I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

I am overwhelmed, but in a good sense 😀 I have to say that I like the statue with a parking lot best. Why you ask, cause I’ve never seen such a nice shot of a parking lot. Thank you, Jude. 🙂
makes me feel quite dizzy looking at it!
Great set…..and your parking lot puts me in mind of Joni Mitchell…..
I liked the grain and the B&W. They gave it something of a retro feel.
Regards as always, Pete. x
One of my big regrets- not making it to San Fran. 😦 Love that last shot 🙂
Well you can read all about it on my blog 🙂
Actually I really like the graininess, particularly in the last photo.
Ah, now that one was edited using the low-key effect. You are very observant 🙂
Your shot of the parking lot really grabbed my attention, Jude. Nice to see that there were still a few spaces available. 🙂 I remember a day at Pier 39 in July. It was so freezing cold, that I had to buy a sheepskin winter jacket from one of the stores. They were well stocked, and obviously knew how cold it could be in summer. 🙂
I have only been there in winter and last visit there was a heat wave! I know in the summer they get a lot of fog so I suppose that cools things down.
Having grown up in the Bay Area, I’ve been to San Francisco many times and am embarrassed to say I have never been in Coit Tower. What a great vantage point! I too, love the parking lot photo!
Oh you must go in to the tower, not only for the 360 degree views, but also the murals – they are exquisite.
Great photos, and the black and white gives them a timeless quality. We didn’t make it up the Coit Tower when we were there, but we did visit the car park on our segway tour. 🙂
Oh, shame you missed the tower, the murals inside are divine.
We segwayed (if that is the correct term) up to the tower car park and were given a 5 minute break. We dashed into the tower and just had time to have a very quick look at the murals, which were very impressive, and then it was back on the segways and off back down the hill. Next time I’ll go up the tower!
