Sky Watch #275: Go Niners!

2012_12_06 204

In line with the staging of Super Bowl this Sunday, my Skywatch image today is a twilight scene from New Orleans taken in November, after the Thanksgiving Holiday. We were flying to New Orleans from San Fran to catch a cruise to the Caribbean. The plane was filled with 1) cruisers and 2) 49er fans. The San Francisco 49ers were in New Orleans to play the Saints that Sunday.

This is a twilight scene from Jackson Square with Jackson’s statue and a frontal view of the St. Louis Cathedral.

Go Niners!!!!!

Photo Hunt #210: Knitted/Architecture

San Francisco has plenty of knitted architecture(houses), which I believe is done on purpose to lessen the damage of earthquakes. Knitted also means “closely together”.

Photo Hunt #200: Yellow/Haven

A year ago, a friend of ours, a single guy found his haven in the posh hillside community east of San Francisco. He invited some friends over to check out the house, which was a ranch style (I love ranch style houses) and spend the afternoon noshing and watching sports on tv.

I was busy noshing and taking pictures. As you may understand I’m not going to show any photos of inside the house, it’s not mine to show. Anyway, what was really very nice about this house is it was move in ready. There is a small backyard, tiled and requires zero maintenance. A plus to a single guy in his 30s.

His backyard has lovely flowers, the yellow ones are especially eye-catching.

Why the need to say the milk in this container is not for sale? Do people stop this truck carrying milk and buy retail from the driver?

Seen on more than one occasion during our trip to India last summer.
