Come To My Window

  1. The view from your windows are impressive. I know you said you’re not an early riser, but your ability to wake up before sunrise to have yourself and camera ready is impressive too. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    • Hi David, Thanks! It’s strange how I have changed into an early riser now. It can’t be age! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      • I don’t think it’s age, but I understand the older we become, we don’t need as much sleep … maybe 5-6 hours per night at most. There are certain days, I can go on as few as three hours, but that’s a holdover from my military days. There were times I had only 3-4 hours sleep in a 60 hour cycle. But, I was younger too. πŸ™‚

  2. Beautiful photos of the Golden Gate Bridge never get tired. Love the North Tower peeking out of the fog.

  3. So beautifully captured πŸπŸ’•πŸyou took the photos yourself?

  4. What a view! Funny, when I was a kid, San Francisco was my ‘dream city’. But then I got distracted by NYC as a teen and never looked back …until recently. San Francisco has been calling to me again as a place to drop anchor for a long while. And even more so with this post. We shall see if the winds blow us there.

    • Hi Lisa, Funny, I could have sworn I answered your nice comment. Well, NYC is a wonderful place to be. I grew up in NJ so it was a big part of my early life. I’m pleased this post inspired you to put it on your travel list– someday, wouldn’t it be great to sail under the Golden Gate into the San Francisco Bay. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts. πŸ™‚

  5. I’ve never really thought of fog rolling back in at sunset, especially without trashing the sunset. That’s a unique and dramatic shot.

  6. Beautiful scenes, Jane, and I particularly like Sunrise Lines, which is very well seen. πŸ™‚

  7. absolutely breathtaking!! love all of these 😍

  8. Reblogged this on The Reluctant Poet and commented:
    Come look out Jane’s Window

  9. All a bit intoxicating. The mystery and magic of San Francisco! Wonderful set.

  10. Hello North Tower and the tomato window for me!

  11. wow jane an interesting mix, i particularly notice the color selection of your photos and the b&w picture.
    best regards robert

  12. Fog certainly defines that bay. Nice captures, Jane.
    And Happy Mother’s Day to you!

  13. Amazing views you have, just beautiful, Jane!

  14. What a fun quote that opening one is! πŸ™‚ ‘Sunrise Lines’ really feels like SF to me – fantastic image! The curling fog in the first photo is wonderful too, and the tomatoes are charming, all lined up. ‘Full Moon at Sunrise’ is another favorite. The more minimal full moon and clouds and fog photos are great as well. But wait! You said you’ve been taking walks around the city, right? How about some of your odd, smashed, and found objects on the sidewalks? Any of those lately? And hey Jane, Happy mothers Day to you! One way or another….

    • Hi Lynn, Thank you. I always appreciate your thoughts. I love the more intimate moments among the buildings in the city. And you’re right, I haven’t done much in the found art subjects lately– it’s interesting that on our walks, I am focused on getting exercise and avoiding people, so stopping and photographing doesn’t fit in somehow. You’ve got me thinking. πŸ™‚

      • It IS interesting, about changing the way one focuses, different kinds of attention, etc. Life keeps throwing new situations at us, and we adapt and evolve, and the effects may or may not be evident right away. Maybe people are paying attention a little differently online, too. There does seem to be more posting going on. I don’t know how this all has changed my own photography but it probably has. Like you said, something to think about. πŸ™‚

  15. Love your tomatoes Jane, and you closing image is beautiful. An ode to your muse.

  16. Great px from a well placed window.

  17. Love all these beautiful photos, but the ones of the bridge make my heart flutter. Our brief time in San Francisco allowed me to see it but not in the fog and light that you have photographed. So gorgeous!

  18. Sunrise on the lines πŸ’«

  19. These are great, Jane. I know that view!

  20. Beautiful collection, Jane! So many ways for the bridge to get dressed up, I can see you’d want to be looking at that all the time. I particularly like Tomatoes as an intimate look at the city, too.

  21. All just wonderful Jane. Fog at sunset is stunning!!

  22. Beautiful image Jane πŸ™‚

  23. Lovely set of photos, Jane! Loving the ‘Fog at Sunset’. So ethereal, so magical!

  24. I’m glad to have your windows to look out of Jane! Love the Sunrise On Lines shot.

  25. these are literally breathtaking!!

  26. Looking at these I can think of worse places to disappear to, Jane. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Wishing you a happy Sunday!

  27. Amazing series from beautiful to dramatic.

  28. Especially the window view with tomatoes, draw my attention, Jane.

  29. These pictures make me want to be able to fly, open the window and scoot off, jubilating to the young sun. I find the colours of Fog at sunset amazing and the image of the tomatoes I find fabulous.

    • Thanks, Peter! I love the image of flying away…something I think we all want to do right now. Looking for those interesting photographic moments inside and out– glad you like the tomatoes which was a moment of “seeing” early one morning.

  30. It was fun and very enjoyable to look out the windows you provided in today’s post, Jane. I like the Golden Gate Bridge all shrouded in fog.

  31. I’m with Alan on this one, plus those are some great photos.

  32. The sun coming through the fog is dramatic.

  33. Wonderful shot, Jane. Nice work.

  34. β€œThe Golden Gate Bridge’s daily strip tease from enveloping stoles of mist to full frontal glory is still the most provocative show in town.” SUCH a great twist for a title to go with superb images. Striptease in San Fran. Oscar Wilde would be proud. I certainly am

  35. Maybe one day I’ll disappear and turn up in San Francisco! Wouldn’t it be great if it worked like that….in the mean time, I get to enjoy your fabulous images. Thank you.

Love to hear what you think...
