Sorry – Have Some SF

I haven’t posted in some months, I’m not very motivated. I can’t tell if anyone besides my mom is actually reading this, instead of finding the picture files via google.

Commenting would really encourage me to post more, I have tons of trips and pics.

Here is some SF awesomeness:

P1070994

These are from inside a building down by the embarcadero

P1070995

 

P1070996

These are the buildings surrounding the complex, pyramid building in the distance.

P1070997

A pretty flower tree

P1070998

Down at the piers behind the ferry building

P1080007

I’ve heard people really like this ferry trip

P1080008

I even saw the Giant’s mascot, a seal

P1080009

The bay bridge

P1080011

A skywriting plane isn’t an uncommon sight on the weekends in this metropolis

P1080012

The ferry building and its clocktower

P1080014

One of the original hands (it was extensively renovated years ago)

P1080015

They turned it into a lively market

P1080016

With fun shops like this one

P1080017

And lots of fresh produce

P1080018

Out in front was the financial district, with its tall, stately buildings

P1080019

This is a very important building in California history

P1080020

Southern Pacific was one of the big, corrupting, railroads, but it contributed significantly to the economy and development of this state

P1080024

I need to find out when this was built, very intricate

P1080025

Down in the bart transit station, they display the ropes found during its excavation. The area was built on the remains of ships in the harbor!

P1080027

Ultra modern offices

P1080031

Such a sleek look

P1080034

 

How many styles can you identify?

 

 

P1080335

Pyramid peaking out

P1080340

This is the tallest building in the city, 555 California

P1080342

Pretty shortcut

P1080343

This fountain is preventing Apple from relocating its store onto union square. It is public art/open space that they are having a hard time replacing

P1080345

It has scenes from all over the city, this is the dome at the palace of fine arts

P1080349

And twisty Lombard street

P1080350

The skating rink and statue in union square

P1080364

Too cute, no?

P1080366

Pretty tree

P1080367

Can you tell we are in the middle of the city? This is a parklet, taking up some former parking spaces

P1080369

A new tall residential building in the south of market area.

P1080378

Its twin

P1080379

A bay sunset

P1080380

And the sunset from my office in Sac, much better, no?
