I began writing about the art in direct response to a New York Times article titled City’s Art Is a Victim of Neglect, Damage and Loss. As an architectural photographer I realized that many people, due to the sights and sounds of the street itself, often miss the art and architecture of their own city This website is here to help you navigate the art and architecture of the world.
I believe to truly appreciate the buildings we gaze upon it helps to know their history, I hope that I bring enough knowledge to you about the various buildings, that you not only seek them out, but that you want to learn more.
San Francisco is an inherently easy city to walk. Whether you are a local or a visitor, when you walk, you will most likely trip across not only fabulous buildings but public art of some form. I have broken this blog down by neighborhood, so if you find yourself out walking and see a piece of art or a building that strikes your fancy, look it up, it should be here. If it isn’t send me a note, I will research it and do my best to get it up for everyone’s enjoyment. I spend my weekends walking this wonderful city and photographing what ever comes my way. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Throughout the site you will also find some very personal posts about my late husband Michael H. Casey. He had always called himself the unknown craftsman and for a very long time I had a website dedicated just to his work. Maintaining that site became difficult so I have simply combined them here. I hope that you enjoy those as well.
P.S. – Sometimes I leave San Francisco and go to visit others. When I do, I love seeing what they have to offer in the way of architecture and accessible public art. Hence, the tabs of other cities. If these are your cities, I hope I captured it well while I was there.
P.P.S. I am available for professional photography, architectural research and art research.
