San Francisco as I loved it

I'm starting a picture thread about San Francisco, a fantastic city where I spent nearly 3 weeks in January. I will try to post pictures showing several aspects of the city, organizing my posts by themes (downtown, SF by night, Murals, Victorian houses, skyline, bridges, etc...)

First theme: DOWNTOWN

(some picture titles are in French, sorry for that)

The streets actually aren't particularly clean... SF has one of the biggest homeless problems in the U.S. But in any case, the streets are quite alive and bustling like any other major city throughout the world.

The city proper actually isn't too large, only about 800,000 live in San Francisco. The metropolitan area - including all its suburbs - totals about 7 million people including San Jose and Oakland.

Thanks for the tour, these are some amazing pix of my hometown!!

Very nice!

San Francisco is great in photos, but even greater in person...the sounds and smells are terrific (please, no sarcasm)...

I am a native of the 2nd best city of the west coast, (Seattle, yes IMHO), but S.F. is the winner. I concede!

Beautiful city, you've captured it well with your beautiful photos.

Why do you apologize. Didn't you see The Matrix, part II where it was said that speaking French "is like wiping your ass with silk."

I like very much of the first pic...Those beautiful houses in contrast with the buildings are just perfect!

It's really true...streets clean are very important, but even it isn't easy to keep them cleaned...I think that any city around the world suffer with that problem...

But in anyway, it seems SF is very agreeable to live in...

Good job!

My second favorite US city! I agree with whoever said that San Francisco is nicer in person.
