Two abstract shots of buildings in San Francisco which I converted to B&W. I'm still in a sort of monochrome frame of mind I think...Another glorious sunny day here - funny how often that happens as soon as the children return to school.

It's that time of year when the big house spiders suddenly appear - looking for a mate, I'm told. S and I are in a constant state of twitchy fear ...are those legs I can feel on my neck or just a stray hair??? I left a monster on the sitting room wall this morning, hoping P will remove him before I get home this evening...

Interesting photos, CG. A city is full of possibilities for abstract photography, isn't it?

We have problems with brown recluse spiders when it gets too hot. They're dangerous, too; a bite from them is poisonous for humans. They hide, too, hence their name. They prefer dark, secluded places, like the back of your closet or a dark mailbox. Yikes!

Thanks for peeking in at my blog. I'm having such fun with it!

Good shots! I don't mind spiders - they eat flies!

Love the architecture in these shots, especially the San Francisco buildings.
My son has a great shot of the San Francisco skyline on his blog today. Take a look.

I like them both but love the top one. I'm a sucker for repeating patterns.

They look great in B&W.
