The city, San Francisco or most any city, is full of small, fleeting treasures. Riches are everywhere—little vignettes of joy, intrigue, and ephemeral pleasure that compel me to click the shutter of my camera. Many are haphazard collections of life’s serendipity. Most affirm my belief that the cosmic powers that run this universe of ours have a very good sense of humor.

A couple stands at a street-corner intersection. I am on the other side. We both wait to cross the same crosswalk of the same street. If my calculations are correct, our paths will cross in about thirty seconds. At the point of our meeting mid-street, perhaps we'll exchange glances or maybe we'll pretend that we can't see one another. Maybe our eyes may dart to the side to catch a glance as we pass by to the other side. And then, within moments our positions will be reversed. I will be over there and they will be over here. It will be a slight shift in the cosmos, an exchange of space and energy.
A delivery truck speeds by. A man crosses the street with a bag lunch. In the distance, a woman and child hold hands. In the foreground, a tattoo parlor waits for its next customer, reflecting the convergence of activities in its shop window.
