The Chapter In My Life Entitled San Francisco

This Sunday was a beautifully sunny and warm day. I'm still not used to such nice weather in the dead of winter. I'd originally thought that San Francisco's lack of seasons and overall constant temperatures would grow tiring; but right now its hard to imagine how I've put up with Midwestern winters for 20-odd years before now.

I took the weather as an opportunity to walk around the city and take pictures. Something I've been meaning to do for a while now. I'd taken a few pictures here and there during the semester, but nothing too substantial.

So here's a small tour of the city in pictures.


AT&T Park.

Happy Donuts! I have always been amused by the name of this shop.

Boats at the dock off of The Embarcadero.

The Bay Bridge and Treasure Island/The East Bay.

A perched seagull.

A street performer outside of the ferry terminal.

A street car. The Illinois Terminal, I might add.

Street signs in the Financial District. I like the black and white and red-ness of this picture--It came out much better than I expected.

A view of the city from the UCSF Parnassus library. That's right. I look out at this as I study.

The aptly-named Hillway Street in the Sunset. I've mentioned this hill before.

The Castro District.

Monk's Kettle, a beer bar/restaurant in The Mission.

More pictures at my Flickr account.

Note: For some reason, the pictures in the post look a bit pixelated, and I can't figure out why. Click on the images for larger and better quality versions, or just go to my Flickr album.
