hey San Franciscans: how come we never see pictures looking down Fulton Street toward City Hall from Alamo Square? I'd think that would be a standard postcard view, but it was completely new to me when I stumbled on it in person.

There's a few more, but here's what I have shots of. I need to get more.

Texas State Capitol of course, as it sits atop its hill on Congress Avenue. The street continues around it and eventually turns into University Avenue, which itself terminates at the University of Texas Tower.

Same goes for Peachtree Center Ave. (BofA), Courtland St. (1180 Peachtree), and Piedmont Ave. (Colony Square).

I think Paris is the ultimate specialist in the art of perspective urbaine. from streets, parks, esplanades, stairs, avenues, and toward buildings, monuments or landmarks of all kind.
