San Francisco Photos

California Trip: October 2013

Here are just a few of the highlights from my two days I spent in the city. My main goal for those days was to enjoy some of the areas I used to love to hang out in, when I lived in the Bay Area, and to visit with my old friends. 

These images are more "snapshots" than photographic works, as I didn't make my friends stand around waiting for me to be creative. All are hand-held.

There are links to more information in some of the photo captions.

Remember, you can click on a photo to see a larger version. You can then step through those larger versions using your arrow-keys, or start a slide show.
