Glimpses of San Francisco - Yellow!

By
Real Estate Agent with Compass CA DRE# 01215160

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!Yellow car in SF neighborhood

Hello Ron and Alexandra Seigel - San Francisco has two long public staircases that are beautifully tiled; a third is near Lincoln Park. This one is usual, I think, because it's at a private residence. Happy Saturday.

Hello Sharon Lee - I've enjoyed noticing the various spots of yellow recently; and I'm with your dad about the Corvette!

Hi Lottie,
I love that you walk and actually notice colors and things around you! Is there any color happier than yellow?

I gotta love that Queen Anne Victorian, Lottie.  Of course, if the yellow Corvette just happened to come with it, I could handle that too!

Good morning, Carol Williams - yellow is definitely a happy color. I'm feeling a pink mood growing. We'll see. Happy Sunday to you.

If I had that yellow Victorian, with the yellow Corvette in the driveway, and yellow roses in the garden, with some yellow art work near the doorway, would I still like yellow?  I guess I won't find out, Myrl Jeffcoat !

Hi Patricia - I hope you found a bit of yellow in between storms today - a ray of sunshine perhaps? yellow in a rainbow? a yellow sunflower bravely defying storms?
