Photographer (and cherished SFist commenter) Katy German snapped these shots of the Palo Alto Apple store's window today. Fans left a slew of notes, Pixar-based characters, flowers, a comparison to him as our generation's Ernest Hemingway (a dubious claim), and more for Steve Jobs, who died on Wednesday at the age of 56.
