The Palace of Fine Arts

Monday, January 31st, 2011

The goddesses atop the Palace of Fine Arts were built to watch over throngs of visitors at the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition. Today, they watch 20-somethings living their lives in the Marina.

Given my recent absence here, I am going to simplify things. Rather than post multiple photos at a time with detailed descriptions, I am going to move in the direction of some of my favorite photo blogs. I will post one photo at a time with the hope that I will post more regularly. Ideally, I would like to post one photo a day, but we’ll see.

Here’s to balancing blogging and working 40+ hours a week!!!

Secret Breakfast anyone? (it's an ice cream flavor with bourbon & cornflakes!)

Friends came into town and gave us an excuse to explore.

I wonder if the water that flows through this sink comes from below

What happens to pumpkins that don't turn into Jack-o-lanterns?

San Francisco’s Indian Summer

Sunday, October 17th, 2010

The past few weeks have brought the best weather yet here to the city. I’ve heard it referred to as the “Indian Summer” several times, and I am very happy for it. Finally, I walked out of the apartment without a jacket. Finally, I woke up to blue skies instead of fog. Finally, I broke a sweat hiking through the hills. Unfortunately, I think it is nearly over. So to commemorate our gorgeous days in the Bay, here are some photos in no particular order of sights I have seen.

Pumpkin Apple & Spice Muffin (and a new plate!)

Our sack lunch on the Coastal Trail just above Fort Cronkhite

Fog receding back to the ocean

After lunch

STOP because the road has literally fallen into the ocean.

The only good thing about the sun coming up later is that we occasionally see the sun rising above the city

The Lily Pond in Golden Gate Park is infested with carnivorous African Frogs, but we only saw a mis-thrown pigskin.

I find it hard to believe there is actually water under the green film of algae.

A jazz band plays near the tunnel across from the Conservatory of Flowers

The courtyard of Fort Point at the base of the Golden Gate Bridge

Patriotism flying beneath the Golden Gate

This little light of mine. It never got to shine.

One of many circular stairs within the Fort
