scenicsf Book of the Week: Scenic San Francisco

Full disclosure here: Blurb headquarters is in San Francisco so we’re partial to the city, but that said, it takes a lot to turn our heads when it comes to local photography. Alejandro Velarde did just that with his Blurb book, Scenic San Francisco.

Starting with the cover shot of the Golden Gate Bridge (great reflections, Alejandro!) and right up to the stunning two-page spread of the Bay Bridge at night (hey, we didn’t even notice the traffic.), this book will have you longing to spend some quality time in the City by the Bay. Sure, it has the requisite fog shots and what would an SF book be without a picture of Coit Tower, but Alejandro’s perspective is fresh and his photography nearly sparkles with richly saturated tones and crisp precision.

Alejandro, a relatively recent San Francisco resident, originally hails from Peru. We’re hoping he’ll make a Blurb book about his hometown since he did such a beautiful job showcasing ours. How about it, Alejandro? We’d love to see it.

  1. Thank you very much Blurb staff for choosing my book as Book of the Week and thank you Eileen for your kind words.

    I’ve been living in San Francisco for almost 10 years now and I consider it my second home. It took me many sunrises and nights to be able to put together a compilation of photographs that can depict, in a unique way, this picturesque city.

    I am originally from Peru, in deed, and I am already working on putting together a collection of photographs that show the beautiful landscapes found across Peru. Having said that and while I work on this long term project, I am hoping to surprise you with a different book in the next coming months.

    Thank you,

  2. Congratulations Alejandro – I don’t buy many books from other photographers, but I bought this one. You have many unique perspectives of familiar landmarks and each is captured beautifully.
