Cold Winter Light

The sun was coming up behind Mission High School as I was doing laundry Thursday morning.

Despite all the cold and rain of December, some of the ginkgo trees in my neighborhood are holding onto their leaves, which seem not to have finished turning yellow yet  (even though as far back as early November the ginkgo trees in Golden Gate Park were beginning to drop their bright yellow leaves, as seen here).  

Having stowed the laundry, I set off  for the produce market and took the last picture of the morning (palm trees on Dolores and the Gothic-ornamented roof-line of a 1920s apartment house). The sun was getting higher and soon the light in San Francisco would not be so interesting anymore.
