My visual art brain turns on when I drive into SF. The afternoon is mostly sunny and the air crisp and clean. The light on buildings on the Embarcadero shows off elegant new architecture – Portia, curved facades set into each other filled with elegant windows. Both classic and contemporary. Car colors merge with signage and restored ferry building look rich in Mediterranean light.
A marvelous variety of people – some dressed for spring break others for business — line the streets at crosswalks.
The antique boutique hotel is shabby chic. Walking with my best friend from high school through North Beach brings back memories.
