My friend Chris takes amazing pictures of the Bay Area. Perhaps you have seen the books he recently published with Steve Rotman, Bay Area Graffiti and San Francisco Street Art? Check out his Web site too, or go see his photos in person at 111 Minna at the end of the month. Even though his bread and butter is party photography, I like it so much better when he's off the clock, as it were, and captures the things that make life here so glorious. Like BART symmetry.

My kitty cat Orson was diagnosed with inoperable cancer just a few months after I adopted him earlier this year, and my instinct tells me that he is winding down for good this week. He was relatively bright-eyed and bushy-tailed when Dan and Carol came over yesterday though, and Dan posted some lovely pictures from the visit. You can see the rest of them as well as some other recent Flickr favorites of mine right over here.
A most tantalizing image: a shot of Leonard Cohen's mic before his show at the Paramount Monday night. I was not able to attend, but at least I have everyone else raving endlessly about how amazing this tour of his has been. For more of my recent favorites on Flickr please click here.
Also, the SF Art Institute's awesome lecture program of visiting artists and scholars this spring continues tonight with a talk by Turner-Prize-nominated artist and filmmaker Isaac Julien. Much of his work grapples with issues of race and sexuality, and with his subjects ranging from Langston Hughes to Frantz Fanon it promises to be a fascinating evening.
This is that thing I do periodically, where I point you to some of my recent favorites from my Flickr friends' photostreams. Unsurprisingly I follow a lot of artists including my long-time favorite comic book writer/artist Paul Pope, and this logo all by itself from his upcoming graphic novel has me salivating with anticipation even though it isn't due out until next year. In typical Pope fashion he's been dropping hints about it since oh 2006.
This is just me testing out the ability to blog a photo from Flickr, using this nifty picture from the London Transport Museum. And while I'm at it I might as well point you to more of my favorite images from my contacts list, which you can see here. I heart Flickr.
