Ayutthaya Ruins

Ayutthaya, capital of a kingdom within Siam, (now Thailand) founded in 1350, was a center of commerce for over 400 years.  In the 1600's, it was one of the richest cities in Asia and attracted traders from many countries.  The population reached a million people and the city had around 2,000 temples.  The capital was subjected to many invasions and finally destroyed by Burmese armies in 1767.  This slideshow, published May 22, 2012, features many of Ayutthaya's ruins.  It is a tourist destination and located 50 miles north of Bangkok.

Korea 1963

"Korea 1963 -- a Retrospective" is a slideshow trilogy featuring that part of the Republic of Korea ("ROK") -- commonly referred to as "South Korea" -- near the 38th Parallel Demilitarized Zone ("DMZ").  These photos were taken with a 35mm camera, digitized and enhanced for presentation here.  They are a look at South Korea's recovery ten years after the last shot was fired in 1953 during the Korean War.  This set of slideshows was first published by City Birds February 9, 2009.

Crissy Field

This slide show features the Crissy Field area of San Francisco.  Included are pictures of the field, old U.S. Army buildings, interior and exterior shots of Fort Point, and, of course, the Golden Gate Bridge.  Included is a Locator Map.  This slide show was first published by City Birds September 4, 2006.

De Young Museum

San Francisco has two fine arts museums.  Whereas the Legion of Honor, seen in Gallery Thirty-five, houses collections of antiquities and European art; the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park primarily displays American art of all periods.  Opened in 2006, the architecture of the de Young Museum stands in stark contrast to that of the Legion of Honor Museum. The de Young is certainly an interesting example of modern architecture.  A Locator Map is included.  This slide show was first published by City Birds September 4, 2006.

Warships and Planes

On May 28, 2012 we published a redux of U.S. Navy and Coast Guard planes and ships taken during past Fleet Week events in San Francisco.  The images are larger and we have added several pictures of the battleship USS Iowa (BB-61) as it left under tow for the Los Angeles area.  For many years the Iowa was part of the mothball fleet in San Francisco Bay.  Now refurbished, she will serve as a war history museum.  Enjoy our Fleet Week movie in the City Birds Videos section.
