Believe it or not I am still digesting the trip we took last autumn and winter to Japan, New Zealand and the Bay area. It was such an intense and closely packed time, and quite a long trip too. I am hoping to roll out a few photos from that time in the coming weeks. I'm happy enough in London but seem to be spending a lot of time on routine stuff and family matters. And babysitting. (That's just one of the twins really, below, with a mirror. I suspect that it is the kind of peaceful chilled twin she would like to have, instead of the one she really does have, who grabs all her stuff as he charges past at top speed.)
Anyway, these photos below are from late last November, and were taken coming down Nob Hill in San Francisco. I have never seen such a lot of selfie-takers! I could have photographed them for hours but didn't want to block the traffic!
The first time I visited San Francisco I was in my mid twenties, and in those days it still retained a lot of its hippie past - well, it was more recent in those days. You never knew if you were going to discover that your accommodation had communal composting toilets for instance (and yes, I am glad they've stopped doing that).
And nobody had even heard of selfies.
