San Francisco, California

These pics are kind of old (from 2007-2010), but I never posted them here, and better late than never! There have been plenty of changes since then, but most of what you see is still the same. Many of the pics are from neighborhoods that not many tourists see, and not just the typical downtown/tourist locations, so I hope I'll be showing some new stuff to you guys.

I''ll start with some downtown shots, from around the Tenderloin, Civic Center, and Union Square, from around 2007/2008:

Fantastic shots of this wonderful city. San Francisco has always appealed to me - it's hills really do give for some brilliant views in one direction or another.

you can never get enough of San Francisco................but The City truly has the most effed up weather of any city in the US, not that I am complaining. I love coolness etc but the freaking marine layer just messes with you SO much

Not all of us hate the marine layer.

But that said, it's not like it's always cold and foggy here. I live in the outer sunset, which is one of the foggiest/coldest parts of the city, and even here it's not like the marine layer is blowing fog up my ass every day. And SF actually does have pretty mild weather with temps ranging from cool to warm 99% of the time (50s-70s), plenty of sun, the occasional heatwave, etc. Seems pretty nice to me, and I'd hardly call it the most "effed" up weather in the US...yeah it's colder than most people are used to during the summer, but at least we don't get crazy humidity, or months of 80+ degree weather, or snow, or tons of rain, or hurricanes, or tornadoes.
