Stuff we have seen on short walks around the neighborhood in the San Francisco Bay Area where I grew up and where we are celebrating late Christmas…

Well, yeah, we saw San Francisco, over across the bay. A red-tailed hawk. The moon. Some yard art. A cool art house that has been like that for years. The lady who lives there is as interesting as her house … Continue reading

The very last photos from my recent adventure in the San Francisco Bay Area…

Like the journey itself, the photos must come to an end sometime. Hopefully, I will make it back there for Christmas… one way or another. The city was shy most of that week. I still don’t know how much of … Continue reading

The last sunset…

These are the last of the photos I took on my last night on my recent trip to the Bay Area. I guess I have one more post worth of pictures of San Francisco, as seen from across the Bay. … Continue reading

Well, these are almost the last of the photos from my recent adventure to the Bay Area…

I will have a post or two of the sunset photos I took from the Berkeley Hills, of the sun setting over San Francisco. And some pictures of the city itself. I don’t know what those are called. Cat Tails? … Continue reading

You know, there is a reason they call it the ‘Golden’ Gate bridge…

And it has nothing to do with that gold rush thing. So of course while I was visiting my mom in the Bay Area, I went up into the Berkeley Hills to get some sunset pictures for you. Wrong time … Continue reading

Some perks of driving 500 miles in a motor home to visit my 97-year-old mother at the house in the Bay Area where I grew up, in a socially-distant, responsible manner… I mean the visit, not me when I was growing up, I was perhaps socially-distant, but no way was I ever responsible…

So I borrowed my mother-in-law’s motor home to visit my mom. Is that weird? Also, is it weird that for a 60-year-old guy my legs are still so sexy? First perk; Dew-speckled roses in the morning. Sorry, I know you … Continue reading

That was a really long drive in a motor home just to see some birds and flowers…

Wait, what? That is just plain rude! Simmer down, I was just kidding. I get to see my mom and another of my brothers, and the Bay Area, and maybe some old friends… but I did have to drive through … Continue reading

My mom’s garden: Dew-kissed roses in the morning…

No, that dew isn’t fake dew from my spray mister-bottle! I took these in my mom’s backyard, in the Bay Area, where I am staying for a week… Okay, I am not staying in the backyard, exactly. I am actually … Continue reading

Mirror mirror off the wall… the very last one… you know, unless I do some fun digital effects on some of the photos I did the mirror effects on…

We are back where we started, on a picture of a bridge. Not just any bridge, but my favorite bridge, the Golden Gate Bridge, which, ironically, is where I started also, because I was born in San Francisco, and grew … Continue reading
