S.F. Pairs

Am fond of this set of cobbled-together door-and-window overhang-contrivances. They can be found and admired on the north side of 17th Street near Dolores in San Francisco.

Am fond of these ficus trees marching down the sidewalk. They are growing out of their small squares of bare earth on Treat near 18th Street in the Mission.

Am fond of the art-nouveau flourishes on the fire escape of this anonymous concrete hi-rise. It is downtown on Post near Powell.

Am fond of these sheer drapes on Haight Street. Starbursts or chrysanthemums?

Am fond of this hand-lettered web address in a shop window on Haight (though not fond at all of the paintings displayed in the window and for sale on the site).
