Photographer's Note

One day while walking near the Palace Of Fine Arts, a couple asked me to take a photo of them, and we struck out a conversation. They had lived in the city for years and had never gone to the Palace Of Fine Arts. As we spoke about the different interesting places, they were shocked to find out there were Bison in Golden Gate Park. Since that conversation a few weeks ago I have been meaning to photograph these creatures.

Here they are. BISON in San Francisco .
The history of BISON in San Francisco . in the park dates back to the end of the 19th century. “One herd or another has been in the park since 1890, when concerned naturalists transported the then-endangered originals, a girl bison, or cow, named Madame Sarah Bernhardt, and a bull called Ben Harrison, from the plains of Wyoming and Kansas, and installed them there for their own safe keeping.” Driving down John F. Kennedy Drive, which crosses the park this little herd is there on a paddock on the side of the road, right before Queen Wilhelmina, the windmill.

Photo was cropped adjusted using brightness contrast and curves. The photo was rather large so I decrease size incrementally and sharpnend slightly at each step. But th quality after the resizing isn't good.
