Kiosk on Streets of San Francisco
I was taken by how lonely and isolated this model looked, trapped in a glass box on a cold day on the street corner in San Francisco. I’m safe and warm in my car while other women walk by her not noticing her static icy beauty. I’m sure a lot of work went into this modern-day Totem pole, trying to get us to worship on the altar of extreme wealth. Come to think of it, I’m glad the gals in jeans and practical shoes are walking on by.

I didn’t realize I had such a big variety of ways of getting around until I started searching my archives for this weeks Sunday Post Transportation The Space shuttle shot is one of my favorites. We went out to the bay the day it made its final fly-by on the way to LA Museum. I don’t have any pictures of our local BART trains. Oh Wait but I do have to another local favorite the Ferry Boats that zip around the Bay.

The Nature of February 2nd
The groundhog, may or may not have seen his shadow today. It hasn’t rained this winter in California until today. Now that’s a sigh. Little girls put on bright rubber boots and flowered coats and run in the rain, climb blooming fruit trees. That much joy is infectious and will keep the rain coming!!!

Fantasy figure on Japanes Fan
I realized I didn’t have any any dragons or other magical creatures among my thingies but the images on my fans qualify as fantastical I do believe.

Find the bee
California Poppies attract bumble bees. Often there are whole hillsides covered in our golden state’s flower, but this year it is very dry. As you can see the leaves are already brown in May and the wildfire season has also started early. Rain is on the way today but not enough to bring back the gold I am afraid.

Little blue chair my grandfather brought from Mexico for me when I was 6. I took it out into the garden to pose among the flower for the Sunday post:: sentimental value. Those were sweet moments moving this treasure around from place to place while I remembered the curly headed little girl who first owned this chair. How I took the chair to school for show and tell and the teacher did a whole unit on Spanish because of it. This is the only thing I remember Grandpa ever gave me, too.
See it even says Mexico.. Those are Mexican marigold in the background. Did any one else have a mexican chair when they were young?

Jakesprinters suggested bay as a topic. I have too any pictures of San Francisco Bay to even begin so I picked a few and one of Bodega Bay. For those in know if you look close might see Tippi Hedren in a little boat. 😉 Click on any picture to view as a slide show.
The planets have arranged themselves in this rare parade or conjunction. You will not often see Moon, Neptune, Mercury, Sun, Mars, Venus and Uranus so close together.
Star Arrangements or constellations just after sunset as seen directly west over San Francisco (latitude 37) Taken from my phone app Sky Map. I was out looking for the comet Panstarrs using the phone app to help me find exactly where the sun had set when I noticed this startling arrangement of planets.
For more about the comet go to Nasas Guide for Viewing Panstarrs. It has already made it’s way through the Southern Hemisphere and is now crossing the equator towards us in the North, So Sorry Jake who suggested Sunday Post Arragment that the Comet has passed you by.
