Yerba Buena Gardens

I was in San Francisco for less than 24 hours last week to join my partner at a nursing conference. While there, I walked to the Yerba Buena Gardens area, just a block away, and took some photos.  I love this area - it has lots of child-friendly areas, like the playground, carousel, ice skating rink etc, plus some beautiful landscape design to it.  The waterfall area with the rocks and quotes is focused on the Civil Rights Movement, and includes a powerful quote from Martin Luther King, Jr. (quoting the prophet Amos in the Bible) about justice rolling down like waters.

Across the street from the gardens is the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), so I took a few photos as well, including capturing the museum's distinctive striped cone in green reflective glass from the garden area.
