Chinatown in San Francisco – A town inside a town

I took above picture of the Dragon Gate in Grand Avenue at the entrance of Chinatown in San Francisco, multiple exposure brackets for HDR output. The gateway architecture and design is the only authentic gateway in North America built on the same Chinese standards. Chinatown is so big and authentic in a way you feel you are in another city within SF. I liked the way they wrote the names of streets and shops in English and China. I took below shoots for the street signs for Clay and Sacramento streets.

I took HDR photos for Grand Avenue street and the Citibank building. I loved how they make all buildings look authentic and reflect the Chinese culture.
