Glimpses of San Francisco - Orange

By
Real Estate Agent with Compass CA DRE# 01215160

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 we end a post about orange without mentioning Halloween and jack o'lanterns!

Sheila Anderson I think of black, green and orange when I think of colors in Africa. Don't know if I'm right or not.

Barbara Todaro - San Francisco is such a walkable city, I rarely take the car out here in town (the Peninsula is another matter!) From the Embarcadro at the bay to Ocean Beach is about 7.5 miles - that's it! North to south, similar. Lots of opportunity to look for and appreciate colors.

Lottie,

We both have orange as a favorite color.  It is happy, energetic and looks great in graphics if done right.  Have a great weekend. A

I too love your color posts. Orange flowers are so vibrant. Mix in yellow and red and it is magnificent. Look forward to the next color.

Hello Ron and Alexandra Seigel - orange is a happy color!

Glad you enjoy these "color" posts Grant Schneider . I have fun with them.

Sharon Lee - I bet you like nasturtiums, with their blend of orange, yellow and red. I do-they are "happy flowers."

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS - there are so many shades of orange; one shade can be perfect for everyone.

George Souto - oh, I wish I had a picture of the Giants' orange logo, uniforms, etc. they did a great job yesterday.

Hi Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - it was nice of Barbara Todaro to share my "orange" post. She mentioned to me recently that she has lots of workout tops arranged by color in her closet -- I suspect that includes some orange ones!

Orange is my least favorite color. However, I love seeing the color orange in nature.

Hi Michelle Carr Crowe,Altas Just Call...408-252-8900! - I like some of the softer shades of orange, but recently discovered I love the pop of bright orange flowers in my house. Instant cheer! Happy Sunday to you.

Hi Lottie:

The orange really pops, although I have to say the orange of the sunrises and sunsets is my favorite. Next up probably the poppies! But then I like all the colors of San Francisco and all that it offers! Hope I get to meet you in November - I believe there is an AR meetup planned to coincide with the CRS and NAR meetings.

Jeff Dowler, CRS - yesterday, as we played with the dogs at Crissy Field, I laughed and laughed, realizing I hadn't included a picture of the Golden Gate Bridge, painted International Orange! San Francisco's world known landmark.
