Nice shots. I really like the details and the oh-so slightly different perspectives.

San Francisco seems so much older than it is. I love its sense of tradition. I am amazed by all of the masonry buildings downtown. Such survivors.

Great shots. I especially like the random street scenes.

Why is fishermans wharf left as a tourist trap and not developed into something more impressive and interesting for city residents too?? I was there recently -- what an eyesore, isn't it time for an upgrade, its been relying on its past glories too long.

"Everything is so well mantained there...Beautiful city. I love it."

For a small city like San Francisco I think it could be much more well maintained. Especially along Market Street and the public transportation. I would be annoyed living there because of all of the damn tourists. I love traveling but hate being a "tourist".
