Palm Frond, Conservatory of Flowers, Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, photo by John Ecker | pantheon photography

CONSERVATORY OF FLOWERS, GOLDEN  GATE PARK, SAN FRANCISCO:   I like to find and photograph interesting patterns. This palm frond (I think it’s a palm frond) was in the conservatory when I visited there.  I thought the natural light made for a stunning shot.  The conservatory is one of the top features in Golden Gate Park.  It’s been classified as a national and state historic landmark.  Little wonder.  It was opened in 1879 and is made of wood and glass— the oldest of its kind in the Western Hemisphere.  It’s a living museum, home to about 1700 species from more than 50 countries.  The Conservatory is definitely worth a visit when you are in San Francisco.
