First week of Project 365

Based on my grand plan that began a week ago, I've heard a few grumblings that faithful readers expected me to post a new photo a day. Which as you'll see here, I have not done. I warned ya then that the idea was to *take* photos each day, but not necessarily to post daily. Reason being that it's rather a pain to download/upload, caption, tag and most of all edit down a selection. 


I've also discovered that Flickr and Picasa have their own quirks re management and organization. So - enough excuses - here are a few shots from this week. I hope to get a smoother process going this coming week and beyond. Meanwhile - extremely random glimpses from the last few days. 

Side door for apartment building - probably just behind it are the building's garbage bins. 

Las Palmas Mexicatessen, 24th & Florida.

Older mural that used to be gorgeous. I still love the light on the hills and the pitcher handle. 
It's so easy to shoot in the Mission - the pix practically take themselves. 

From earlier in the week ... 

Mika, looking terrifying? No. She's just really coming in close for a lick. 

Straight up the lightwell at my building (2 condos and a blue sky above). 

Holiday leftover on 27th Street. 

A favorite Yerba Buena sculpture: Shaking Man, by Terry Allen. 
The very epitome of 'gladhanding'. 

Entrance to the 60s exhibit at the newly-revamped Oakland Museum. 
Closeup from Lois Anderson's "Chinese Tower", Oakland Museum. 
She was an absolute Bay Area free spirit who called 
herself "Lotus Carnation" and died at 77 in 2004. 

Yes, there really is a sea dragon horse in the lobby 
of Bldg 46 (my office!) at the Googleplex. No, I don't know why. 

And that's a wrap for the week past. I'll sort out some other ways to upload and share as the days progress. What I can say is I love the idea of looking each day and shooting random images. The harder discipline is the editing and sharing. But maybe you knew that.

Hello, I see you appreciate Lois Anderson's art. I know of several of her works for sale, including at least one (her Venus) Oakland Museum decided not to keep. Her largest, most grand work, her Altar, just sold at Clars Auction gallery last Sunday. The purchaser realizes it is too large and may want to re-sell it right away. Photos and information available if you contact me. Thanks for appreciating Lois. She was quite a gal. And her art just keeps looking better. J-A- July 2012

I had fun choosing this particular painting online that now hangs in my downtown office, from Wahooart.com, who sells canvas prints of art masterpieces. While the original is treasured in some art museum in England, my print http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/Opra/BRUE-8LHS4U, of this painting by Edward Burne-Jones is very much appreciated by my staff and clients. The print quality is really excellent.
