I am currently staying in the Inner Sunset District of San Francisco, two blocks & around the corner from the offices of Craigslist
People in San Francisco are very environmentally-conscious, and insist upon placing their garbage somewhere in the vicinity of designated trash receptacles.
Today was the first Tuesday of the month, which meant it was free day at the De Young Museum in Golden Gate Park. Free, that is, except for the featured exhibit, in this case glasswork by some artist named Chihuly (who I've never heard of. so I'm a Philistine...). In this case, I was on the viewing platform on the top of the tower, when a woman realized she had an urgent appointment and was unable to use her ticket to the featured exhibit, so she gave it to me (pictures are on the way).
Here is a picture of the new De Young Museum:
Apparently the tower was designed to suggest a Mayan pyramid. Careful what time you head up to the tower: I understand they arbitrarily select a visiter from the crowd for Human Sacrifice. Probably just people without tickets-- I was probably safe after I got the ticket.
I also have another new album that I'm working on, which is comprised of photos from various places around San Francisco. Keep tuning in-- I'll be adding more as I go.
Oh Lord, lead me not into huge repositories of Monty Python videos. I may never emerge alive again!
(I also watched the entire "Cheese Shop" sketch. It reminds me of the time I went into a Starbucks, South of Market in San Francisco, and after waiting patiently in line-- while people ordered their double-decaf, no-fat-soy-milk-amaretto Frappianomachichino-whatchamacallits-- and finally ordered my small (In Starbuckian parlance: Tall) coffee-- whereupon I was told-- and I quote-- "we don't have any coffee today." (the coffeemaker was out of service))
Just one example of the FINE ARTISTRY you'll find on this page:
I'll be adding more as I get around to resizing things. Stay tuned for more adventures!
An abandoned factory in Petaluma:
and an eclipse...
So, after taking a couple of laps around the convention center floor, I left and took a stroll out back in Yerba Buena Gardens, snapping pictures. Some results can be viewed here...
