colors: Glimpses of San Francisco - Rainbow colors! - 06/28/19 05:15 PM
As the colorful month of June draws to a close, what could be more appropriate than to focus on all the rainbow colors seen around The City.
We see the rainbow hues in shop windows, like the shoes store in the Fillmore District, on the wall at Batch! (where Russian Hill meets Nob Hill) and in mosaics in Noe Valley.
Rainbow colors are spotted on staircases, from staircases and inside museums.

Automobiles are not exempt from the beauty of rainbow colors, nor is City Hall, a spectacular rainbow sight to greet patrons leaving the symphony
Night or day, rainbow colors brighten the month of June, … (45 comments)

colors: Glimpses of San Francisco - Red! - 06/21/19 02:24 PM
While exploring San Francisco, especially on foot, one has the opportunity to really focus on small things, like the color red. Once you start to focus, you see red everywhere.
Sometimes it's hard to miss, like the red dress of the White Crane Troop of musicians welcoming in Chinese New Year, or the brilliant red of the mini free library and bench in front of a residence in Presidio Heights.
You will find red on all sorts of transportation options, and they are many in San Francisco, both people-powered and motorized.

Nature makes a showing in red, and even our wonderful, eclectic houses sport … (34 comments)

colors: Glimpses of San Francisco - Orange - 06/06/19 07:43 PM
Exploring San Francisco, it's hard not to spot accents of orange. You'll find orange in the natural world; in a sunset at Ocean Beach, above, or in gardens throughout the city, like the poppies at Fort Mason Community Garden and the other flowers brightening Holly Hill Park on a cloudy day.

Orange accents buildings, both large like this condo building in the Hayes Valley and small like the entry to tiny Cafe La Mediterranee on Fillmore Street.

In San Francisco, you'll find orange inside buildings, on art walls in North Beach cafes and on art pieces at the Asian Art Museum.

Finally, how can … (29 comments)

colors: Glimpses of San Francisco - BLUE - 05/24/19 07:38 PM
As I walk around San Francisco this spring, I've been more aware of all the colors I see in the neighborhoods more than many other times. I've shared some yellow photos, then pink and green.
When the skies cleared on Wednesday and Thursday, I was struck by BLUE - brilliant blue, soft blue, navy blue, ocean blue.
Some years, when the Blue Angels perform over San Francisco Bay in October, the skies really are as blue as in the picture.
You'll spot blue houses around town, like this one on Jackson Street in Pacific Heights.
Or this darker blue Edwardian house not far away, with … (41 comments)

colors: Glimpses of San Francisco - PINK! - 04/30/19 08:44 PM
Last week I shared various pictures I took that showcased Glimpses of yellow as I walked in San Francisco. Later I shared information about a one-night trip we took to the Sonoma County coast. That little get-away completely refreshed me and re-charged my batteries and left me----ahem---in the PINK.
So today, here are some glimpses of PINK spotted in and around San Francisco.
The cover picture shows delicate PINK cherry blossoms in Golden Gate Park.

colors: Glimpses of San Francisco - Yellow! - 04/24/19 08:43 PM
Many people have heard that the distinct neighborhoods of San Francisco provide much of the charm of The City. For a REALTOR like me who loves to walk, I catch glimpses that often would pass by someone riding in Uber, Lyft, or driving themselves.
Recently I have been struck by the beautiful colors I see as I walk to and from appointments, as I walk to my office, bank, shopping errands, and as I walk for the sheer joy of walking.
Perhaps it's because we've had a couple of unseasonably warm spring days this week, but today I'm thinking YELLOW!
