scenes from the weekend

This should really be called scenes from my Sunday… I forgot to charge my camera battery and have nothing to show from exploring Cow Hollow and the Marina district on Saturday. It was a beautiful day, and there were so many boats out. I’m on a mission to make friends with some boat owners so we can take advantage of them later this summer. :) On Sunday we met some friends for a fantastic brunch at Mission Beach Cafe before walking along the Embarcadero down to the SF Giants County Fair. A great day for riding rides and fair food. More photos in my photostream.

marion cotillard for vogue

Marion Cotillard is as lovely as ever in this shoot for Vogue in the French countryside. She’s been one of my favorite actresses since La Vie en Rose. And even though she barely makes an appearance in the trailer, I’m looking forward to Inception. (Because honestly, I’ll watch anything Leonardo DiCaprio is in.)

locals and tourists

Awesome set of Geotaggers’ World Atlas maps broken down by locals and tourists from Eric Fischer. Blue points on the map are photos taken by locals, red points photos taken by tourists. The results show that London, New York, and San Francisco have the most local photographers (or at least ones that geotag their photos). Really neat concept, with a beautiful result. New York would look amazing printed large and framed, don’t you think?

scenes from the weekend

Another glorious weekend in San Francisco. We had a few people over Saturday evening, and spent the early part of the day getting the apartment presentable for guests (aka cleaning and unpacking). I know, I know– we’ve been here for a month, but we finally found a bookshelf and dresser this week so now all the random book and clothing boxes are gone. Hooray! I also planted a little herb garden and some flowers on our deck. On Sunday, we took the Muni out to Ocean Beach for Nolan’s first view of the Pacific. It was crazy foggy there, like walking in a cloud. A quick run to the library to pick up a stack of books on hold before meeting some friends for a beer, where we ran into a couple who also recently moved from Durham! What a small world. How was your weekend?
