GG Bridge is lost in the smog, way in the backSmoke
in the air (not fog) due to the wild fires in California made it very difficult to get a clear view of the Golden Gate Bridge today, from this Nob Hill window (click on photograph to enlarge). We could really smell the smoke in San Francisco, today. Local media said to expect the same air quality throughout the week-end, at which time the wind will probably get around to start blowing all that off...
Meanwhile, predictions of yet higher gas prices sent the stock market
into a downward spiral again (358 points this time!)...
On the positive side, San Francico is again getting ready for fun-filled week-end with many LGBT
celebrations and events around the Bay Area. The Chronicle has devoted an entire site
to Pride-related events (including pictures of past Pride celebrations, various articles and links, and a calendar of events) and if you still can't find what you need, also check out Pride
or the calendar of events at sfgay.org

The main event this week-end, of course, is the SF Gay Pride Parade, scheduled to take place on Market Street, this Sunday 6/29 from 10:30 a.m. to approx. 1:00 p.m. After the parade, the celebration continues in front of City Hall, with a main stage, booths and events (you can usually pick up a map and event program on site). Expect a crowd, though!Donna Sachet and the KRON 4 Journalists, Pride '07
Those of you who cannot be in San Francisco this Sunday or would rather avoid the crowd will still be able to see the Parade online or on TV, on Sunday, June 29th:
* LIVE Broadcast, on Bay Area Comcast 99 (Digital) 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
* KRON 4 at www.KRON4.com, Live Webcast, and
* Clear Channel Radio on SFPrideLive.com Live & Uncensored Webcast
(from 10:00 a.m. to the end)
* Prime Time: KRON 4, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. (condensed version), and
* Comcast, On Demand starting at 7:00 p.m.Photograph of a couple getting married at SF City Hall, on 6/17/08
Because of the recent changes in California marriage law, we expect a larger crowd than usual this year in the City, so I thought I'd lend a hand and help out with the events, starting tommorrow night after work. That means that I'll probably be too busy running around to take and post pictures (or worse, I'll take pictures, then promise to post them but will never actually have the time to through them ...) So I'm counting on all of you, fellow local bloggers and amateur or professional photographers, to cover all the events this week-end, OK?
Remember, don't forget to bring water, sun protection, and a layer or two just in case the fog rolls in later on, but most importantly ... have fun!!!
