UPDATE: Oh, CCSF has a paramedic training program here – my bad. See Comments.
Maybe there’s a good reason for this, IDK:
Grove and Ashbury, John Adams Campus, CCSF.
Not a good look for this department, in particular
For some reason dese boids live in Frisco’s northeast but then commute southwest for feeding on a daily basis.
So in the morning, you see them over the Western Addition going southwest and then in the evening, you see them heading back northwest, as here over the Golden Gate Park Panhandle:
I haven’t ever seen this many in one flight outside of the Coit Tower / FInancial District area.
I went looking for them about a decade ago – this was the view from the Filbert Steps:
It seems there are more birds now, but they’re not hanging out in one big flock anymore. That’s my impression anyway.
Anywho, just recently, I saw about ten crows chasing four red-green conures over the Panhandle – I’ve never seen that before either.
Look to the Skies for Signs and Wonders.
Note human, for scale:
One assumes it might have something to do with this, Contract 2419J?
As seen a few days back – that square, that’s your elevator car. Haven’t seen it in a while:
And here’s the close-up color version, from all the way back in 2004:
(I remember thinking how the workers in the basket should have appeared clearer in this photo. I guess I was super-far away, oh well.)
In closing, take that, Great Pyramid. Pwned:
Here’s the latest on this one:
Critical Mass window smasher was wearing T-shirt advocating non-violence by Evan Sernoffsky
Oh, I read it as The Union is Our Strength. And I thought, oh, I guess that makes sense.
But the real quote is much better.
Anyway, here’s the front of the shirt – it depicts the UFW eagle morphing into a white winged dove* with a sprig of laurel:
Anyway, this is some excellent blogging from Evan Sernoffsky…
*Well, only a regular dove, but it’s just like the white-winged dove.
Well, I suppose it’s three peds, actually. Now let’s see how they do:
The two peds on the left act properly and the jogger ped does not.
There’s room for improvement at this intersection, SFGov/SFMTA.
You know the Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill, from Peru, right?
As seen from the Filbert Steps, 94133 on Telegraph Hill more than a decade ago:
And of course, you know our eucalyptus trees, from Australia, right?
Put them together and you’ve got this – a Southern Hemisphere smorgasbord, all the way up here in the Northern Hemisphere:
G’day, mi Amigo…
Or are these platform heels? (One supposes that’s a subcategory of high heel, but one doesn’t know for sure)
– The #1 occupation for those with a foot fetish is … shoe salesman, just saying.
– I talked with a shoe salesman in Union Square one time. He side his “primary job” as a salesperson was to determine if the customer wanted to buy some new kicks TODAY. “Women will go shoe shopping to kill time, while waiting for a bus.” OTOH, if you told him that you were a serious shopper, he’d “have all the time in the world for you.” That’s life on commish, I s’pose.
