San Francisco Sights

San Francisco’s steep hills, scenic vistas and historic housing stock make it one of my favorite cities to take a stroll, which is it and of itself one of my all-time favorite pastimes, especially when I have a camera on my person. As an aside, the iPhone’s camera isn’t so bad. It’ll be interesting to see just how advanced cell phone cameras will become, but I’d wager they’ll continue to improve a lot. When I was a kid, taking a picture was kind of a big deal. Disposable flashes, photo albums, processing etc. My point is that it all added up. Now even I take it for granted that photos are limitless. What’s next to go limitless?

  1. Great photos, they feel very Edward Hopper to me. I really love SF too.

  2. Thank you. Hopper is one of my favorite artists, so I appreciate the complement.

  3. You passed through my hood, baby. In fact, if you’d pitched me a burrito, I could’ve caught it.

    So. Thanks for the luminous pictures. Sometimes, with my nose buried in the dailyness of things, I need reminding of why I moved here in the first place.

  4. Hey Rosenatti, that’s cool! Whereabouts do you live? Love your profile pic. (pizza, pizza, pizza!)

  5. Yay for technology, but still takes a great eye to capture such captivating images. Thank you for sharing.

  6. Thanks for sharing your stroll through the lesser-known neighbourhoods of this lovely city. I like your windows pictures of modern buildings — they really stand out in contrast to all the “gingerbread”. The 7th photo in the article (blue and white house with the pediment and pillars) would also look great as a zoomed-in shot of just the doorway framed by the 2 lovely Ionic (I think – halfway between Doric and Corinthian) pillars. Did you happen to go into the Farnsworth 20th C. Modernist shop? Anything we would like to see from there?

  7. Such wonderful photographs of San Franciso.
    I lived there for 7 years in the 1980’s and
    loved it. I like the vivid colors and
    clear shapes that stand out. Everything
    there looks interesting to me.

  8. I envy that you lived there for seven years Barbara!
