James Tissot was born on 15 October 1836 in Nantes, near the Loire River in western France. He died in Doubs, France, on 8 August 1902.
I visited the Legion of Honor to view James Tissot's splendid paintings. I took photographs of some of his paintings, as seen below. His pictures were presented at the Legion of Honor's James Tissot: Fashion & Faith exhibition. The exhibition was open to the public from 12 October 2019 through 9 February 2020.

I decided to participate in the celebration of the opening of the bridge for bicyclists, along with approximately 3,500 other bicycle riders. At 10:00 a.m. I rode my bicycle from the eastern terminus of the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge across the bridge. I then arrived at Point San Quentin, the western terminus of the bridge which is adjacent to San Quentin State Prison. I later cycled back across the bridge to Richmond.
