Sorry if I overloaded anyone's computer/phone with my extra giant photo posts on the previous page, I'll be including fewer pics per post now.









More Outer Sunset pics on the way...

But that said, it's not like it's always cold and foggy here.

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.
i think you may have read me wrong but yeah, i'd take it's weather any day . Ive been during each season but mostly in the summer, hence my post. There's not much about SF that i don't love, suffice to say

Maybe I did misread your post. Summer is when the marine layer really goes crazy, due to the extra amounts of warm inland air clashing with the cold pacific air, so the fog is very prevalent and the city will definitely seem colder to someone who only/mostly visits then, as opposed to someone who's here year-round (especially when compared to the hot weather most cities get in the summer). Aside from random heatwaves that may or may not happen, the warmest weather in SF is usually in the fall, during the "indian summer". But regardless of the weather, SF is a great place, and I'd love it even we had freezing acid rain tornadoes every week

Anyways, here are a few more Outer sunset pics:

Sorry I haven't updated the thread in so long. Here are some more pics from the outer sunset:





















Ocean Beach. A lot of these pics were taken in one of the 100 degree heat waves we had in 2007, hence all the people, and SWIM SUITS!1!! The beach is more often some variation of windy/overcast/foggy than it is sunny and hot:

Thank G*d. Too many of those people in swim suits shouldn't have been.

some pics from Mission Terrace, in the southern part of SF:





























This corner store delivers...anything, until 1 am. You need a pizza, a sandwich, some matches, and a bottle of shampoo? No problem:





This corner store makes some of the best sandwiches in the city, though you'd never know it passing by:



A tasty example:





















Balboa Park Station, which is a Muni train yard, the end/beginning of the line for the J, K, and M lines, and the 26 and 36 bus lines, as well as a BART station. It was renovated a year or two after I took these pics:

Fabulous, gritty, photo-documentary style photographs of San Francisco's Mission district...

Thanks! It's not the mission district though, it's Mission Terrace, which is a smaller neighborhood that's farther south. Bernal Heights lies between it and the Mission District.

Some more, from a muni stop on San Jose Avenue:



This section of San Jose Avenue was originally intended to be a freeway that was planned to cut through the middle of the Mission District. that was stopped thankfully, and it bacame part of San Jose Ave. People drive on it like a freeway though, which makes sense as it looks like one, and many people use it to get onto 280.







Norteno gang graffiti, in red. The X4 stands for XIV, which stands for N, the 14th letter of the alphabet. The S's are crossed out becuause their rivals are the Surenos. You sometimes see S's crossed out on street signs in Norteno territory:



































Looking up towards Glen Park:
