Blue Angels Flying Over San Francisco in 1950


Blue Angels Flying Over San Francisco in 1950

It's that time of the year again for San Francisco Fleet Week and they Blue Angels will be returning to fly over San Francisco this weekend. The SFGate.com just published a fascinating story with photos of the Blue Angels flying over San Francisco back in 1950!!!

In the photo below we see the U.S. Navy Blue Angels flying over San Francisco, with Golden Gate Park on the left, and the Presidio on the right.


The photo below shows the Blue Angels flying over Golden Gate Park in San Francisco during Fleet Week, back in 1950! The more things change, the more they stay the same!!!

Palace Of Fine Arts
April 20, 2014

I usually end up taking photos of the Palace Of Fine Art at night, but this morning her beauty and majesty was glowing like crazy and I took these stunning shots. These shots remind me that, if Heaven exists, it can't be much more beautiful than San Francisco!

Walk Of Life The Zombies Are Coming!!!


Walk Of Life

The Zombies Are Coming!!!

I have walked many times to the Golden Gate Bridge and I have noticed that under just the right conditions, you can see people walking toward you that look like zombies, because they are kicking up dust, and a few days ago, I was able to capture this effect, as seen below.




Bird Parked On A Perch


Bird Parked On A Perch

Today, I was getting some sun, while admiring the beauty of the Palace Of Fine Arts, and when I looked up, I noticed I was not the only one.  I thought the fact the Seagull was chillin' on top of the street light was kind of profoundly ironic for several reasons. First of all, due to the fact he was parked on top of the street light, and it said NO PARKING and 2 HOUR PARKING on the lighting post. Secondly, the fact the Seagulls facing the same direction as the eagle on the back of the USPS truck. Also the crosswalk looks kind of like the Beatles Abbey Road.

1974 Honda Civic Ad Palace Of Fine Arts


1974 Honda Civic Ad
Palace Of Fine Arts

This is a fascinating Honda Civic Ad from 1974 and it was taken in front of the Palace Of Fine Arts in the San Francisco Marina. It is amazing how timeless the Palace Of Fine Arts is, but the design of the Honda and clothes did not fare so well.
