Say it again, a little bit quieter and a little bit milder

Well, today marks the end of the I ❤ SF contest. And, who wouldda guessed it, I got sick. The only photos I took were shot half-heartedly at best, while I either had a fever, a deep desire to be in bed, or a hacking cough. Huzzah. I'm entering them anyway. And I did get... Continue Reading →

Torn between two sides

I'm so excited! Tonight marks the beginning of WAM's I ❤ SF Visual Treasure Hunt! They seem like a new(ish) group with a very sketchy (in the 'bare bones' meaning of the word, mostly) .org website, but I think this is an awesome idea.

Cable Car Museum, SF

LetMeIn, originally uploaded by jujuwiz. Today, in remembrance of Emperor Norton and the day of his death, a slew of us donned funny hats and inspected the cable cars. It was a grand, grand day.

A lonely tree on Ivy Hill

ChristmasTree, originally uploaded by jujuwiz. Normally a Christmas tree on the side of the road doesn't merit a second glance. But a fully decorated one, a full week before Christmas? That's just sad. But isn't the towaway zone festive? It's an urban Christmas.
