And now I’m still a wondering…

And, speaking of exceeding limits, here’s the cracked sidewalk out front:
“More Than A Place To Live, This Is A Way To Live.
Rare and precious, shimmering on the skyline like crystal, Millennium Tower is one of Worth Magazine’s “Top 10 Residential Buildings in the World.” Inspired by the very essence of San Francisco, in form and in function, this is an address like no other.
FOR EVERY LIFESTYLE, A LIVING SPACE. Millennium Tower residences are the canvases where owners create their own unique San Francisco lifestyle. Streetwise and close to the city’s energy. Comfortably situated in a welcoming, open aerie. Or high above it all, with a view of the iconic Bay Bridge and the world beyond. Here, urban luxury living is elevated to an art form.
In the 11-story mid-rise adjacent to the main tower, City Residences offer an urban loft aesthetic connected to the energy of the street.
Ensconced on the 3rd through 25th floors, The Residences feature clean lines, designer finishes and exceptional city views.
The Grand Residences
From the vantage point of floors 26 through 60, The Grand Residences are the pinnacle of luxury, unparalleled in San Francisco.
RAT PATROL UPDATE: Rec and Park Takes Away Trash Cans at the Panhandle Playground, But Citizens Simply Replace Them with Garbage BagsThursday, February 4th, 2016
You know, for better or worse.
Get up to speed on this pressing matter right here, but TRIGGER WARNING: Rats!
Oh Look, No More Garbage Cans at the Golden Gate Park Panhandle Playground – Why? – Rats – Lots and Lots and Lots of RatsWednesday, February 3rd, 2016
Bye bye new-school garbage cans – this is the west side, near Oak and Clayton, and the one on the east side of the playground just recently disappeared as well.
Why? Because of all the roof rats. I hear tales of ppl seeing up to ten together, scrambling around, generally in the evening hours. Oh here’s the best shot I have at this particular location, taken from far away:
Speaking of tails, if you see a rat with a tail longer than its body and you’re in Frisco, then you’re looking at a roof rat (Rattus rattus, I’m srsly), which is your basic black rat, I s’pose (as opposed to your Norway rat and whathaveyou)
And here’s what wants to eat it/them at the Panhandle Playground:
So I suppose the closest trash can is now on the bike path near Fell and Ashbury (or maybe inside the Panhandle Bathroom, but I’ve never ventured inside there).
Here’s what’s at the northeast corner of the Panhandle Playground in Golden Gate Park:
And here’s what wants to eat it/them:
Someday I’ll get a shot like this, except with a roof rat instead of a gopher.
A Hobbit Jail Under the Stairs Near Post Street – Not a Good Place To Be When the Next Big One ComesTuesday, December 8th, 2015
Redeveloping the Fillmore was a horrible horrible idea is what I think when I see all the concrete and clay and general decay around Post and Buchanan.
Oh look, a big parking garage – this is the last place you’d want to be in an earthquake, but there’s no money to fix anything, oh well.
And this cubby hole here needs to be locked up, else people would sleep here, of course:
On It Goes…
The Scary, Batlike Hummingbirds of Golden Gate Park – And This Other One has a Costume for Halloween 2015Friday, October 30th, 2015
This little critter startled me the other day, as it’s in the same bush where I saw a roof rat a few weeks back.
Dese boids generally have an all-carbs diet, but sometimes they need a little protein. This the last thing some spiders see:
Sort of looks like a bat to me.
But now it’s time for costumes. This little feller’s mantle is saying, “Hey ladies, look at me!”
(Hey, you know, speaking of scary, area Republican Ron Conway, through his interest in Pinterest, has made more money off of this shot than I have. Taken more than a decade ago with a $4500 camera and $4500 worth of glass it was. I’m in the wrong “business.”)
