on Buchanan Street in Japantown, San Francisco, California

Ruth Asawa is a California artist whose work I like very much. She has several public art pieces available for viewing in San Francisco, and during the next few months I plan to photograph as many of them as I can.
This work features two bronze "lotus blossom" fountains and concrete bas-relief benches.
The shapes are lovely, with one lotus blossom depicted as being open and the other closed.
