San Francisco Holidays



Before leaving the City for the Thanksgiving holiday, I noticed that San Francisco was undergoing its annual transformation in preparation for Christmas.

I almost can't wait to see everything all decorated again.

By the way, would you like to meet my out-of-town visitor?

Coming down the hill



I'm sorry I've been away from the blogs for a while. It's been very hard to find the time to do blog posts and visit blogs lately because I've been spending (almost) all my free time showing a visitor from out-of-town around my beloved City by the Bay.

On the plus side, though, this has given me the opportunity to walk around the City and stock up on new photos, which will end up on the blog eventually. ;)

This was us barreling down California Street in a Cable Car, the day we met up with Mme. Benault and Katiefornia.

Would you like a better look at the Cable Car? or the visitor, maybe? a little of both? I'm sure this could be arranged. ;)

Here is the cable car (not my best shot I know, but it's a cable car)



and here is the hill... you do the math!

Aerial photographer Robert Cameron dies



When I saw the headline "Aerial photographer Robert Cameron dies" this morning on the first page of the Chronicle, I couldn't resist reposting this picture to share it with you guys.

I bought Robert Cameron "Above San Francisco" book once for myself a long time ago, really loved all the pictures inside and ended up buying a few more over the years to give to people in France as San Francisco souvenirs.

Mr. Cameron was 98 years old and still taking pictures of our beloved city from a helicopter.

Halloween in my neighborhood



While some of the local bloggers decided to get together and do a Halloween photoshoot in the City, I elected to stay home instead and go to bed early so I could be in shape for my annual garage sale.



But when I woke up very early the following day, although the neighborhood was still completely fogged in, still asleep, I noticed that the spiders had been having a Halloween party of their own...



Can you see the little drops of water on the spider web below the no parking sign? (click to enlarge pictures)

Meanwhile, in the Castro ...

What did you all do for Halloween? Did you dress up and go out? Stay home and wait for the neighborhood kids? Or ... How many of you turned the lights off and pretended not to be home? ;)
