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.

  • Went to visit Mandova today, where a rich nobleman built a palace for his mistress. This room was where he took guests before the orgies. This revelation caught me by surprise, but Rand noted that there wasn't a lot else for rich people to do in the 16th century. It was mostly food and orgies.

  • I will never get over the fact that hundreds of years ago my ancestors built a city on water, and it is still here. Next time I doubt myself, I need to remember that anything is possible if you are willing to get your feet wet.

  • My beloved surprised me with a trip to Bar Luce, a cafe designed by Wes Anderson in a far corner of Milan. I am still reeling from the perfection of the place, from the pinball machines that only accept lira to the chocolate buttons on a perfect piece of cake, bearing the cafe's name. #Milan #barluce #wesanderson
