Watchmakers --- Day 7/252

Walk: No
Distance: 0

As Ciwt (along with most Bay Area residents) sat inside with her cats all day she couldn't help but note the irony of all the tech geniuses who have flocked just down the road and apply their talents to the the latest smartwatches and other smartgadgets.  And not making things for hazardour air, homeless people, overcrowded freeways, global warming, etc.

Scrutable Unscrutability --- Day 7/250

Walk: Union Square, Embarcadero Cinema (Burning)
Distance: 2 miles, small yoga

Director Lee Chang-dong's BURNING
Sensual, ugly, beautiful, sinister, humorous, enigmatic, crystal clear.  Burning is all of these, mesmerizingly shape shifting from moment to moment.  Highly intelligent, perfectly acted and shot, Burning is also languidly literary and, at 2.5 hours, not for the impatient or those uninterested in life's ultimate mysteries.  Ciwt loved it.

Big Picture --- Day 7/244

Walk: Pier 24, Ferry Building, Hood
Distance: 4 smokey miles

Pier 24 Photography

Ciwt's picture above is small because, let's face it, she just isn't that big a fan of photography.  And Big is the operable word for Pier 24 Photography which is a once dilapidated 28,000 square foot warehouse that his been renovated (I'll say!) by The Pilara Foundation to be the largest space in the world devoted to photography.  This will change when a European venue opens next year, but then Pier 4 will still be the largest on the Western continent.

Ciwt aside, many, many people love and prefer photography and some collect it. For them Pier 24 is a treasure.  And for anyone interested in beautiful, historical San Francisco sites (this one is on the Bay under the Bay Bridge) and walking destinations Ciwt highly recommends checking out Pier 24 Photography like she did today.  (click for its website)
