Cyclist on Divisadero Thinks He’s a Car – Unique Piston-Connecting Rod Tattoos on Legs – A Two-Cylinder Engine

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

Here he is, on Divisadero (that street that just had its lanes shrunk in order to widen the useless median in order to please local merchants and real estate interests – they call that a “road diet,” I think).

Up and down and up and down, just like on a real car:

This is What You Get When You Turn a Wide-Angle Camera Lens on Its Side to Photograph a Billionaire and His Daughter

Friday, July 15th, 2011

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.

It was grisly – you’d end up seeing people with big heads and tiny legs. Kind of like this.

That’s what you might call a bird’s eye view of Bernie Ecclestone’s shoes:

But let’s leave that aside as we take a look at today’s ad:

A bit of a mismatch, it seems.

But as always, You Make The Call. Check out today’s San Francisco Examiner, page 3, IIRC.

Jenna Elfman, America’s Most Famous Haight-Ashbury Hippie, is Looking Good at 40. Plus, Scientologists Everywhere

Monday, December 27th, 2010

Market Street is playing host to the return of Jenna Elfman to San Francisco these days. She starred in Dharma and Greg on the TV back in the 90’s and the oughts, so she’s what people think about when they think of San Francisco and Haight-Ashbury and hippies and whatnot.

And she’s Yet Another Scientologist, did not know that. She’s part of a decades-long attempt to normalize Scientology as Your Next Religion. (This bus shelter ad is as much about that effort as selling Flip cameras, actually.)

You see, that’s how they roll Down Hollywood Way.

So, mommas, don’t let your daughters grow up to be 5’10” ZZ Top or Depeche Mode video models:

Monday, July 6th, 2009

The Patient Snowy Egrets of Golden Gate Park

Sunday, January 18th, 2009

This smallish Snowy Egret of Golden Gate Park struck a pose for a long time before something good to eat came by.

If your bird is snowy white with all-yellow feet and mostly black legs, odds are it’s a Snowy Egret
