Park Benches

Nice to see these city trees still have a function and not recycled to be used for another purpose.
How appropriate to sit on a tree and be shaded by trees to contemplate the trees.
Think about it...

Watch Your Steps

Out the doorway and onto this spiral staircase.
Up or down?
Whichever way you decide to go, watch your step.
You are likely to spin out of control if you are not careful.

Reaching for the Moon - Skywatch Friday

After the day's storm, the sky cleared up to see the moon.
Even the tree branches look forward to no rain and want to embrace the bright object in the sky.

My first time participating in Skywatch Friday.

Tourist Attraction

Curio shops litter the touristy parts of town in San Francisco and statues such as this one try to lure customers in to buy something.

In this San Francisco community garden where members come to care for the plants and trees, a reminder to save water is posted at many of the faucets.
Especially like the last few weeks, we did not get much rain so any droplet conserved is a droplet saved.

The garden is open to everyone to enjoy.

Have a great weekend!

Lion Dance

With it being the Lunar New Year on Thursday, the local art museum hosted a lion dance show during its free admission weekend.

With record high temperatures, there was a large turnout to watch the show.

Kids were encouraged to touch and interact with the lions.

Candy Art

Here a candy sculptor entertained us with her creativity and skillful hands.

She took requests from the audience and in minutes was able to sculpt a different animal or creature out of a block of molten corn syrup.

She showed off her masterpieces after her demonstration.
