Outlined Embarcadero (December 20)


Glorious Evening (December 20)

 If you knew how many such photos I took, you would be concerned for my disk space!

Cupid Rests (December 19)


Diego (December 17)

Biggest shoutout to the curators for using yellow ochre for some of the walls in the Diego Rivera exhibit.  It is an underrated color.

Lagoon (December 15)


Mission Creek Night Reflections (December 13)


Sunset sky with teal (December 13)

 New colors (and you should have seen all the lavenders that arrived earlier!)

Art, Fireboats, Bridge (December 12)

 I love this town!

Bow lights (December 12)


Cutest Old Firehouse (December 12)

 The cuteness also extends to the fireboats attached to the new, floating station!

Waterfront near Hills Bros Coffee (December 12)

 It's cold, but it feels festive!

Morning storm clouds with skyscrapers (December 6)

 The golds feel so 1920s to me...

Tropically flavored SF Bay Sunset (December 1)

 The COLORS!!!!!

First new subway in 40 years (November 28th-ish)


Insert Park Name Here (November 24)

 This is the third or fourth name, and I'm just happy for the neon company.

Fire extinguisher (whale tail) (November 24)

I used this photo I took to search the internet for information on why it has this cool shape, and was rewarded with rather terrifying images of experimental aircraft. 

Pier warehouse light (November 24)

 Warm glow, unexpected place.

Grandiose post-sunset sky (November 17)

 It gets better after sunset, nearly always, if there are clouds that can be lit from beneath!

Evening ship lights (November 16)


Tower Says VOTE (November 8)


November 2, Morning


San Francisco Skyline (October 28)


Sunrise cloud waves (October 18)


Orange sunrise flames (October 18)


Archi-textures (October 14, filter play)


Dusk collection (October 12)

 Subtle colors after sunset.

Layers of gold (September 21)

 I am always impressed by sunrise colors like this...

Bay Morning with Clouds (September 15)

 My favorite bridge looks great in all weather.

Bird Wing Simulation (September 10)

Packing the closet, admiring the play of light on the pleated organza. 

Mothers (September 9, filter play)

 Yes, I do have motherboards in storage just for art purposes.  Yes, it is difficult to deal with me.

Digital wall (September 9, filter play)


Excellent, woven, 3D texture!

Intermission Explanation

Hello!  *wave* From the end of August through early December, I had to relocate my home, and... that was a distraction! My move managed to interrupt this weblog, which had been so reliable until that point!

I'll add some of my September through present favorites, so you know that I was still appreciating the beauty of day to day life, even while staying close to home.

Eastern Span

I somehow still haven't walked on this bridge, likely because you can only walk to Treasure Island and back on it, rather than from SF all the way across...

President Wilson (the ship)

 I don't often travel from Jack London Square, but when I do, I take too many photos of ships!

USNS John Glenn

 This exotic ship can partly submerge to launch hovercraft from its low deck.  It's... amazing.

(Read more at the USNS John Glenn Wikipedia Page.)

Three Horses

 AT-AT inspiration!

Peace Mural, Oakland

 The Embrace by Alison "Hueman" Torneros, in the Jack London Square area.

Wandering through town with Instax Square film (21 August)

 I enjoyed myself!

Glowing green (21 August)

 I would have preferred an artificial blue, but no one asked me. :) 

Pier Vacancy (21 August)

Such a hip space, in this Port of SF pier building...  The bar here must have closed during the pandemic, and hasn't yet returned or been replaced.  Vacancies are so... new, conceptually.

Pandora's Boxes (Private Apartments) (21 August)

 I like this building too much.

Hollywood Spanish (Mission High) (21 August)

Yes, I'm leaving more space for text in my photos (in the skies).  No, that doesn't mean I'll ever finish those projects..

Edison (21 August)

 I like the fact that our grandest neighborhood buildings are schools.

Affection blossoming (20 August)

The tallest cloud (17 August)


Busy sky (17 August)

 You already know what I'm like about clouds.

East Bay Rays (17 August)


Wednesday morning's stormy sky (17 August)

 How amazing is that for AUGUST!  (Places where it actually rains have no idea what I mean, but we drought-stricken folks are amazed.)

Greetings from the little leopard

 It has been such a long time since she visited me...  She is beyond friendly, and I got away without getting scratched, which is always a gamble with her (and the other feral neighborhood cat).

Instax Square walk

While I spent some time planning for work on Saturday, I forced myself to leave the house and have some photographic fun today.  I had a false start (my camera batteries had died, and I was hungry for lunch when I realized it), but I eventually made it out and managed to get 17k steps in, despite the heat.

(I have no idea why 2 of 3 images of a graffiti wall on Market Street came out pale: the lighting condition was the same as the photo that came out fine. Perhaps I got sunlight in the lens when it was setting exposure?)

The presence of absence

There is a series of these sculptures in Trinity Plaza, and I find them quite clever!  These are by Lawrence Argent, who passed away prior to the pandemic.
