sunrise ~ 12/25/10 ~ San Francisco

sunrise looking over to downtown San Francisco
from Grandview Park
December 25, 2010

This picture was taken oddly enough from the Sunset District. As much as I love the diversity of people in San Francisco and the Bay Area, I'm not sure I'd like living there, er, with all the people and traffic. It's certainly a larger peninsula in many respects than where I live 2 hours south on the Monterey Peninsula. The green strip in the middle on the left of the photo above is Golden Gate Park.

Great shot! Although the city is full of people and constant movement, you wouldn't be able to tell from this photo...very peaceful.

"Don't let the sun go down..." comes to mind. :)

That's my neighborhood park -- Grandview Park -- about two blocks from where I live. Great views up there.

Lovely shot. Really enjoying the amazing air quality we've been getting in between rain/snow. Yes, city I'd never want to live in, but LOVE love love to visit.

Going there is on my bucket list although I'm generally not partial to big cities....

It's a pretty amazing place to live though! It's a bit more low-key than my old home of Chicago, and a whole lot more eclectic.

My old neighborhood!
I've become a total hick - don't enjoy being in the city anymore.

I'm surprised by the numerous comments for this nondescript sunrise shot of "The City" (Am I the only one who still calls S.F. that?). Similar to where I live, being out in the early morning and on a major holiday makes the hubbub more tolerable for a reasonable recluse like me. Thanks to everyone who commented, as it encourages me to continue this blog.

John, thanks for identifying the location, b/c based on my photo of an interpretive sign (see flickr), I thought I was at Golden Gate Heights Park.

Mr. T, funny thing about bucket lists... 17 years ago I crossed off everything on my bucket list and I've been stumped ever since as to what to do next.

Chris, nice to see you blogging again.

Janet, I'm thinking we'll meet in real life soon. You're a very cool lady!
