A Couple of Days

A short visit to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art last week had me looking outdoors as well as in.  From the glass-walled corridor on the fifth floor linear downtown buildings piled up behind each other and only their tops gave them any individual identities. 

The sculpture court had more rounded shapes, real or shadow.

Another day found me back in downtown Oakland for lunch at Bakesale Betty's, whose wonderful fried chicken and spicy coleslaw I make a point of having whenever we come back home.  You can often see Betty herself in her blue wig with her child on her hip. The wait is never more than a few minutes, despite the length of the line on the street.

Take-out or eat-out; there are no tables in either of her locations, but recycled ironing boards on the sidewalk serve very well if the weather permits.

And finally a couple of shots I couldn't resist, next door to Betty's and across the street.  From the 1930s to the 2010s within a block.
