Letterman Digital Arts Center

Letterman Digital Arts Center


On Sunday, after doing an errand in San Francisco, D. and I spent some time wandering the grounds at the Letterman Digital and New Media Arts Center in the Presidio.  Here are some of the pics I took.


First we visit the Yoda Fountain.





Very realistic he looks.





Next we see a statue of Eadweard Muybridge, honoring his pioneering work in photographic studies of motion.





Here is a statue of Philo T. Farnsworth, inventor of television.





A look of intense concentration on his face.





The Palace of Fine Arts is visible beyond the grounds.





Mallards enjoy swimming in the duck pond.









Pigeons hang out nearby, hoping for crumbs of food.





What a handsome little duckie.





Duck yoga?





Arches with a maple leaf pattern cluster at one end of the pond.





Another look at the pond from the opposite side, with part of the Golden Gate Bridge somewhat visible in the background.





The original D.A.





The striking larva of a spotted tussock moth crawls around on a boulder near the pond.





The spines can sting, so look but don't touch!





The Great Seal on one of the piers at the Lombard Gate to the Presidio.
