Having surgery tomorrow to address the back problem which, among other issues, has greatly restricted my photography. to mark this occasion i post an image taken back last summer in San Francxisco. It was taken on Howard Street just outside the Thirsty Bear, a micro brewery and restaurant and opposite the new entrance to the Museum of Modern Art. I think it is a wonderful mix of architecture old and new. It was taken at the height of Summer as encouragement to us all! Though I dont expect our skies to replicate that wonderful Californian blue. or the temperature to reach the 100F it did that day.
