During a recent jaunt to San Francisco, we were attempting to cross the street when a hurried driver came rushing into the crosswalk. In a scene out of a comic book, our hero stopped traffic — much to the chagrin of the motorist. :)

Ha! Only in SF. Love it.
Ramey, yes, I love the whimsical happenings SF offers. It’s a pleasure to connect – sounds as though you had quite the adventure in Jordan and beyond.
That explains crime rates: superheroes are directing traffic… ;)
Cute comeback, Alessandro! :)
in a nano second, you got the perfect shot!
Yippee – sometime a shutterbug’s rewarded for having a camera in tow all of the time. :)
Shades of the Big Bang. Where are super heroes when you need them most?? Great photo Tricia. Virginia
Thanks Virginia, but I must admit, what is the Big Bang as it relates to superheroes? I think I’ve been living away overseas for too long, for I’ve lost touch with American pop culture. :(
Great capture. There is never a superhero when I need one. Thanks Tricia.
:) Sounds as though you need to take a trip to the Pacific NW and San Francisco, Mark. We spotted a handful of them in Seattle too.
That is hilarious… glad you captured it :)
Only in SF :) hahaha
Bashar, the chance superhero meeting made our day. :) We saw a few superheros in Seattle as well. My cousin, a Seattleite, said one in particular was getting well known.
Only in California ;). And Gotham City/Metropolis of course ;)
Way too funny!!!
The happening definitely had us laughing for a few hours.
