San Francisco Trip

A few iphone images from my recent trip to San Francisco for the Arts of Pacific Asia Show as well as the Tribal and Textile Show.

The recently completed Contemporary Jewish Museum near the MOMA downtown.

A walk across the Golden Gate Bridge where I spoke to the painters. Notice the small painters box suspended from the right hand cables. Two painters go up the cables in this box painting as they go.

A detail of a cross section of one of the 36-1/2" diameter main cable from the bridge. Each made up of 27,572 wires and adding up to a cumlalative 80,000 miles of wire. 

Sunrise near the end of the Alameda swap meet.

A friend hauling away the treasure.

Wanted, but fortunately had no space for...

Some of the Ruth Asawa pieces on permanent display in the tower at the de Young Museum.
