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.

Having a Mirror Project moment.
Saw myself in the mirror inside the Carmel Mission Basilica, so I thought I would do a Mirror Project. The Mirror Project was Heather Champ’s “adventures in reflective surfaces” site where people submitted pictures of themselves in mirrors and other reflective surfaces. It is still online, but it no longer accepts submissions. Heather Champ was one of the originators of JPG magazine and was the Director of Community at Flickr. She is with Fertile Medium, an online community consultancy.
One of the strange rooms (out of 160) in the quaint eccentricity called Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, CA.
