Monday Mellow Yellows - Yellow San Francisco Home - May 27, 2013


One of the delights of living in the San Francisco area - and one of the
reasons I always have my camera with me - is the wonderful abundance
of beautiful Victorian homes.  Even many other houses are painted in
bright and beautiful colors that make you stop your car, pull over and
get out your camera.  I will miss those during my six months in India
but, thankfully, there is so much in that enormous country that I enjoy
photographing.  While I'm there sweltering in the heat, I'll remember
that I've complained my whole time at home that I haven't been warm
enough.  Right now, it's 61 degrees in Daly City, California and 90
degrees in Mumbai, India!




I am participating in 


Add your yellow photo to join in the fun.

  1. What a Victorian, and your gorgeous header photo of abundant acacia could also be a lovely Mellow Yellow post. Lucky you to be going to India! I am sure you will have many, many colorful photos for us.

    1. I love yellow, Sara and, one of my first purchases, when I moved to San Francisco nearly 35 years ago, was a water color of a yellow Victorian with white shutters. I wanted to buy one. Of course, I could never afford that.

      Now in India, in Mumbai, with it's twenty million people and monsoon torrents.

    1. It's always fun to go down a street of Victorians with each one painted a different cheerful color, with contrasting trim. There is a huge market in Victorian house painting!
