SIGNS: a (short) week in San Francisco

CUP, in the Neighborhood, Glen Park San Francisco, April 2012

I apologize to anyone who might follow this blog—too much simply got in the way and I haven't been able to keep it up. But, over Spring Break I made a quick trip to San Francisco to celebrate my friend Lil's birthday, and take a much needed vacation from teaching and the hassles of life in NYC. The weather wasn't great, but the air is always fresh and the surrounding views elating. Did a side-trip south to Pescadoro, artichoke country—tried artichoke soup, artichoke bread and grilled artichokes—and, had a massage in nearby Costanoa at a rustic spa/resort along the Pacific—I could live like that, if only.

This little cafe recently opened nearby my friend's home—as expected in San Francisco, their coffee is good and the blueberry muffin too. Unfortunately the weather kept me from my usual wandering, so this is the only blog pic I could manage.

I'm back in the City, and back to teaching, but today the sun is shining, the Union Sq. Market is bustling, and I am hopeful that I'll soon be out and about to shoot.
