This weekend’s “Supermoon” takes place thanks to a fluke of orbital mechanics that brings the moon closer to Earth than that it has been in more than 18 years. At its peak, the Supermoon of March 19, 2011 may appear 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than a normal full moon.
Mistaking the night before’s bright moon for the Supermoon, I walked my tripod up and down the street I live on in San Francisco pointing it up at the sky while brightly lit white clouds floated past a deep blue sky. I guess I didn’t think about how it might appear to my neighbors: a stranger taking photos of houses with a tripod on their quiet street in the dark.
So if any of my fellow residents of Delmar Street are reading this, these are the results of that random guy taking photographs of your house.
Delmar is the quiet and friendly tree-lined street in the Upper Haight neighborhood of San Francisco that I call home.
Delmar Street is located just a block off of the historic and touristic intersection of Haight and Ashbury and a few blocks from the more upscale and tranquil Cole Valley.
Delmar Street exists for just two blocks in the entire city.
