The Old Faithful
The world-famous Transamerica Pyramid as seen from the intersection of Columbus and Broadway.
A rainy, balmy, and breezy day at the Sutra Baths. Didn’t stop the tourists, though.
When it just rained
There’s a glow on the pavement.
A bit of blue skies on a smoggy day due to the wildfires up north.
Not all is golden
A foggy sunset at Fort Baker, overlooking the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. An utter lack of golden hour today, sadly.
Max chilling at the Presidio parade grounds.
A few avian creatures taking a much needed bath in the fountains at the Yerba Buena Gardens.
Framed by Nature
An assist from the sunset rays on this patch of flowers near the Dutch Windmill at the western end of Golden Gate Park.
Big Wide City
The classic view of San Francisco facing due northeast standing at historic Twin Peaks.
Port of SF
One Ferry Building, the glorious tourist-trap filled with many great food shops.
Rather than heading up Telegraph Hill I think from afar affords a better view of Coit Towers
The Old Before New
At the wide intersection of Washington Street and The Embarcadero.
The Arelious Walker Stairway in the Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood, one of the many mosaic steps art installations scattered about the city.
Soon to be Prime Real Estate
The infamous and disused Hunters Point Shipyard, owned by the United States Navy.
One of two famous windmills in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, this one the Dutch Windmill is located on the western end overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
These days to escape from Alcatraz all you’d need to do is purchase a ferry ticket.
In nearly every main street and side street in Chinatown are commissioned murals. This particular one is on the corner of Commercial and Grant.
The Pursuit of Happyness
The elementary school in Chinatown where the movie ‘The Pursuit of Happyness’ was filmed.
Looking out towards North atop the entrance to the Stockton Street Tunnel in Chinatown.
You Did Well
The peaceful and tranquil Sierra Point.
This alleyway in Chinatown has got all the colors.
The new soon to be opened Bay Bridge eastern span. I especially love how the entire tower glows in contrast to the amber sky.
Skyscrapers and high-rises make interesting corridors.
The hiking trails at the Marin Headlands are some of the most scenic, all because of the Golden Gate.
AT&T Park is a baseball stadium where the cheap seats has the best view.
The iconic San Francisco skyscrapers as seen from Pioneer Park.
Gate of Gold
When it's pitch dark 1am, the only thing that glows is the Golden Gate.
The Bay Bridge eastern span makes for quite a stunning backdrop to take your boat out to.
It used to be quite dangerous coming up atop Potrero Hill to get this famous shot of the San Francisco skyline. Thanks to gentrification, I took this shot while three white girls sat in front of their house chatting.
Bay Bridge Colors
To get this shot I had to trespass on United States Navy grounds and wade through unkempt local vegetation. Worth it? Back then it was.
Around the Horn
Point Bonita Lighthouse is open to the public for only a few short hours during daylight. I manage to take a quick snap before all the sightseers went across the access bridge.
Back when i first started photography I thought light-streaks from doing long-exposure shots were so cool.
The Golden Gate Bridge may garner the most tourist eyes, but as a feat of engineering the Bay Bridge holds more allure to me.
The Golden Gate Bridge bathing in fog is so uniquely San Francisco.
I love how they’ve strung lanterns across throughout Chinatown.
The shot of postcards. Of all the wondrous sights San Francisco has to offer, for me nothing beats this view up onTwin Peaks. Composed as so that it captures the iconic hairpin turn.
This, is our "welcome to San Francisco" banner.
A long view down famed Market Street from its genesis at One Ferry Building.
It took them awhile, but finally the entire pedestrian path of the Bay Bridge eastern span is connected from end to end. I've been waiting for it to happen so I can go shoot.
I managed to get a bit of Pier 14 in this shot.
Wear a Flower in Your Hair
Some fittingly lovely flowers at the Embarcadero Center.
Sailing, Take me Away
Some recreational sailboaters at foggy Point Bonita.
Towers of Light
The thing sure is beautiful when it's all lit up.
Pier 14, the weird (to me) promenade that juts outward into the Bay to afford sightseers a slightly closer look at the Bay Bridge. The opposite view isn't so bad, too.
Some canopy for your leisure stroll.
San Francisco Skyline
All the landmarks, all at once. San Francisco's beauty really comes alive at night.
It's slightly odd going back to old landmarks and finding the new Salesforce Tower adorning the landscape. A thing to get used to.
I'm really digging the arch-themed architectural design in the newly refurbished Ferry Building. A solid mix of classic building materials.
Comfort Woman Memorial Statue
San Francisco's honoring of those who have suffered so much. One can find the Comfort Woman statues at St. Mary's Square Park.
California and Powell
At the intersection of California and Powell, it’s a four way stop instead of traffic lights. So, either move quickly, or like me have a friend to spot your six.
