San Francisco is honored to have a vast treasure trove of rare and beautiful Asian works of art.   I believe this fan is Japanese.

You know, this image is in the Bolinas set of my "big" site, but right now I'm thinking I shot it elsewhere but can't remember where.   I think it was a sunrise and not a sunset.   Anyway, I guess the location really doesn't matter because the moment has passed.   Fortunately I have this small record of the event.

Update:   Oh, I just remembered -- the sunrise was at Aquatic Park in San Francisco a month or two ago.

These are what we call Horsetails and they grow prolifically next to bogs and streams.   They sort of remind me of Bamboo with their segmented stalks.

Some people call them "scouring rushes" -- they're gritty and a fist-full of the cut stalk ends can be used for scouring pots and pans.

One place you might want to stop at (just to visit) some day is the Bolinas Cemetery.   But again, even though this shot is in the Bolinas set of my "big" site, I think I shot it about five miles north near the tiny town of Olema.   Both Olema and Bolinas share the same distinction of having the San Andreas earthquake faultline run nearby.
