… that ate Chicago, February 4, 2018
Photographers angling for the best shot at today’s art.of.chi (an Instagram group) meet-up with the theme “Theatrical Smoke” under Chicago’s Wacker Drive (or thereabouts).
Shortly after the shoot, the participants just scattered about and disappeared. Then a Chicago fire truck blazed through the location. Somebody told I guess.

Tourists at the Marina in San Leandro, CA taking pictures of the sunset. Beautiful!
We like sunrise. I have been an early morning riser since I took this high school teacher job in Hammond, IN five years ago. I don’t have a choice (I have to be in school by 7:15 AM.). That’s why I am always out and about during weekends, alone or with frequent photowalk buddy Mark (of Mark Marshall Photography) taking pictures of the sunrise.
We conducted the first sunrise shoot of the year at the Fullerton esplanade overlooking the Chicago skyline from the north. It was quite frigid, I could only stand about 30 minutes of the cold, and had to leave Mark to seek warmth in the truck parked on Stockton and Fullerton.
But it was beautiful out there early in the morning.
Interesting, there were many of these East Asians (not sure if they were Koreans, Chinese or Taiwanese) girl pairs traveling around the San Francisco area. Saw them at Fort Point, at Stanford University, in Chinatown, at Baker Beach – very fashionable and hip young women – walking around in pairs. At first I thought, gee, why do I keep on bumping into the same girls? Later on, I realized, there were just many of them walking around San Francisco! I only took photos of two pairs of them both in Castro Street.
According to Wikipedia, in American architecture, painted ladies are Victorian and Edwardian houses and buildings painted in three or more colors that embellish or enhance their architectural details.
This row of seven houses in Alamo Square (on Hayes and Steiner) is one of the most photographed location in San Francisco, arguably called, “the postcard row.” I am staying at a friend’s house about half a mile down the road on Hayes St., so of course I just had to act touristy in the morning today, the last day of 2017.
