Why does that same row of houses appear in every photo of San Francisco?

lol what? It doesn't.

Most SF skyline shots posted on this website don't show those houses...such as the other SF skyline shot posted on the same page as that one. But that specific row of houses is an SF landmark, so it's often photographed. What a weird thing to complain about.

I didn't literally mean "every". Of course, there are photos of San Francisco from other angles, perhaps featuring a college-aged girl in a hooded sweatshirt in the foreground. But that same row of houses does appear a lot in photos, and not other similar rows.

Oh, and I wasn't complaining.
