San Francisco Glimpses, Again

I wanted to share a little (teeny tiny?) bit more from San Francisco.

Also …?

Hello Friday, it’s nice to see you!

Cheese Shop

I love cheese, and the cheese shop in the Ferry Building was adorable!

I didn’t buy anything there, but I’m sure I would have if I was visiting for longer.

I wish I was brave enough to be a street photographer.  I know street photographers rarely make any money, but I love candid “real” moments like the one captured at the cheese shop.

Embarcadero Walkway

I took the above photo at the Embarcadero.

I wanted to eavesdrop on the couple’s conversation.

I bet it went something like this:

“Who was that crazy woman back there laying on the ground?  Do you think we should call the cops  Maybe 911?”

View from Twin Peaks, San Francisco, at night

The coldest I’ve ever been was one night, at Twin Peaks, in San Francisco.

I was wearing about five layers of borrowed clothing in an attempt to keep warm.  I had so many layers on, I could barely move.  I looked like the abominable snowman.  I was still absolutely freezing!  The wind was so strong, I had trouble standing still in it.  I ended up bracing myself under a retaining wall to take the above photo.  The loopy circle-ish thing on the left side of the photo are the headlights/brake lights of cars going up and down the road to Twin Peaks.

(I really didn’t think any of my long exposure photos would be salvageable with wind like that, but the above shot is kind of cool.)

Probably the most beautiful light I’ve ever photographed was during sunset at Sutro Baths.

The light was golden and it was magical.

    Cheese! I love cheese, too; I just wish I could eat more of it.

    And I wish I was as happy with Friday as you seem to be, but…no. *sigh*

    Don’t know when we’ll get back to San Francisco, but now making notes to go to Twin Peaks and Sutro Baths. We’ve been to the City many times, but never to these spots. Last time we finally explored Coit Tower. So much to do and see in that amazing town! I adore all of these photos.

      There’s so much to do in SF. Sutro Baths is very windy and cold … Twin Peaks has an amazing view of the city, but is even colder! Bring a coat! : )

    Looks like you are a street photographer if laying down on the job is part of that. And your lighting is exciting.
