A simple picture, but it speaks volumes to me - It's Christmas Time in the City!
This lamp post is top Nob Hill. The Fairmont Hotel is on the left; the Mark Hopkins Hotel the tall building peeking out from behind the almost-bare tree. Powell Street, with it's famous cable car line, is one short block down California Street. Turn right onto Powell (a steep down grade--if you're wearing high heels, you might tip over ) and walk 4 short blocks and you'll arrive at Union Square, the hub of the shopping district, lavishly decorated for the holidays.
Music is in the air -- maybe you'll even hear some Silver Bells.
