sunday in the city.

nature abounds in san francisco this sunday in the city…sunny skies and everything is in bloom. i love when the cherry blossoms make their annual visit, and i’ve been known to brake for those pink bunches of love. i’ll stop the car, and with the top down, take as many snaps as i can…until the horns start honking and i must move on. cherry blossoms weren’t the only thing in bloom, and this weekend i hit the mission district, and en-route perhaps only caused the very briefest of traffic jams with my camera. i swear!

    My fiancé and I are visiting SF (from MN) for our first time this weekend and Sunday was absolutely gorgeous. Staying in Japantown and stolling around the bay made for a great first impression of this city. Love it!

    Amazing colors! This is bad…but whenever I see those cherry blossom trees or forsythia I just think “…if only I had some pruning shears on me…”(but I promise I’ve never acted on that)

  5. AHHHHHHHHH….. a breath of fresh spring air! Thanks so much for providing a much-needed dose of beautiful, uplifting color!

    I LOVE these posts. I live near the Mission and these images capture the character so well while infusing a beauty that is sometimes not obvious. Thanks for these posts!

    Lovely bright colors! We were away from SF last week and pulled up to our front yard to discover our cherry tree had burst into bloom while we were away.

  18. I miss the Bay area so much and love when you share pics of around town. I’m here in Vegas where the architecture is ALL stucco boringness. I miss going for walks there just to soak up the scenery. Thank you so much for sharing!

    As I told you before I love your Sundays in the City photos – I can´t believe that it is now – this Sunday – that I have to experience a Sunday in your city – I just can´t wait…
