Yesterday I went  to the SF-MOMA special exhibit of the photography of Richard Avedon.  What a fabulous way to spend the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

1) 3 good friends

2) A walk through Yerba Buena Garden memorial to Martin Luther King, Jr.

YB - MLK

“And we are determined…to work and fight until justice runs down like water, and righteousness like a mighty stream.”

3) The Richard Avedon exhibit itself.  3 of my favorites:

And a bonus:
In a display case, there was a book of Avedon’s portraits opened to a 2 page spread which I thought was rather prescient: Senator Obama on one page and Jimmy Carter on the other.
