You were always on my mind.

I love Ortega Street on sunny days with her empty avenues that just spill out into Ocean Beach.

I took these pictures sometime last year during a spectacular Full Moon to the east that was clearly visible as the sun set to the west. It was a really unique and gorgeous day that I proceeded to completely forget about. Now that I’m in the process of swapping out iMacs I find myself stumbling across all of these forgotten pictures that I never got around to posting.

I really dig this spot. This is my Tower of Power. The Sunset Water Reservoir is easily one of the top 5 locations to watch the sunset in San Francisco. It also has a really unique and priceless view of the western SF skyline, yet most of the time it’s half empty if not completely deserted.

I love summers in San Francisco.

Sometimes it feels like everyday is a superhero street fair day.

Even Gavin Newsom showed up. That’s him holding court to the left of the rocketship.

That’s yet another reason to love San Francisco; it’s not uncommon to show up to a fringe Burning Man type art opening only to find yourself bumping into the mayor.

If goldfish ever ruled the earth I would imagine they would live in little suburban units like these two.





“That STILL don’t match!”

28 07 2010

So I was making fun of this house a few weeks ago.

The Spirit of Carville still lives on. Ocean Beach, Outer Sunset SF 5

Lord knows why anyone would think it’s a good idea to build a wood shingle kind of room on top of a sickly green colored room and call it a house, but hey. It’s a free country. I had a nice chuckle at my neighbors expense and then went on about my business.

Then while taking a new way home the other day I discovered this guy.

That STILL don’t match!

One house with a wood shingle kind of room built on top of a sickly green colored room and I can chalk that up to the actions of a lone nut.

But TWO houses with a wood shingle kind of room built on top of a sickly green colored room, both just a few blocks away from each other?

Now we’re talking about a conspiracy.

I’m still a big fan of all the skating pictures + videos in The Outer Sunset with those signature loud and tacky colors in the background. This is my home.
