The TransAmerica Pyramid on a Typical Foggy Day in San Francisco

Friday, September 25th, 2009

This is what the TransAmerica Pyramid Building looks like from the ground on a typically foggy day in the 415. At least the sky was mellow yesterday – it wasn’t all angry, Midwestern-style.

On days like yesterday, you can’t see the shining star on top, either the natural or the artificial. Oh well.

But at least they didn’t leave the lights on, blazing away on the depopulated floors.

The Aftermath of a Sunny Weekend in San Francisco

Monday, April 14th, 2008

Check out this jam of traffic leaving San Francisco via the Great Highway as this past weekend’s balmy weather came to an end a bit too soon. A few hours earlier, these people were enjoying the sun at Ocean Beach:  

When you have so many people visiting the City, things can get out of hand. How did these fellows get bloodied on the Great Highway near Judah? It’s hard to say why so many cops were there or what put a hole through one of the car’s windows, as reports of this incident are hard to come by.

All that was left of the crowd at the end of the day is shown in this photo, entitled The Aftermath of a Sunny Weekend in San Francisco. Leaving garbage and recycling next to a full trash can isn’t necessarily impolite, but apparently a “ton of trash” was left on the beach as well.  Bad form.

Let’s do better the next time we have a great weekend of sun. Of course, that will probably be in about six months or so. Oh well. 

Enjoy the fog!
