Baghdad by the Bay, a San Francisco trip - 200 images

What a wonderful city San Francisco is. We got lots of exercise walking up and down the city and had a great time.

This is without any doubt one of the best (possibly THE best) selection of pictures in the Urban Showcase! Very interesting subjects, a lot of attention is spent on details and they are made with a good camera. Thank you for posting them!

SF, like Bagdad, is one of the most hated towns for quite a significant percentage of Americans, perhaps that's why?

San Francisco's nickname of "Baghdad by the Bay" came from a columnist who wrote about the city for over 40 years. He first called the city that over 50 years ago, comparing San Francisco to the Baghdad of 1000 years ago -- wild, exotic and bustling. It has nothing to do with the modern Baghdad or the war. And Americans don't hate Baghdad or Iraqis.

I'm not San Francisco's biggest cheerleader but these photos are absolutely marvelous. I may need to come back for a visit this year.

For everyone that "hates" San Francisco at least 3 people like it. People are more annoyed by San Francisco than anything though. This had more to do with the rabid leftist radicals, overpraise in travel mags, pretentious dot commers, homeless white kids from Connecticut, flaky drifters, bipolar weather and pricey digs more than anything else. SF is not perfect by any means but intensely charming nonetheless. Sadly, SF will never be the avante garde mecca as it was in the 60's and 70's. Some naive people still expect to go to Haight and see a big hippie fest full of free lovin', bells on shoes, cheap rents, communes and flowers. What made bohemian SF appealing no longer exists for the most part.

This is a great photo series. You really managed to capture city life! I like it how you show the less-touristic type of capturing pictures.

San Fransisco looks stunning !

Hey, it's my friend Adam! :P

I agree, your pictures are insane. Do you have any other threads? I want more

You captured a hummingbird...that's incredible! Superb thread just checked it out again and so glad to see the Mission. I applaud you for not taking any photos of the Golden Gate bridge. I love your juxtapositions between old cars and tacky facades. You captured the urban grit of SF which is very impressive since most people take the usual photos of the usual touristy things which sugar coat people's impressions.
