Cee’s Black and White Challenge: Letters S or T

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week is designed for subjects that start with the letters S or T. I dug into my photo archives for this one… back to the afternoon in summer 2015 that I stumbled upon a group of swing dancers in Washington, DC’s historic Dupont Circle.

Cee’s Black and White Challenge: Letters C or D

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week is designed for subjects that start with the letters C and/or D. Oh, the possibilities!

This is one of my favorite city views, in one of my favorite cities.

CITY view, from COIT tower; San Francisco, CALIFORNIA

You can take an elevator to the top of Coit Tower to get 360 degree views of the City by the Bay. If you face West (as in the photo directly above), you are greeted by views of North Beach (Little Italy) and the Golden Gate Bridge. Face South (as in the very top photo) and see the Embarcadero, Financial District, and the Bay Bridge.

Keepin’ Austin Weird

Greetings from Austin Mural

I took a recent trip to Austin, Texas, which I briefly illustrated in my last post. A significant portion of my trip involved me stumbling across numerous beautiful murals throughout the city.

These eclectic murals capture the city’s diverse identity that has been shaped by it’s leading role as a hub for politics, education, and the arts.  They express faith, identity, community, and mandates, like “SMILE! Even if you don’t want to.”

Treasure Island: Views of Gold

Bay Bridge, San Francisco

Each trip I take to San Francisco involves some routine activities: Philz Coffee, favorite pizza joint, and a SF Giants Game. However, I always manage to stumble upon a new spectacular view of the city — in SF it isn’t difficult.
