Travel Photo of the Week – Week 16

Each week I’ll be showcasing one of my favorite photographs from my travels. Some are new, some are old. Some were taken on my phone (by necessity). Some are from Philadelphia, some from much farther than that… This week’s photograph was taken in San Francisco in 2018.

With the rainy fall weather, the park was relatively empty on a Sunday, but soon it will be filled with holiday shops, an ice skating rink, and more.
