"The Presidio" by Charity Vargas

Bay Area night photographer Charity Vargas has just released "The Presidio: Portraits of a Changing Landscape"; a 116-page hardcover "coffee table" book that includes 58 black-and-white photographs of the Presidio, many of which were taken at night. Most San Francisco locals know The Presidio as the park-like former Army base that has been passed down from the Spanish, to Mexico, to the U.S. You can read more about The Presidio on Wikipedia.

(The Bay School, by Charity Vargas)

Charity has the enviable advantage of actually living on the Presidio, which gives her the opportunity to see and photograph the site under all weather conditions and different times of year. Tim Baskerville has a lot more information about both Charity's new book, as well as the Presidio itself, on the Nocturnes Blog (he has actually seen Charity's book... I have not).
