On my way to visit a few galleries Thursday evening walked by the Apple Store in SF and wished to share some photos. Hundreds of people paying their respects surround the sidewalk shrine that is now extending upwards covering the glass walls of the Apple Store with personal notes.

The passing of Steve Jobs is felt like a weight here – Silicon Valley has lost one of its own. The public persona of Steve Jobs was so personable, like he was making each object of design specifically for each one of us. And each season with a new design – with his larger than life presentations. I’ve personally never quite experienced anything like this – a community feeling and expression of this sense of loss with informal memorials of flowers, notes, offerings of fruit (apples) and more. Truley the passing of someone great and I, like the others say as one “We’ll miss you, Steve, your life is an inspiration.”
