Silhouettes of cranes decorate this wall (hidden behind the trees) in a hip tribute to the nearby port.

We don't have redbuds in this area as native plants, so it was confusing to encounter this one (and a few of its friends) in Mission Bay. I searched for "tree with sweet pea flowers" and it came up right away - it was a good call, they are in the same family.
This stairwell faces Howard street, and I don't think I've posted any photos before - the fountain is always the focus of shared photos (and postcards) of Yerba Buena Gardens. But it deserves some appreciation - it's a nice spot!
I am fully vaccinated, and took my first trip to a museum since March (or late February?) 2020, and was DELIGHTED - beyond delighted - to see a favorite Studio Olafur Eliasson piece in the SFMoMA atrium bridge! With capacity limits still in effect, I didn't need to wait long to take my turn to walk through the piece, which is different in each direction, thanks to the careful design and arrangement of facets that are either dark or colorful.

Between working in San Mateo County and then the pandemic, my wandering in SF has been quite constrained, and so many murals are a great surprise to me.
This one is by Eli Lippert and Monica Magtoto (you can see Eli's close up photos of this one at elilippert.com - I learned that Eli also worked on the Brighton Manor murals, near me). It's from 2019.
