Some cities are so rich in diversity, culture, history and architectural beauty, that every corner is a new adventure. San Francisco, with its rolling hills is a city that can leave you breathless, in more ways than one.
A few facts you should know before we start our journey together:
- If you ever feel there is a shortage of skinny jeans anywhere in the United States, that is because they are all in San Francisco. Even dogs wear them.
- Everything is a hashtag. Signs, billboards, instructions, menu items… My thought is, if every word and phrase are hash tagged, doesn’t that just make it a dictionary.
Ok, on with the show. This is a photography journey of my one open morning in San Francisco. Enjoy the stroll. I certainly did.
This was the view from my hotel room. Great start to the day right on Nob Hill.
It wouldn’t be San Francisco without the famous trolley cars.
The Golden Gate Bridge, one of the most recognizable sites in the world.
With all the hustle and bustle of workers getting off the ferry, you almost miss the beautiful view of the Port of San Francisco sign.
The seagulls are divas!!!
The churches lend a traditional historic appeal to this modern city.
They are majestic and massive.
It wouldn’t be San Francisco without a trip to the Fisherman’s Wharf. It has gotten a little mainstream over the years, but still has that fresh seafood smell even early in the morning.
Some familiar names at the Wharf.
Boats are at peace. Not for long.
Known for its arts and music scene, this was a nice site to see.
No escapees today from Alcatraz.
In Chinatown I found 2 pints of blackberries for a $1.00. Holy crap. And so yummy.
What a view from high above.
Love the decor.
A final look from my hotel window.
There you have it, my morning in San Francisco. A perfect day, with a slight breeze, cultural awareness all around and murder on the shins.
Thank you San Francisco for bringing some urban beauty my way.
