I'm glad I looked at the updates before shutting down for the night. That's a great collage! And you chose to show some of the nicest ones.

Going to bed now. Have a lovely Wednesday, Jim :).

Wow..thanks. I love learning something new about my hometown! I have been in SF for thirty years, and I don't remember this lane. It must have been put in after I left. I will visit it the next time I'm in BeanTown. Of course I'll never forget Arch Street Church! All those Ash Wednesdays!!
