Mission San Francisco de Asís, more commonly known as Mission Dolores, is the oldest surviving structure in San Francisco - the original building in the foreground of this photo was dedicated in 1791.
Inspired Sunday for more photos on this theme, and Our World Tuesday for assorted shots from around the world.

On Sunday afternoon we were above 61° F (16° C). By Tuesday night temperatures dropped below -3° F (-19.4° C), and Wednesday night was -11° F (-24° C) - that's a 72° F (40° C) drop in a couple of days. The cold doesn't bother little Socks as he's got a thick coat, although he still can't stay out too long because it hurts his paws. But Laika's fur is very short, so it's time for her to start wearing her new winter coat when we take her out.

Here are some more night photos from the United States Air Force Academy this weekend, showing scenes more commonly photographed in daylight - this time it's the B-52 bomber.

Since my new camera is suppose to take good photos in low light, I went to the United States Air Force Academy yesterday evening to try some photos of the famous Cadet Chapel. I was very pleased with the results - my old camera wouldn't have worked without a tripod, and even then it would have had trouble with the exposures and autofocus.

In San Francisco you can tour a submarine that saw service in World War Two, the USS Pampanito. It's worth seeing if you have any interest in these things, and you'll gain more of an appreciation for the men who served on them in close quarters.
