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.

  • 11 years. You have made my life what it is, Rand.
  • When you find out that @britneymuller has surreptitiously been taking photos of your butt on her phone.
Me: Why.
Her: Because it's perfect.
*swoon*
❤️❤️❤️
  • Hair toss, check my nails. Baby how you feeling? Thirty-nine as hell.
  • Me: You cannot go to sleep at 10pm EST.
Him: Watch me.
  • I didn't do nearly all that I set out to do today. But I had a lovely dinner thanks to this man and some excellent out of town guests. So perhaps the measure of a day isn't always about that damn checklist. (Maybe. Ask me again tomorrow when all the stress hits me. 🤔😅)
  • You can't expect things to look *exactly* like the picture in the cookbook. But sometimes they do anyway. #alisonroman #diningincookbook #diningin #cocoabananabread #instadesserts #baking
  • Here it is, folks. The paperback edition of my book is out today. The hardcover came out more than two years ago, so it's wonderful to know that this story of mine still has life and is, gasp, still selling copies. Don't miss the book that Lauren Graham called "the travel companion you'll be happy you brought along" and that some guy on Twitter said was "immature and stupid." It's available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Indiebound. #bookstagram #summerreading #bookworms
  • This lady. ❤️❤️❤️ So proud of her.
  • HAPPY LAUNCH DAY!! I really want to curl up in bed with this amazing novel today, but I can't - for an amazing reason. Because I'm going to be at the Lake Forest Park location of Third Place Books tonight, discussing it with the author, my dear friend @andreadunlop. Lady, I'm so proud of you. ❤️ ❤️❤️ #bookstagram #summerreading
  • Baking in an AirBnB is always an adventure. I didn't have a measuring cup for the flour so I eyeballed it, and had to use a wine bottle as a rolling pin to make these handpies. Not my best work, but @demeritt and @randderuiter seemed cool with the results, so I'm going to accept that sometimes good enough is, well, enough. 🥧🍴

Buy my book and I promise I'll never ask you for anything again.
