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?

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

    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.
