  6. The asparagus must’ve escaped from the produce truck. And, judging by the dandelion pattern, are they being cultivated? 🙂

  13. Night Heron looks like a painting, i have not seen those textures in photography before. like the sensor in your camera made a watercolor or an oil. it is very beautiful. I enjoy your pictures. Thank you.

    • Thank you, Ann. I shot this one with my IPhone X — the result is quite painterly and I am not sure why. (I suspect it has something to do with zooming in) I’m so glad you enjoy my photos– much appreciated!

  22. I like the GG Lamp photo, Jane. Besides being near a dear to me, the difference between the light on the face of the tower and the edge is striking. From the saturation in the color, it looks like it was early morning or late afternoon, if you were on a bicycle on the west sidewalk.

  44. Wonderful photos. And when I was a kid, I actually did live in dread of being served a certain vegetable, those terrifying street stalkers, even though I love ’em now.
    Beautiful poppies, almost tangerine color – we won’t have poppies blooming at home in NY (corn poppy), until Memorial Day

    • Thanks so much, Robert.
      The poor asparagus…glad your palette grew to love them. I find the oddest things on the streets of SF. We had a pretty good spring for wildflowers considering how dry it was compared to last year’s super bloom. Glad you enjoyed this series.
