Low-profile storefront in Northbeach -- it could be an artist's studio.

Facade at Pier39.   Get there early enough and you might not spot a single tourist.   Take a look at today's Daily-Duo to see a photo of the Sea Lions at Pier39.

Old tracks leading to the round-house on the Embardcadero...   Not too many years ago, San Francisco was a bustling shipping port -- and the Beltline Railroad was an essential part of getting freight to and from the Embarcadero.   These days ships off-load at the more economical and logistically superior Port of Oakland.

I don't think I care what shape my food is as long as it's there when I want it!

Nice,geometric photos.

HI LOUISE -- You reminded me of the old saying; "You can call me anything you want, but don't call me late for lunch"...

You must get up pretty early because I see tourists walk around already when I leave for work, and that's early enough, lol! Another nice series, thank you.

PS. I forgot to say. Remind me to stay away from your cat if I ever meet her!! A tomato-eating cat is news to me, too. Then again, I knew a carrot-eating dog (shrug).

what a fun (top pho) plate's I always are interested in HOW people ate and from what plate's, this is too designed to enjoy food?

The food store looks great, the block stones are very nice designs.

The old tracks are really awsome, I could not think of that 'as tracks'more like art...

I love you camera "Ëye"

Greetings JoAnn
