San Francisco by the Bay

A  L  O  H  A !
Golden Gate Bridge
My Delicate Red Pagoda

"One day if I go to heaven…..
I’ll look around and say 
“It ain’t bad, but it 
ain’t San Francisco”.
                                Herb Caen

Maritime City on a Peninsula

" If you’re alive,
 you can’t be bored 
in San Francisco.  

If you’re not alive, 
San Francisco will 
bring you to life……

San Francisco is 
a world to explore. 
It is a place where 
the heart can go on 
a delightful adventure. 
It is a city in which 
the spirit can know 
refreshment every day. "
                      William Saroyan

"  San Francisco has
 only one drawback – 
’tis hard to leave. "
                          Rudyard Kipling

Home again. . . 
                        Home again. . . .

I feel you are torn between two wonderful places Cloudia, that's how I felt when we left Africa, I loved growing up there.. but now I feel the same passion for Oz.. Perth in particular :)

Looks like you had a fun day in SF. I was expecting a grooveshark or YouTube recording of "I Left my Heart in San Francisco."

Kipling's quote is quite appropriate! Beautiful shots... the church particularly.

ooh, that's a nice angle of Coit Tower with Victorian trimmings. You've got me missing my once-upon-a-time home.

I enjoyed San Francisco when we lived in Concord many many years ago and we visited the city! Great photos.
