Sunday in the City.

Happiest of New Years to everyone! I hope y'all are off to a good, optimistic start and have had some time to rest and refuel a little bit after the holiday madness! This isn't technically 'Sunday' in the City, but a look at my New Year's Eve, spent in San Francisco's slightly mysterious and exotic Chinatown. Peking duck at Great Eastern, and midnight cocktails at the Li Po Lounge. Kitschy, festive and frivolous, just how I like my New Year's. It's great to be back, and I look forward to sharing a creative and inspiring 2009!

I missed you over the holiday, but am glad that people took breaks (I sure did). I love the gritty quality of these images - they have a mystery to them that is really intriguing.

Ohhhhh! So pretty, I feel like I am there, giggling and taking photos, so great.

Oh, it's great to see a Sunday (or Wednesday night) in the City post! As always, beautiful photos, and, of course, I love the one about paper moons!

Fun! The best New Year's Eve I ever spent was in Chinatown/North Beach, beginning at Spec's, crawling to Buddha and Li Po, then finishing the night at the old Washbag.

it was a fun night, and i even wore false eyelashes and a fall (wig) to be silly.

raya - it was my crummy point & shoot and i think the setting was off, but i liked the grittiness for the subject matter, so it worked out okay.

chez shoes - a perfect dive bar crawl! i haven't been to spec's in ages!

Oh, did you drink any Li-Po specials? The fanciest drink I've ever had -- definitely something to try (and to behold).
