I always find it interesting to hear what people think of when you mention the name of a place. For San Francisco it’s things like Cable Cars, Fishermen’s Wharf, Lombard Street, Ghiradelli Chocolate, Seafood… all kinds of wonderful things.
For me and the way my mind works, I think of the amazing views from all around the bay. I enjoy a walk down the Embarcadero, people watching all over town, the view from Alamo Square, but most of the time I’d rather park myself with my tripod on a hillside overlooking the beautiful landscape of the bay.
Such was the case on my most recent trip to the area. Each morning and evening I could be found clinging to some rocky cliff working a cool angle or view. My wife thought I was nuts – she’s usually right. But it takes a bit of work to find the best shots – and that, of course, is what I’m always after. I can honestly say that I’ve come to appreciate the grip of my Merrill hiking shoes.
But great views never get old for me.
