Old friend

I’m running out of commute energy! The vacation is looming (more on that soon) and my head is starting to rebel. I want to see NEW stuff! For solace I drifted off track to a known view of my old friend, the Golden Gate Bridge. I figure I’ve crossed the bridge well over 5000 time over the past 11 1/2 years. This is what it looked like today from a Lincoln Blvd turnout at about 3:30 PM:

Chartreuse in the city

Heading home today I turned up Fulton Street and headed toward Stanyan. I parked a couple of blocks down from St. Ignatius figuring on some of preconceived shots. While walking down Stanyan, I looked up a narrow alley and saw the St. Ignatius cupola and CHARTREUSE!

Of course I had to see the house so I headed a block down to McAllister… Magnifique!

And here’s a perspective (neighborhood) shot:
