Photos From Bay Area Perambulations Today

From top down:

-Elegant steep gable house on 28th Ave near Balboa in SF. How come you never see anything this cool in Dwell Magazine?

-House frame in Vallejo, hip roof, nice little understated dormer. You can learn a lot just studying this nicely-proportioned frame.

-If you remember when skateboards were like this, you are pretty old. In the 40s we used to take apart clamp-on-to-yr.-shoe skates and nail them on a piece of wood. This is in the window at The Purple Skunk Skate on Geary Blvd. in SF.

-Ducati on street in SF. I like seeing the frame, as with the house in Vallejo.

-Bambi Airstream, obviously a new one, Novato

Boy, I love getting out and around, shooting pics.

    I like the top house the best, and next, the skateboard held together with bent nails.

    Lloyd –

    I wouldn't want to be the guy shingling that steep pitch!

    That exposed hip roof also shows how much more detail work is required building a hip Vs simple gable. Great shot – Thanks.

    with the skate nailed on the bottom….Then I'd nail an Orange crate on the 2 X 4……

    Great photos. I love the house at the top – what great proportions. Why don't we see things like that in Dwell? I think because Dwell has an unusual obsession with the soul-less.

    Cheers.
