it's colorful in San Francisco

Certain sections of upper Market Street are livelier than others.   A bold splash of yellow always cheers away the blues.

It's a fair claim that San Francisco's alleys and narrow streets are a bit more colorful than those of the typical American city.

I just didn't have the guts to snap this colorful couple head-on from the front, plus it looked like they were going someplace and I didn't want to slow them down.   I was having a hard time keeping a straight-face anyway...   Didn't want to push anyone's buttons.

Doesn't get any more colorful than gold gilding on a wrought iron lamp.   Our Nation's Capitol?   Nope -- San Francisco City Hall.

I'll be looking forward to October when S.F. Mike will probably review Gaetano Donizetti.   Not much chance I'll decide I want to attend, but I like to keep current on our colorful city.

I know what you mean about shooting the camera right at someone's face. Probably good you didn't try ;) Besides, just looking at the back makes your imagination wonder a bit.

Dear Donald: Do think of getting in touch next time you're in my neighborhood. The name is Michael Strickland and I'm in the phone book on McAllister Street.

Would love to take you standing room at the opera sometime. It's only $10 and is a kick.
