Bay View

Just for Paula, a few shots from above San Francisco Bay.

Golden Gate Bridge



Pier 39 and Alcatraz

San Francisco – Oakland Bay Bridge


All photos taken from the 210 foot high Coit Tower on Telegraph Hill. Apologies for the poor grainy quality of these images – they were taken through glass.

Paula’s black and white Sunday.

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.

  1. 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. 🙂

  2. 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. 🙂

    1. 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.

  3. 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!

      1. 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!
