  10. Beautiful photos!:D
    Beautiful city! πŸ˜€

  11. Wow- these images are beautiful Jane! This definitely adds SF to my bucket list when I’m able to travel again! πŸ’š

  12. Hi, there. We wanted to confirm that we have your permission to include you in our feature (mentioned on 6/9) on traveling as it comes out in the next day or so.

  13. Love it. But then I am biased: I just love San Francisco. Can’t wait to find a pretext to go back.
    Take care.

  14. Ahhhhh the bridge! The cool weather. Those houses on the hill. Chinatown. Missing that city. Thanks for the reminder.

  15. We enjoyed your wit and your virtual tour. We would like to feature you in our upcoming issue of β€œThis Just In… Travelers Inc.”

  16. Wow San Fran looks beautiful 😍 hopefully we will get to visit one day.

  17. The picture of Grant Street is gorgeous! Great photos!

  18. Nice set. I particularly like the VW shot. Maybe a little serendipity, having an old hippy car of just the right color putter through your landscape?

    • Hi Dave, Thank you! I couldn’t believe my luck when she drove up in that great car with its color and surfboard. Funny, someone in SF recognized it and I tried to get in touch with the owner to send the shot to her, but had no response. Too bad. Glad you enjoyed this series. πŸ™‚

  19. I love the rainy day shot, and the beat-up old VW, so embematic of California livin’. A lovely collection, Jane!

    • Thanks, Lynn. Those shots are especially fond photographic memories. I’m sure you know the feeling when something just “clicks”… πŸ™‚ Hope you’re doing well.

      • Sometimes the good memory shots aren’t up to “I’ll post that” standards so it’s nice when everything converges. We’re fine…the county has been in Phase 2 for only a few days…great to see people sitting at tables inside a coffee shop today. I felt like it was halfway to normal. πŸ™‚

  20. article see the different perspective

  21. Beatiful photo I make wait different photo

  22. Reblogged this on The Reluctant Poet and commented:

  25. Oh Jane I do love your photography. The rainy day one is an absolute gem.

  26. Excellent photo essay and images! I like how you mixed it up with ‘California Living’ and ‘City Hall Pride’.

  27. All excellent images but my favorite is the VW Beetle with the surfboard Jane. I was never into surfing but I had a couple of VW Bugs in my day πŸ™‚ The image brought back great memories.

  28. Love the atmosphere you have captured in “Rainy Day, Grant Street”

  29. Thanks for the fascinating photo essay, Jane!

  30. Beautiful, Jane. Many thanks for reposting one of my faves, “Rainy Day, Grant Street”. It’s the Shiseido sign. My wife, ex-wife and the daughters are all Shiseido consumers. πŸ™‚

    Hope you and the family are safe.

    • Thanks, David. Glad you enjoyed the recap …you have a great eye for detail noticing that sign. πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸ» We are doing ok under the sad circumstances. Hope you are, too.
