This is the other side of the square with the St. Francis Hotel in the background. I couldn't help photographing it because in front are the hugest tibouchina urvelliana (Princess Flower) I have seen in a long while. They are well-pruned and amazingly healthy. Such profusion of blooms.
Here is a row of brugmansias flanking the square on each side. I think this is one of the most photogenic examples of public landscaping I have seen. Again, they are really well-cared for, and you can actually sit under them too.
Some tour buses and the back end of a cable car.
A cup of coffee under a tibouchina... Maybe next time.
A glassware display at the entrance to Chinatown.
The intersection of Kearny and Market with streetcars running along Market.
A sunny Christmas...
