San Francisco-The most eco-friendly city


                         Sculpture of the lady, San Francisco

Last week I had a chance to visit to San Francisco city. Although the temperature was a bit low but still I had encountered a moderately sunny day. The city has always something new for me even sometimes the same old Albert S Samuels Clock build in 1915. This land mark on Market St. looks like a new discovery for me, even though I have been seeing that clock as a land mark, twenty times. I called it San Francisco vibe. This time I noticed a brand new landmark, A huge sculpture of a lady had been installed up at Linden. The art had been made using recycled iron rod, chain and wire. It was quite an experience, watching such a huge art work that was so perfectly made. My every visit brings me joy or something new to think about. The old houses with astonishing  colors, the Art and architecture.... amazing.

Being the most eco-friendly city in the world, no wonder its been the most green city, dominated by the nature. The city has abundant opportunity for artists, art lovers and someone like me, who appreciate everything, surprises at its every corner. Most of all every kind of Arts and architectures feels at home here. I too feel comfortable here, so it's a indication of me being artist at my heart. who knows some day I might would be a Sculpture artist, may be at my old age.

                                   Ocean Beach, San Francisco

After around four miles west in Geary blvd. there is a  beautiful beach called Ocean Beach. This particular beach attracts many surfers, because of its strong current. I had my lunch there while enjoying the sky and the sea without anything in between.

My eyes captured many historical as well as newly constructed  churches in the city. I found the architecture were amazing and so as the art and design ware eye catching. I am planning another new post about those churches in San Francisco.

                                              Trolley Bus
Spider wave like electrical wire, up above the head, used for Trolley buses in San Francisco. The city itself has largest no. of Trolley buses. These buses are entirely pollution free and quieter. I noticed many more two wheelers, as a comfortable medium for transportation.



San Francisco city people prefers to walk a lot, love to use alternate energy source and  serious about recycling/reuse . The city contains largest city-owned  solar insulation in entire US/Canada. All of the local peoples contribution and tourist understanding made it one of the most greenest and eco-friendly city in the US.

You have helped me recall some fond memories of San Francisco with this most intersting posting.
As a wide-eyed eighteen year old; I drove my first ever car from Vancouver, Canada to that wonderful city by the bay.
Thanks for this. With respect, Gary.
