I started the month with a picture of a woman collecting empty bottles (Theme Day was Empty) and I conclude this month with a picture of collecting empty cardboard boxes for recycling. You can see those pickup trucks collecting empty cardboards a lot in the city.

Today is "Bastille Day, a French holiday. Before I repeat what the holiday is about, you can read about it on Wikipedia
The balloons mark the entry to an Irish Bar located in or close to the French Quarter in Downtown SF were they were celebrating it.
Today I realized that actually yesterday was the first anniversary of my DailyPhoto Blog. One year ago, on the second day, I uploaded a picture of the same location to this Blog. So I thought, as long as the Bar will celebrate this and as long as I will keep the Blog alive, I'll celebrate my yearly anniversary with a picture of the balloons of Bastille Day celebration.

Please excuse that I took one of the pictures from yesterday and uploaded it for today's post.
I wanted to write one more thing about Joan Baez at Stern Grove, and needed a picture from the event.
She greeted the Iranian people, dedicated two songs to them and when singing "We shall overcome" she shared the stage with Tahmoures Pournazeri from Iran. Watch the following videos on Youtube:

I just came back from the Stern Grove Festival. Today Blame Sally a local band was playing first and then Joan Baez! I had to go and see her, she's such a legend! And the place is beautiful too. It was packed, 10.000 people, they were even sitting all the way up in the woods. See next days (July 13th post)

I saw the dog and a lady setting up the table and signs at the Jazz Festival. You can barely see it but there were $1 bills stuck in the dogs collar. I took a picture and then she called me over for help and I watched her table for a couple of minutes. That was my contribution.

Today is Theme Day empty. The picture shows one of a couple of people in this city looking for empty bottles or cans in garbage cans. They bring them to places for recycling and make a little bit of money out of it.
