"Silver Street"

I have San Francisco on the brain. I can't wait to get there. As I was rolling through the thousands of pictures I took last spring, I spotted these right-after-the-storm shots I took, around the really hilly neighborhoods, around Lombard Street in particular. What struck me was the dark stormy sky in the distance and that fantastic silvery reflection on the wet streets. An artist friend describes San Francisco as "wonderful, squinty, California light" and I know exactly what she means.
