Mmmm…

I’ll reserve comment else I’ll get Blocked from his Twitter feed (again. You know, for calling him an SFGov lickspittle last month, which he totally is.)

So that was the pro journalist.

Comes now, The Tens.

Same night, same show:

Oh that’s right, CW Nevius gets paid the same whether he does a half-assed job or not.

(And CW’s Conventional Wisdom writing is worse than his photography.)

Oh well.

(And switch cameras (or devices or whatever) and the The Tens would still take much better photos.)

A clear victor: The Tens.

Thx 4 playing…

Where Will YOU Be on 420 Day? In Golden Gate Park or at 420 Day Street in Noe Valley? Plus, an Awesome Vapor Cloud Photo

Friday, April 19th, 2013

Golden Gate Park be getting all crowded these days on annual 420 Day, so why not head on down to Noe Valley and light up at 4:20 PM at 420 Day Street instead?

The neighbors will welcome you interloping potheads with open arms. I’m sure!

Actually, Noe Valley is the locus of NIMBY – it’s filled with asshole millionaire homeowners and concomitant neighbor feuding.

Here it is, 420 Day, or close enough. Check out the comically large Planning Commission NOTICE OF HEARING notice on the front gate and the comically small recycling bin out front. (No black garbage can? A point of pride, I’m sure)

Oh, here we go, here’s real 420 Day, not too far from the Haight Street McDonalds on Stanyan.

That’s not fog, that’s a cloud of exhaled Mary Jane:

An excellent capture from world-famous Broke-Ass Stuart.

All right, Happy 420 Day 2013!

The Sidewalk Owls of the Bay Area – This Tiny Western Screech Owl Lives Just Above Your Heads – A Great Photo

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

Another great shot from San Francisco nature photographer David Cruz.

“A pair of little owls (Western Screech Owl) were in a hole in a live oak tree that hangs over a quiet street in the SF Bay Area. Very cool seeing them in a quiet urban situation, cars drove right under the hollow branch at a steady residential pace. Shortly after sunset, one owl stood near the edge for a moment before flying away,  allowing me to photograph it. “
