Trip to San Francisco Part II

These next two sketches I did on top of the mechanical penthouse on top of the roof of the Buckelew House. Here in my Eagle's nest I sketched out the Coit Tower early one morning and then that evening I did a sketch of the Transamerica Building.

One of the day's we were there we visited the San Francisco Zoo- at lunch I had a little time to myself while the kids were digesting their lunch by running around trying to catch pigeons. I sat down at a bench and captured these flamingos sunbathing themselves.

At the end of the day Jenny, Joshua and Ariana went to get some souvenirs in the gift shop while I stayed outside and watched Miriama as she was sleeping in her stroller. I was inspired by the beautiful acacia trees that were all over the park. The new African Safari exhibit was absolutely beautiful- watching the giraffes eat the leafs of the acacia tree is a memory I won't forget. I tried to capture the beauty of this giant umbrella.

so this might be a bit random, but I am looking to get an acacia tree tattoo to remind me of the summers that I spent in Africa. When I was searching the internet for inspiration I ran across your sketches. I love your acacia tree and would love to talk to you about sketching one for me...would that be something you would be interested in? you can email me at amusbobamus@gmail.com if you are interested. thanks!
