San Fransisco Apartment

I have finally returned to Atlanta after visiting our apartment in San Fransisco for almost 2 months. I’m astonished at the heat and humidity of Atlanta, even though I have previously experienced it for years and years. Somehow, after spending weeks in temperatures ranging from the low 50’s to the occasional very low 70’s with delightfully […]

I went out and shot several photos of the San Fransisco street cars, had them printed as C prints at Dickerman Prints1. They were mounted  (aluminum back with plexiglass front) by General Graphics. I hate hanging things on the wall. I measure a dozen times and still end up with things not perfectly aligned. Plus, I […]

By Comparison: SFS/ASO

I suppose we become spoiled bit by bit, without really being aware of the process. When we repeatedly experience something marvelous, and are even acutely aware of how extraordinary the experiences are, we still seem somewhat unaware that our expectations for this new, higher level of perfection are also growing. I recently had this expectation […]

More San Francisco Photos

Here are a few other PhonePhotos from my week in the city. I want to brag about Affinity Photo: perspective correction is really easy. Removing people, puddles, and objects (such as cars) is a mouse stroke away! Numerous distracting center foreground reflective puddles were easily removed from the above photo of San Francisco’s City Hall. […]

Back from San Francisco

Yes, we bought a little place back in San Francisco, and I spent this past week setting it up—well, mostly. The special-order furniture has yet to arrive, but the basics are now in place. I’m always amazed at how much time is required to set up even the smallest apartment, especially when you don’t know the […]

We were treated to lunch at Boulevard Restaurant (Nancy Oakes executive chef and owner), which is located in the glorious, historic Audiffred building. Apparently the building survived the 1906 fires because the owner promised the fire department barrels of whiskey to save the building. The Boulevard section of the building is just gorgeous!

Ravaged by the French

This past weekend we went back to San Francisco for a concert by the San Francisco Symphony, a gift from the French: music from Bizet’s Carmen Suites (1874), Ravel’s 1930 Piano Concerto in D major for the Left Hand (Jean-Efflam Bavouzet playing), and Saint-Saëns’ 1886 Symphony No. 3, Opus 78, the Organ Symphony (Jonathan Dimmock […]
