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.
Is this an album cover?

“Ironically, although hipsters have existed in one form or another for decades, the hipster movement has become more mainstream, influencing the American status quo by supporting alternative art, music, and fashion. Like an epidemic of entitlement, the hipster condition has spread across America and over the seas to Japan and other countries susceptible to American culture. We see hipsters every day riding their fixed-gear bicycles on their way to studying film at local art schools. They drink the most expensive coffee and the cheapest beer. Imagine a world where alternative culture is pop culture; a world where Vampire Weekend plays the half time show at the Super Bowl instead of Bruce Springsteen; a world where stores selling used records and clothing are as large and as common as Walmart. The purpose of this show is to create awareness of the hipster way and the rise in demand for outrageous moustaches, vacuum sealed jeans, high-school sports tee shirts, and the over-consumption of Pabst Blue Ribbon.”
That’s harsh. Harsh but fair.
“Café Royale is a neighborhood coffee & tea house and beer & wine bar offering a wide assortment of international beers, wines and distinctive sake and soju cocktails. Located in the heart of San Francisco, the Café supports the work of Bay Area artists throughout the month through visual arts exhibitions, music programs, art markets and events to benefit nonprofits.”
See you there!
Not exactly sure what kind of photography rig this fellow was using in Civic Center the other day. It could be something as simple as two SLR cameras in a box, or maybe it has something to do with video or 3D.
(Perhaps he was scouting locations for the next Wes Anderson movie?)
Dude has quite a conversation piece, anyway.

Just look at the details:
As seen on Fell Street. Click to expand.
Aging FJ-40 model (豊田 ランドクルーザー, Toyoda Rando-Kurūzā). Of course! Dude could buy a much newer Bland Cruiser (2009 price = $50k-something) instead of this (possibly amazingly expensive) torture box, but where’s the fun in that?
Alaska license plate: SURF. Of course! Our 50th state is the next frontier of surfing, don’t you know.
Right Hand Drive (RHD). Of course! Dude’s driving on the wrong side of the vehicle. Why? Why not?
Snorkel. Of course! Can you see the urban snorkel air intake standing up on the left side? Very handy when our streets are under five feet of water. Snorkle! Snorkle! Snorkle!
Original diesel engine. Of course! A Chevy small block would just drop right in, but where’s the fun in that?
No doors. Of course! How can people see your stylish shoes and socks with doors blocking the view?
The hat and the fogglasses (on a very dark summer day) put him over the top. Nobody could possibly best this fellow, that’s why he’s San Francisco’s Hipster of the Year, 2009.
