Who doesn’t love a long weekend?! Here are some pictures of how I spent my long weekend 🙂
We helped my boss and his wife move into their new home on Saturday. Check out our Uhaul with snakes on it. It turns out that I am not very helpful when moving, but I did direct pretty well. I think I should start weight lifting so I can help lift heavy furniture next time.
I checked out San Francisco Zine Fest on Saturday, I had no idea what to expect.
I picked up a few Zines and cards while I was there. I haven’t finished reading through them but I’ll add a review if anyone is curious about them.
We stopped in Petsmart and Cody had fun saying hello to all the cats. I could never own a cat, but there are cute sometimes
I thought I would close this with Duke looking majestic as usual. Hope everyone had an amazing weekend.
This place isn’t any secret to photographers in San Francisco. Pier 24 is a photography gallery that is on pier 24 in San Francisco.
What makes this place awesome:
1. You have to make a reservation to visit. The benefit? There are never large crowds of tourists. It’s a calm and quiet environment to enjoy some beautiful photos.
2. This place exhibits the legends in photography, they aren’t messin’ around. There is always a good mix of contemporary and classic artists.
3. The location is great, it is near the ferry building just beneath the bay bridge, after you’d had your fill of art you can walk a short distance to grab a bite to eat.
Check out the current exhibit on their website.
The weather in San Francisco was a little dreary over this weekend, so we escaped up north to Muir Beach to try and get a little sun. We brought Duke with us and we found out he really doesn’t like water. He LOVES sand though! He dug holes and rolled around in the sand, which meant he needed a mandatory bath when he got home. It was a great time!
I also thought I would share the custom table for the Westfalia, that sits in the middle of the front seats so we have a nice little arm rest. Also as you can see, a strap at a blanket have become my head rest in the car, because I am too dang short for the seats. And here is a little portrait that I took for fun because I saw really pretty dappled light, always got to capitalize on that dappled light!
Well that was my weekend, how was yours?!
This last week has been very very crazy(more at work than at home). I am in my 5th week of riding my brand new Christmas Bike to work:
This picture was snapped on our way home and we stopped to grab some dinner. Daylight savings happened this week and the Morning sunrise bike rides to work have been pretty amazing. Equally amazing is riding home in the evening and it is still light outside. I will admit, I have been pretty sore at the end of the day, but I’m trying to fight through it because riding is so fun! Even on the way home when the whole ride is uphill and my legs want to give out or I laugh so hard when I can’t get off my bike at the end of our ride, I still WANT to ride. It’s been super fun.
This week I also started looking at Art history, specifically painting, and have been really inspired by Baroque Still Life Paintings. For example, this painting entitled, “Vanitas(1640)” by Dutch Golden Age painter; Harmen Steewijck:
I’ve found that I really love researching and learning new things, I’ve started a new series Inspired by this piece and others in the Baroque period. I’m really enjoying not being in school and feeling rushed to finish a series by the end of a semester.
After over 2 years of living in the Inner Sunset, we just discovered the hidden garden steps:
And it’s only a few blocks from our house! How did we miss this thing, it’s so pretty!
And last, but not least, We rode our bikes to this amazing view in the sunset:
I have to say, I really really do love San Francisco. When we leave to drive across the US in the Westfalia, I am going to try to hold on to all the memories from this place.
This weekend was a last minute run around type of weekend. I had lots of last minute shopping to do and it’s finals week for Cody, so we both had plenty to get done.
Here’s a few random images I captured while we were running around.
These robots were at a gallery that we visited. I ended up buying a print and doing a little DIY on the frame, which I’ll post later.
We drove around in Lucy this weekend toting around Cody’s bike to shoot some finals homework.
Lucy overlooking the avenues in San Francisco. This spot is literally right behind our house, you just walk up some stairs to the top and there’s a panoramic view of the entire bay area on a clear day. Everyone calls it the ‘Knuckle’ I have no idea what this park is actually called.
If you are ever in the outer sunset, trouble coffee stickers can be found everywhere. If you are a coffee drinker, I hear they’ve got good stuff. (Seen on 46th and Irving.)
Hope everyone had a good weekend 🙂
