SF bay at dusk

Downtown Oakland is in the foreground with SF in the background.  You can see one span of the Golden Gate Bridge on the right.  This photo was taken from the Mormon Temple.  The low slung cloud cover  in the background is actually the fog coming in from the ocean.


  1. Hello Carolyn. Welcome. I hop will enjoy the viwes from Oakland in your photo blog.
    I have family who live there in your city, their fathers, who just die, are from my city, Funchal, in Madeira island, in Portugal.
    Good Chistmas.

  2. It’s that time of year again! I’m doing the rounds and apologising for my complete failure to more regularly offer comment on everybody’s incredible efforts for the year. I know how hard it can be to keep up with the daily grind of everyday posting, and want to thank you for your efforts.

    I especially want to wish festive greetings for all from down here at [nearly] the end of the world, the bottom of Tasmania.

    So, if you could delete whatever is not applicable, I’d like to wish you a very pleasant/merry/happy/wonderful/safe Amaterasu; Ashurall; Beiwe; Choimus; Christmas; Dazh Boh; Dongzhi; Goru; Hanukkah; Hogmanay; Junkanoo; Karachun; Koleda; Lenæa; Meán Geimhridh; Modranicht; New Years; Ras as-Sana; Rozhanitsa Feast; Şeva Zistanê; shōgatsu; Summer Solstice [if you're in the Southern Hemisphere]; Sviatki; Vánoce; Winter solstice [if you're in the Northern Hemisphere]; Yalda; Yule-tide; Ziemassvētki; and Коляда!

    With a hearty three cheers from Kris, Jen, Henry and Ezra!
