (Vanessa atalanta) butterfly pauses on a rock to soak up some sunshine.





One last look southeast toward San Francisco Bay before we move on.
