Serendipitous Art: Paint and Street Markings

Recently on business in the Haight in San Francisco I had a little time between appointments to wander the streets. I found this patch of spilled blue paint run over by a tire atop a bright yellow street marking of some kind. I thought it an interesting abstract composition. Unintended art, serendipitous art.

The Cocktail Glass Collection: Murio's Trophy Room, San Francisco

On business in San Francisco recently I found myself with a little time to kill in the Haight. I came across Murio's Trophy Room, at 1811 Haight St. I snapped a photo of the bar's neon sign to add to my growing collection of photos of neon cocktail glasses in front of bars.

Wines I'm Making: First sulfur spraying 2014

Finally got around to doing the first sulfur spraying in the vineyard this year. Everything looks good, but normally I like to have done the first spraying a little earlier. The weather has been cool, clear, and mostly dry, though, so mildew risk has been low, and now the earliest growth on the vines is protected. Looking at the plants as I worked, I notice that the Sangiovese buds are just starting to open. The Cabernet vines, as usual, are behind but should be flowering soon.

[Naturally, we had an unexpected rain shower the following day, so I'll have to do it all over again....]
