Clouds over the Conor Pass

Clouds over the Conor Pass I’m loath to post photos from the same location day after day but I may as well call this “Conor Pass Week” and get the rest of them out of the dark where they’ve languished since 2006. After the reaction to yesterday’s Conor Pass photo hopefully you’ll like this one […]

The City of San Francisco

Cupid’s Arrow and the birds

Many faces in the crowd

Many faces in the crowd A crowd of Alcatraz sightseers prepares to disembark from the ferry back at San Francisco. From the expressions on a few faces I think they were wondering what that guy was doing with his camera held in the air! I love the patterns in the roof and the contrast with […]

San Francisco DPT on the job

San Francisco DPT on the job The San Francisco Department of Parking and Traffic (DPT) have painted the kerb of the sidewalk in the city to designate different parking areas in the city.
