Free, Entirely Un-Yuppie “Doin It In The Park 2009″ Party a Huge Success in Golden Gate Park

Monday, September 7th, 2009

It was featured on Broke Ass Stuart’s Gosh Darn Website (remember him? He saved Bay to Breakers 2009, or something, pictured here in orange necktie) so you had to go. Doin’ It In the Park 2009 went off without a hitch in Golden Gate Park‘s Elk Glen Cove yesterday.

What’s this? A late 60′s / early 70′s muscle car? The owner simply can’t be from San Francisco, as the only time you see such cars in the 415 is when Hollywood comes to town, ala the dreadful old Nash Bridges show or the horrible new Trauma show.

Free burgers, hot dogs and imitation cheese - that’ll certainly keep the YUPs away. Tinted fogglasses were the order of the day:

Urban headgear, digital cameras (note two-fisted style, a sure bet to catch all the action for the MySpace), $2.00 40′s of beer, and maybe even a little ganga that didn’t find its way to Burning Man:

Look at all the people!

See you there next year!

A Sky Blue Pink Midwestern Sky Greets the Harvest Moon Above San Francisco

Thursday, September 3rd, 2009

Does this look like San Francisco? It must, because that’s what it is, or at least this is how SoMA looked last night when the Harvest Moon* started rising in the sky around sunset.

Can you spot the full moon? And what’s behind Door 17? Click to expand:

That’s from a fish-eye lens. Here’s the same moon a little later with a zoom lens.

Has it been 40 years since Whitey first set foot on the silv’ry orb?

Use the new Google Moon to keep track of the High Rollers who’ve made it up there.

*Or Fruit Moon, if you want to play it safe
