Challenge: Misunderstanding (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-350D Rebel XT
Lens: Sigma 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Compact Aspherical Hyperzoom for Sigma
Location: dare I say San Francisco
Date: Feb 17, 2008
Aperture: 6.3
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/320
Galleries: Urban, Architecture
Date Uploaded: Feb 17, 2008

Converted from RAW, cropped, rotated slightly, extra sharpening on the pole and fire hydrant, sharpened the whole thing. That's all, folks!

This has a funny (peculiar) story: Seems the Planning Code once said each apartment must have its own parking space/garage on the property.

But, alas, it didn't say it had to be useable.

I use this intersection a lot, and for many years I have been amused every time at the ability of someone who will go to such lengths to work around the edges of the rules.

very well seen-must crack you up and/or make you shake your head everytime you see this example of bureaucratic "intelligence"... -OR- the owner of that space is trying to save the planet and rides a bike instead! :)

Another case of "the man" getting in the way of people. It would be my luck that this would be where I was expected to park my car.

Not a good situation. Hopefully it wasn't advertised as a two car flat.

This is too funny. I wish the numbers were not there as they distract from the idea here
