The blue house is extraordinary! I love it, Joanne! The blue house with the fanciful paper cut-outs hanging along the staircase! How beautiful! :) :)

It's hard for me to visit your blog, as it takes forever to load on my screen, due to the amount of large photos that need to upload!
Lovely, Jo! Beautiful architecture... Glad to see you are still out there shooting things. =D

Daisy said…
The top of the Castro theater is gorgeous! Too bad it is so high up so people can't enjoy the detail more.
Lesley said…
Love the trolley bus. I do so wish we hadn't gotten rid of all ours (I think a few went to SF and were repainted)
jo said…
That is indeed blue.
True blue.
Are those houses really that brightly coloured?
And your whole blog is dipped in the colour too :-)
I love the siken flag so gently fluttering in the breeze.
