I have spent the last week and a half or so away from home, in two of my favorite cities: San Francisco and New York. The San Francisco leg of my journey was work-oriented, and two of those days were spent walking the exhibit hall of APE, the Alternative Press Expo. But the rest of the time, I was pretty much on my own (except for a delightful walking companion on one of those days, a former resident of the city who knew her way around quite nicely). I walked a total of a little over 35 miles on my 5 days in the city. Here are some photos from along the way...
This rather idyllic shot is from the base of a giant set of stairs that leads down into the Marina district from up on the hill in SF. It looks much more like a quaint little European village than somewhere in the City by the Bay, if you ask me, and that's why I snapped it.
Monday morning was an extremely foggy day in the city and I was able to catch some of it as it burned off. Here's what used to be called the TransAmerica Tower (not sure if it still is named that) and the funky Zoetrope Building sorta side by side, with the fog wrapping itself around the former.
One of the great bookstores in SF--City Lights--and the Tower. I love that I can still go to that city and find at least five great bookstores to explore, all within (somewhat reasonable) walking distance of each other.
