“Leaving San Francisco is like saying goodbye to an old sweetheart. You want to linger as long as possible.” – Walter Cronkite
Years ago, when I first started going to San Francisco, I focused on shooting iconic landmarks: the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay Bridge, the view of the city from Twin Peaks, Coit Tower, Alcatraz, Crissy Field, Fort Point, The Presidio, Cupid’s Span, the waterfront and the beaches… the list goes on and on.
Over the years I have definitely felt a change though; those early photo focused trips have given way to unplanned days spent exploring with no agenda. San Francisco is a remarkable city, full of charm and it is the simple things now that bring me joy and inspire me to shoot. I am content to feel the energy on the streets, meet the people and find beauty in the day to day life of this city that I love so much. San Francisco is like an old friend now.
With that said, here is the final set of images from January’s trip. Until next time, my friend.
