Ever since Stella K told self about the Garry Winogrand exhibit at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, self has ached to go.
She was about to go yesterday, but then she got hung up with gardening.
She went today, though. What a gorgeous day it was in the City!
It will be clear from the above snapshot that self was doing the dangerous thing again: snapping photos while driving. But she just couldn’t give up the chance to document the day, the excellent weather, the freeway signs, the San Francisco skyline, and of course the traffic!
The Garry Winogrand exhibit was fascinating. Thank you for telling self about it, Stella K! She was fascinated by Winogrand, his “anti-journalistic” stance, his perceptivity about crowds, his alive-ness to facial expressions of people he passed on the street. On the audio tour, his son is quoted as saying that when Winogrand would take his children on outings, he was constantly taking pictures of people they passed, and so it took a very very long time to get from Point A to Point B. But Winogrand’s son said that he was so accustomed to his father’s behavior that he regarded it as entirely normal.
As self was leaving the 4th floor, where the Winogrand exhibit was, she decided to snap a picture of the stairs:
Afterwards, as self was walking back to the 5th and Mission Garage, she decided to walk through the Metreon. She would have made it out without damage if she hadn’t been attracted by a colorful sign saying Cako. When she went up close to investigate, she saw tubs of ice cream! And she decided to try the vanilla salt with caramel swirls. She brought her ice cream outside, to the Yerba Buena gardens, and luxuriated in the sunshine and the pigeons. It was such a gorgeous day! Self reflected that she is so lucky to be alive, and living where she does, with pretty easy access to the gorgeousness of San Francisco.
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
