I (Heart) San Francisco

To get to the family wedding in Northern California last weekend, we drove through San Francisco coming and going.

Oh, how I love SF architecture! Even when it's new (or new-ish), it's interesting-looking:

And when it's old, it's positively beautiful:

 Look at the trompe-l'oeil painting to the left and right of the arch:

I have no idea what the story on this crazy-looking Moorish fantasy is, but I bet it's intriguing:

Sometimes it's little things that make SF buildings so distinctive, like a touch of gilded paint:

Or some distinguishing plaques:

Or candy-box colors:

I love how SF houses play angles and curves off each other:

And, of course, I found a pug:

Ten-year old "Maximo" is the cherry on top of the sundae that is San Francisco.
