san francisco treat : day one
FINALLY. I sat my butt down and did a little photo editing on my photos from San Francisco. I spend the first afternoon running around Union Square, then hopped (after about a 30min wait) on the cable car for a ride to Fisherman’s Warf. The cable car ride was excellent, I was able to score the front seat so I could record the ride and take photos without anyone’s head in the way.
I walked around Fisherman’s warf, which is miserably touristy. I mean really … who buys this crap? Anyhoo… walked thru the crab stations and took photos, but had to move fast, the smell about killed me! I am NOT a fan of seafood and let me tell you, this is not the place for someone who is not crazy about the smell of chowder & etc. And all of the vendors are in one block, basically on top of each other. It’s something to see, but I won’t need to go back. : )
The fog was rolling in and it was windy and getting a little cold. I made my way to Pier 39 – supposedly one of the best views of the city. I made it about half way out and had to pack it in – too damn cold and the fog was covering anything that would have been photo worthy – boo. I got my my favorite iPhone shot though (here
) and was able to capture a good moody shot of Alcatraz with the Leica. Day one : success, even though I tweaked my ankle. 🙁
