Photo Hunt #93: Public

Sometimes one can have very private moments even in the midst of a very PUBLIC place like on an island of a very busy city thoroughfare.   (Barcelona, November 2009)

Join us in the hunt at PHOTO HUNT, hosted by Ms. Tnchick.

My World #80: 2010 Aids Walk Part 2

To continue from last week’s post, I am here to show you some more of the shots I took while doing the 6 mile walk around Golden Gate Park.

 

I saw someone who has been doing this walk for a while as evidenced by all the souvenir pins that they give each year.  Did I count 14?  14 years of walking for AIDS? 

Didn’t know Robert Burns has a statue inside the park.

We saw bellydancers who we’ve been told are here yearly to entertain walkers.  Other performances were stationed along the route at regular intervals and included UC Berkeley’s marching band, a Japanese drum performance, a Filipino martial arts demonstration, etc.

And we passed by the Conservatory of Flowers with its beautifully manicured front lawn.

MY WORLD.

Sky Watch #100:

I just hit the century mark, yay!  And I’m celebrating.  Join me won’t you, I’m buying lunch in here 🙂

Weather note:  SF and Oakland posted record time lows yesterday.  SF’s temp topped 58, which is an all-time low for July 21, and Oakland’s high of 61 beat a record posted in 1944.  It has been a cool summer around these parts so far.

The past week all I have seen while skywatching is fog.
