San Francisco through local eyes

Here are some photos of San Francisco, starting near downtown this evening. I'll post more as I take them from other areas of the city. I live in San Francisco and have seen dozens of photo threads, thousands of photos and hundreds of pictures of the same things taken the same way. In this thread I'll try and show you what it looks like when you live here.










Moving up the hill it gets less crowded















More later from this area...

excellent! yeah a lot of threads on here fail to capture the essence of san fran...and i'm so sick of seeing the touristy stuff. i love the streetscapes; san francisco has the kind of density that cities twice its size should be jealous of. love it.

Nice pics!

Looking forward to seeing more. I try and do pretty much the same thing, showing San Francisco in a light that's much different than what the tourist camera sees. I posted a couple threads showing the Mission district a while back, if you wanna check them out.

San Francisco offers so much in such a really small city area. I love it. More pix!!
No other city compares, IMHO.
