This is another image I got today. This huge building in the Presidio has been refurbished, but looks to be almost totally vacant. There’s one car in the parking area in front and zero cars (except mine) in the adjacent lots. Kind of surreal on a Wednesday at 3ish in the afternoon.
Canon G11 pondering the scene.
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:

I am SO ready for my vacation! How about getting on the ferry at 4:40 AM and then disappearing for a month? It’s getting close, though it won’t be on a ferry. Here’s the Larkspur Ferry terminal from the almost empty parking lot in the wee hours:

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:

Weekend post, so out comes an older photo (taken in early August). “Too much fog” has a double meaning in this shot of houses in Presidio Heights in San Francisco. There’s too much fog in the image and there was too much fog in the city this summer. So there you go, photographic irony. 😉
Canon G11 liking the results.
