Skylines, Museums, and Fog: 10 photos from San Francisco

Posted in: Photos, Top Ten

I’m getting a little too comfortable with San Francisco. We go so often – probably a half-dozen times a year or so, that I’ve started feeling like I take it for granted. That city has an astounding amount of beauty and quirkiness (and just plain weirdness) to offer, but I’ve grown so used to it, I often to neglect to take photos.

I tried to rectify that a little on this last trip. I dragged my camera everywhere. I even – shudder – took a few photos inside a museum (it was for the good of the blog, so I hope you’ll forgive me). Here’s a recap of our trip, in ten photos.

  1. Quiet contemplation at the De Young Museum.

    I am absurdly happy with how this came out.

  2. Row houses, San Francisco.

    I used to want to live in one of these so badly.

  3. Rand at Muir Beach.

    This is San Franciscan "beach wear."

  4. Lauren channels me. It’s like Single White Female, except less murder-y, and one of us is married.

    She's wearing my hat. And my jacket. And my glasses. And they look cute on her. Crap.

  5. Electric car power station, Intercontinental Hotel, San Francisco.

    I'm going to ignore the fact that most electricity comes from burning fossil fuels, otherwise I will cry.

  6. Mannequin with substantial global endowments, Tiburon, California.

    I wonder what on earth they must look like in Los Angeles.

  7. The Golden Gate Bridge in the fog (or, you know, just the Golden Gate Bridge. BECAUSE IT IS ALWAYS FOGGY.)

  8. Idyllic hill in the late afternoon, Bernal Heights.

    I resisted the urge to Photoshop Godzilla in the background, but wouldn't he be adorable up there?

  9. The Wall at the Facebook Headquarters, Palo Alto, CA.

    There is a wall at Facebook that you can literally write on.

  10. The same old nonsense, this time in Marin County.

    Eww. Yucky.

  • Did you meet Uncle Joey??

      My tendencies have always leaned towards Uncle Jesse. Or failing that, I’d settle for Danny Tanner. Uncle Joey would only be a consideration if we needed to repopulate the earth after some sort of catastrophe. And even then … ew.

  • I would appreciate a Godzilla photoshopped into that picture much more.

  • Thanks for sharing. I was supposed to go to SF last weekend but could not because of a sick kitty. And no, that’s not a euphemism. My can had surgery. 😉
    I’ve always loved those row houses too and I agree about Godzilla.
    Did you actually visit Facebook?

  • S.A.

    The first photo is gorgeous! May I ask what camera you use?

    • Everywhereist

      A Canon Rebel EOS that I barely know how to use. 🙂

  • I love your comment with the first photo. Sometimes a little serendipity goes a long way. I’m glad to know I’m not the only one that totally lucks into great photos.

  • There is something wonderful about being understood. My writer's group meets about once a month. We mostly eat and (if time allows) talk about our projects. This time we chatted about my book, which was released last week by Public Affairs and pairs well with French pastries and hot Cheetos. 🥐
One of my dear colleagues looked at me and said, "Did you sign my book? No you didn't, you witch." And I realized I'd be lost without these jerks. <3

  • By far, one of the coolest things about getting published is that I get to meet some amazing writers. Super excited to crack into Jo Piazza's How To Be Married after hearing her speak. #bookstagram #inmybag
