Spent a nice relaxing Memorial Day weekend in the Presidio Area.

On Sunday, I had a chance to visit the Presidio National Cemetary and took a few photos. When you first enter the gate, you immediately see the huge U.S. flags along the side. Looking closer, every grave site was decorated with a minature U.S. Flag.

The next day, I headed towards the Lucas Letterman Digital Center. There, I had a chance to find a nice sunny spot at the park in front of the Letterman building. The landscape is gorgeous and it has just enough space for anyone to enjoy a small picnic, for playing some catch with the kids or just to read a book.

This was a first, but right after I finished this sketch (above) those same "still-life subjects" came by and a friendly art related converstation began. Come to find out, the one in green is a professional photographer, the one in blue (15 years in Graphic Design) designed his site, and the one in white used to play tennis professionally. Just super nice people that get together every weekend for a picnic and to catch up on things.
