It is 7 a.m., 56° and headed to 70°. Details for today and the next ten days are here.

Wandering around public infrastructure with a camera first thing in the morning felt a little clandestine and I earned myself a couple of funny looks (being brown doesn’t help). However, like most folks in the city, I’ve got a love-hate relationship with Muni and it was a delight to see it in an alternative setting. By the time I had gotten there, a large fraction of the buses had already left. Still—at least from where I was looking, it seems that Muni buses have as much trouble getting going first thing in the morning as everyone else.

The block: 17th to Mariposa, Bryant to Hampshire.
