Glimpses of San Francisco - BLUE

By
Real Estate Agent with Compass CA DRE# 01215160

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.

Nina Hollander - I'm guessing you're more of a "green" person - am I right? Glad you enjoyed the blue pictures.

Good morning Will Hamm - if you saw the Blue Angels fly over SF Bay, you had a thrilling sight indeed.

While most all color has its own beauty. I am most definitely a blue fan as it is my favorite color.  Lots of pretty blues in your selections. I remember seeing the blue angels years ago. Simply amazing.  Enjoy your weekend.

Hi Lottie,  What a great perspective to have while walking around a city.  Next time I am out and about I will try to pick a color to notice.  I really like your blue pictures.

Good morning, Bob Crane - in a way, focusing on one color at a time is rather like the Brownie Scout activity I used to do with the girls; with a piece of string tied in roughly a 15" diameter, they would find a spot to place it (out in a natural setting) and then record everything they saw in that small spot. We often focus on the big picture and don't see the myriad of small things around us.
