The story behind the image

San Francisco in California is full of beautiful, almost magical, places. This photo, for example, shows Saints Peter and Paul Church at Washington Square. We stumbled upon this small, historic recreational park on our way to Coit Tower (which offers great views across the city.)

It was so peaceful, that we spontaneously looked for a bank for a short rest, enjoying the scene, the sunlight, and the (muted) noises of the large city.

By the way, the church is beautiful and well worth a visit, too. Read more about its history on the official homepage.
