These recent days of mist and rain reminded me of pictures I took a few months ago in and around San Francisco (at the Palace of Fine Arts, Civic Center, and the Bay Bridge, respectively). They all have a dark melancholy about them that seems to fit the current mood quite nicely.

“A city of squalls, foggy mornings, intervals of blue and white so immaculate the eyes ached. A city of readers, coffee drinkers, kissers on sidewalks, sad faces at wet windows. A city of umbrellas, woolen scarves, raincoats, cigarettes, wineglasses, cognac.”
-Keith Miller, The Book of Flying
Stumbled upon the above evocative quote and print on the Etsy shop of Kristin Kemper this afternoon–lovely! Feeling the whimsical today, from heart-shaped raindrops to wellies-as-vases to wellies tartan courtesy of J.Crew.
