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.
