Cemeteries, At The Presidio, San Francisco, California

The intact or cremated remains of people may be interred in a grave, commonly referred to as burial, or in a tomb, an "above-ground grave" (resembling a sarcophagus), a mausoleum, columbarium, niche, or other edifice. In Western cultures, funeral ceremonies are often observed in cemeteries. These ceremonies or rites of passage differ according to cultural practices and religious beliefs. Modern cemeteries often include crematoria, and some grounds previously used for both, continue as crematoria as a principal use long after the interment areas have been filled.[from wikipedia]

Harmed Trees, Found On The Presidio, San Francisco, California

n botany, a tree is a perennial plant with an elongated stem, or trunk, supporting branches and leaves in most species. In some usages, the definition of a tree may be narrower, including only woody plants with secondary growth, plants that are usable as lumber or plants above a specified height. In wider definitions, the taller palms, tree ferns, bananas, and bamboos are also trees. Trees are not a taxonomic group but include a variety of plant species that have independently evolved a trunk and branches as a way to tower above other plants to compete for sunlight.[from wikipedia]

Julius Kahn Playground --known as simply "JK" to its regulars-- is a much beloved part of the community. It's where toddlers get their kicks on slides, swings, and sand while school-aged kids work their motor skills on the climbing and spinning structures. Often, as their tots are busy playing, adults take the opportunity to soak in the spectacular view, which on a clear day stretches north to the Golden Gate Bridge and beyond to the Marin Headlands.[from wikipedia]
