Or Target Tor, as it’s called these days
Remided me of this risky light bulb change at the State Building a half-decade back
Famous San Francisco street photographer Justin Beck has bounced back from losing his camera on the mean Streets of San Francisco, looks like. He’s got another Nikon to work with so that’s nice.
Check it, a canary yellow streetcar.

Poor pooch. Daijoobu, daijobu. Gambate!
“@umi: did you leave a pentax camera on one of the benches outside 18th street in potrero? tell us the model & lens, we’re holding it…”
Do you know how much bad art we pay for? I mean, there’s lots and lots of (government-funded and government-mandated) bad art around town, let me tell you.
OTOH, popular photographer Justin Ryan Beck does his good art, his street photography, for free for one and all – isn’t that nice?
Or least it was nice, until yesterday, when the digital camera he was using got stolen out of his hands in the Richmond District at four-something PM in the afternoon:
“I’m OK but was just robbed at the corner of Arguello and Balboa. Talked to cops. Time for a new camera I guess. :/”
Here’s his last photo. It appears he’ll be on a break for a while.
How can we get a DSLR, preferably a new Nikon along with a wide anglish lens or two, back into the hands of JRB, you know, where it rightfully belongs?
I don’t know if he does it anymore, but around town there’s a celebrity photographer who would take full-length portraits of party guests using his full-frame Canon DSLR (MSRP = $8000) and a super wide-angle lens.

Now, I don’t think that you could ban DSLR use in San Francisco. There’d be a rebellion or something.
Cause if something happens, it didn’t happen unless it was recorded somehow – that’s how we look at it.
Our Folsom Street Fair 2009 was a great day for walkies with the slave, past the guy with the Nikon, past the guy with the Canon, past the Leather Etc…(!) store…:
Just be on the look-out for this guy. I think he’s up to something:
