Spotted: Bag pipes on 24th Avenue

Photo by @ms_emmalyon

Reader Amanda (@ms_emmalyon) spotted something unusual from her window around 10am on Monday morning – a kilted piper.

“He was very good!” she said. Maybe he was heralding the end of the rain? Or trying to call it back again?

Unfortunately his real reason for being there was more somber. Reader David H. tells us, “Sadly, he was warming up to play for a firefighter’s memorial service at the church on Geary.”

Video: “Through Our Eyes” Richmond District photo project

Late last year, we told you about a photo project that took place at the Richmond District branch library called “Through Our Eyes: Visual Stories of the Richmond Neighborhood”.

The workshop was led by photojournalist Frederic Larson, who worked at the San Francisco Chronicle for thirty years, where he covered all types of assignments – from fires to football, earthquakes to celebrities.

Larson invited amateur photographers to come out and capture a visual snapshot of the Richmond District neighborhood by covering 18 square blocks in and around the library.

The video above highlights the project and its participants, which resulted in not only interesting photographs, but also some insights into the residents and our variety of cultures.

Librarian Dorothy Kimmel, who spearheaded the project, tells us some of the photos can be seen on the branch Facebook page, and that “in the near future I will post a slide show and two photo stories.”

Blog reader Jan sent us these photos of a coyote that was photographed by her daughter, Laura, in the Presidio last Friday morning.

She spotted the coyote just southwest of the cemetery, saying he was “large and impressive-looking”.

Neighborhood photos on exhibit at Richmond Library, Wednesday night

Photojournalist Frederic Larson recently held a series of photography workshops at the Richmond District branch library, inviting amateurs to come sharpen their skills while creating a visual snapshot of life in the neighborhood.

The results will be on display this Wednesday night at the library as Through Our Eyes: Visual Stories of the Richmond Neighborhood.

At the event, Larson will present some of the stories and a video documenting the students’ “neighborhood shoot” on a Saturday in November.

The free event runs from 6:30pm until 8:30pm in the Richmond District branch Library’s meeting room, 351 9th Avenue. Refreshments will be provided.
