Glimpses of San Francisco - Red!

By
Real Estate Agent with Compass CA DRE# 01215160

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 red trim and festoons of red on store fronts.

Hello Joe Pryor - a number of people have said that red is a favorite color. I love pops of red in my home, too.

Well, Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP - no need to be red with envy - I'm sure you have equally stunning reds near you in Texas. (Actually, I don't believe you are a very envious person.)

Hi Ron and Alexandra Seigel - I spotted lots of lovely purple jacarandas blooming in Cupertino this afternoon; I thought of you and Santa Barbara.

Hello Lottie - while red can certainly be subtle at times, it typically seems to call attention to itself almost shouting as we notice it...

What an interesting idea for a post. I once wrote about red doors that were truly big in my neighborhood.

I want to red Volkswagen, Lottie.  And, I also like that house with the red trim in the last photo.

I think a red Miata would be ever so much fun, Myrl Jeffcoat . Just imagine, you in a red VW and me in a red Miata could go on car rallies!
