Weather conditions here had us going straight to and from our appointments without any photo hunting detours. As a result my stash of recent shots suitable for the weekly memes has dried up.
So today I decided to take you on a red trip to San Francisco by way of my archives. These shots are from the fall of 2009. This was my first trip to the city by the bay and I was a tad disappointed. Thanks to a heavy fog in the bay, the entire three days we were there, I never did get see the entire Golden Gate Bridge. Best shot was the one on our sidebar. But, the weather was comfortable and we did see many interesting places. One of my favorites was Chinatown. I loved the noise, smells and bustle of the crowded streets.
I have been in love with the painted ladies near Alamo Square since I first saw them on television decades ago. But, San Francisco has many other styles of architecture besides Victorian and Edwardian . And this is, after all, a post about Red items so you will have to settle for this building on the edge of Chinatown.
We took a bus tour of the city and it seemed no matter where we went we were followed by the city's eyes in the sky.
This last shot was a sculpture I saw at one of the sidewalk booths in the plaza near the Embarcadero.
I am linking this post to Ruby Tuesday and Rednesday.
