You know, instead of a lime green:

Phil Ginsburg Breaks Bad! – Drains Lily Pond, Applies Sodium Hypochlorite and Calcium Hydroxide – Video of White Wasteland

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

I just caught a sneak peek of the sixth season of Rec and Park and boy, it’s a doozie:

Parks Chief Phil Ginsberg et. al. have cooked up a batch of white powdery chemicals…

…and they’ve applied it to the now-drained Quarry Lake / Lily Pond in Golden Gate Park.

Here’s what the place looks like now:

It’s a powdery wonderland, filled with all kinds of urban flotsam and jetsam…

…but there’s nary a peep out of those troublesome frogs.

Check this one-minute video of the place – it would be a good place for a seance or some kind of Wiccan ceremony this Halloween.

Here it is, a vast wasteland with the silence broken only by the occasional the calls of Belted Kingfishers (and, for all I know, Everdeen’s Mockingjays as well):

San Francisco City Hall Lights Up in Strawberry and Lime for Christmas

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2009

Either it’s National Daiquiri Month and the Powers That Are at City Hall wanted to honor California’s strawberry and lime / avocado growers, or….

…this lighting arrangement is the best They can do to approximate Christmas Red and Christmas Green down in Civic Center. (Way too much yellow in that “green” IMO.)

I’m sure somebody better at Photoshop than I could tone down the riot of color in this photo in order to properly honor Natalis Invicti, or the birthday of baby Jesus, or whatever. But hey, what about the new hires at City Hall? That crew of recent gubernatorial campaign workers seems to be famliar with Photoshop… 

Or not – they didn’t do a very good job it would seem. Oh well, the unaltered photo above will have to do as the record of what Christmas 2009 looked like at City Hall.

Hey, speaking of Christmas, there’ll be no more stars on government trees up in Sonoma. Remember stars atop government Christmas trees? We had a big star on our big tree in Civic Center until about a year ago when it got took down, forever. Oh well.

Merry Christmas!

The Greenest House in America, Right Here in San Francisco

Tuesday, December 9th, 2008

We’re not talking about being classified as having attained LEED (The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Green Building Rating System) status of Certified, Silver, Gold, or Platinum (what will come next – titanium, onyx, or Centurion?).

We’re talking green, fruity green. Like pistachio or lime.

Enjoy. Click to expand:

But at least it matches the place next door!

As seen in San Francisco.

And it could be worse.

The Lime Point Lighthouse near Sausalito: Then and Now.

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

Here’s what the Lime Point Light, located right next to the north tower of the Golden Gate Bridge and close to Cavallo Point, looked like back in the day, courtesy of our friends at the United States Coast Guard. Click to expand:

But technological change and the arrival of the bridge in the 1930′s eventually put this station out of business. It was no picnic working there anyway, what with the occasional freighter collision and the constant rain of orange paint chips

This is how it looks these days, with just the fog station left (and the front gate open on this particular day, for some reason).
