When they were building this thing last year, I thought it was going to be a tall apartment building…

Introducing Loop, the 24 Hour Convenience Store at 19th and Lincoln What Looks Like an Audi DealershipTuesday, January 27th, 2015
[UPDATE: Reference to the hundrum Richmond District omitted. And somehow, I accidentally changed my Canon’s Mode switch to Manual, which I didn’t think was possible, you know, due to the safety. With my 1D, this would be impossible, but with a 5D, it’s possible, obvs to me now. Anyway, this photo was way overexposed. It was all … foggy.]
Or is it a ’65? I can’t tell.
Nevertheless, this ride was an arresting sight, creepin’ down Geary turning towards Arguello in the Richmond District:
All this guy needs is 16 switches, and hollow-points for the snitches.
And maybe some D’s.
Play us out, Dr. Dre.

Saying Something Nice About the Sunset District: It’s Right Next to Strawberry Hill / Island in Golden Gate ParkTuesday, November 25th, 2014
I’ll tell you, I used to live in the Sunset District, for a short time, when I was in my twenties, and now I’m in my forties and most of what I remember is the relentless fog.
And these days, I keep hearing from the current residents, the Fog Truthers, people who Deny The Fog.
Some people in the Sunset go there every day / every week, so good for them.
And all the Airbnb’ers of the Funset should get on over there as well, if only just once.
So there, I’ve said something nice about the Sunset…
Remarkable New “KOBE BBQ” Restaurant is The Talk of the Richmond District – Turning Heads at 4112 GearyMonday, November 10th, 2014
“‘Kobe beef’ painted on the wall. Bar-B-que.”
See? It’s stupefying.
And The Yelp is hilarious.

IMO, the LED “OPEN” sign hanging from the fire alarm is the piece de resistance, pardon my French.
“Let me paint a picture for you. Kobe BBQ is a one-story half of a building, painted entirely black. No windows. The words “Kobe BBQ” are painted in big red letters on the top half of the building with a big red arrow pointing down to the door. At night, the entrance is lit up with bright lights and there is a lighted “Open” sign next to the entrance on top of a sample menu.”
The Beautiful Overhead Wires of the Inner Sunset – Wires are Energy, Communication, Transportation – Wires Are LifeMonday, November 10th, 2014
What do you see here? It’s a Rorschach test deal:

There are some millionaires out there who think that we should take tax money, mostly from non-millionaires of course, and use it to get rid of all these cables and wires and whatnot and replace them with a more expensive approach.
I cry foul.
Word on the Street, Outer Avenues Edition: “LEAVE MY CITY, HIPSTER SCUM!” – Pretty Harsh for the Middle RichmondFriday, September 5th, 2014
It would take me a long time to find this billboard again, as I rely on street signs to tell me which Avenue I’m on* after I’ve crossed the city limits and entered SF County. (Anyway, it’s near this place – but is it the Inner Richmond or the Middle Richmond? I just can’t tell.)
I sense a little friction.
“I beg of you, Monsieur, watch yourself. Be on guard. This place is full of hipsters, hipsters everywhere, everywhere.” –The Dark European
*I suppose there are people out there that you could blindfold and then release at some random place in the Richmond District and then they’d know their exact location based upon sounds, wind patterns, smells, etc. You know, ppl with Local Knowledge. I’m not one of those people (even though I was very close to being redistricted into District One a few years back, oh well).

Good-bye, Mel’s. I’ll remember you for 50’s nostalgia and your gluten-free pancakes…
