SF Public Library

SF Public Library, originally uploaded by Itinerant.

The top floor of the main SFPL (San Francisco Public Library). The glass roof of the central lobby is shaped like a nautilus shell.

Its probably one of the few places in SF where people of all kinds congregate, making it a great hook-up joint. :)

It's a great library and a beautiful building.

Everyone knows it rains in San Francisco, but I dont remember seeing too many rainy day pics. So, I made some.

Cold and wet, wet and cold.

Antidote - Hot decaf Mocha and Black Chocolate cake.

Im not a Great Food Photographer like NewYork808 (motto: I aim to make you lick your screen), but here's what makes me warm and fuzzy.

Ahh, the rain is back, thanks to the Pineapple Express from Havai'i.

Lets see - new metrological term Ive learned: Cutoff Low.

Means, there is a low pressure system kinda stuck off the coast of the continent, just kinda stuck in the pacific. Not goin anywhere, just lost kinda.

While its hanging out, its feeding off the flow of moisture from hawai'i, sending rain to the california coast.

Ergo, rain for the next coupla weeks.
*sigh* iPhoto. Piece of sheet.

I come home from being out all day, the mac has downloaded the OSX 10.3.8 update for me, helpful lil bugger that it is. Normally, Im not the trusting sort - I figure, what the heck, eh? I click the button to install and reboot.

Of course, I plug in the camera to offload my images (cuz naturally - OSX doesnt know what to fucking do with my cheap all-in-one memory card reader, that WINDOWS handles with no #*#%%$%# problems) and iPhoto launches ... and does zip except produces the spinning beachball of death for half an hour.

Of course.

Im rebuilding the iPhoto library now (2 hours and counting), with no guarantee that it will work properly. I dont like doing tech shit on my day off. I dont wanna think that hard, gottdammit.
Im feening for Irfanview. I have NOT found a good Mac graphic viewer (theyre all mediocre at best).

Naurally, iPhoto is considered the best graphic viewer for the Mac.


Im in the market for a good laptop .. and shit like this makes me not want to get a Mac.
I got some great images today.

Sweet wet images of San Francisco.

B&W, color - even some Mocha.

But of course, I cant show 'em.. for the reason stated above.

You can tell a Bay Area native by what they call the police.


*peal of laughter*

I swear to gawd, sometimes its like listening to some old Dolomite movie or 70's TV show around here.. :)
