It is 9:15 a.m. and these photos were taken earlier. It is now 52˚ and expected to rise into the 68˚. Details for the next ten days here.
Today’s Block: Shotwell to South Van Ness, 18th to 17th.
I began taking photos at St. Charles School built in 1887. It’s a beautiful old building that was refreshed with new life a few years back thanks to a generous donor who paid for a new paint job. The block is mostly commercial businesses, which were closed, but as usual many people were already out walking to school or on their way to work. The homeless have also occupied parts of South Van Ness in front of the businesses.
With the light good early on, so much the better to sign on to document your block. Don’t wait! Let us know what day and block you would like at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can see a map of all of the blocks here. The blocks in grey are being saved for others who have signed up. Let us save a block for you as well.
