The deep purple color of this flower was so intense it was almost difficult to look at.
My hotel near the San Francisco airport was in Burlingame. The city of Burlingame has created a shorebird sanctuary and it was along this trail I was walking in the early morning. I got to see a wide variety of waterfowl and got only a few decent photos.
I also took a short video when I remembered my phone also does that:
Technically this could be part of last week’s San Francisco series, because I did see this while I was out and about walking there. But it’s not that this was in San Francisco – it’s that this was something beautiful that caught my eye while I was out for a walk. I see so many people out walking but with their eyes on their phone or with headphones on and not really looking at the world around them. I think those people probably don’t always notice the random lovely things around them. I do know that at least one person stopped momentarily as I took this photo wondering if this was some landmark. If it is, I don’t know that. I just know I thought it was a beautiful fountain and I wanted to share it with you.
