As seen on Market inbound:
This is different:
For example, here’s what part of Potrero Hill looks like, more or less, IRL:
And here’s what the TBI published:
You see, the colors have been turned up to 11 – note the Chernobyl-esque glowing yellow trees, for example.
So, add that to your list of photo don’ts, TBI.
Thank you, drive through.
Here it is, as promised, the Soogle Bus:

But uh oh, here’s what you’ll find these days on the Yelp:
“I’ve never even been on one of their buses, but I observed one of their drivers this evening on Hawthorne Street driving aggressively, honking the horn continuously at the car in front of him and overall behaving like a jerk.“
“Although the shuttle and driver were booked for 8 hours, the shuttle driver refused to drive at points of the evening! At the end of the night, the driver tried to ask for more money than was agreed upon based on an old quote the company had given. I had to pull out my laptop to show him the email that his boss had sent me to prove that I did not need to pay him more.”
“Horrible. This is NOT a real travel/ tour service. They constantly ask for more money and CASH. They are disrespectful and RUDE. They throw litter around, and stand around and smoke. They speak almost no English.”
And that doesn’t include the reviews what were taken down or the ones currently on the “filtered” page.

All the deets:
“Multi-Agency Joint Evacuation Exercise – Civic Center Area – “Civic Response 2011″ – September 30th 2011, 10:30am
This will be a coordinated multi-organization joint evacuation drill involving the facilities management and security agencies, as well as the involved building tenants from within the San Francisco Civic Center area. This multi-agency drill will involve civilian and uniformed responders from the local and state government levels and is aimed at helping ensure public safety in the event of an actual emergency.
There will be approximately 1,500-1,800 building tenants evacuated and dozens of responders involved in this exercise. The participating agencies will activate their fire alarm plans and evacuate their tenants to pre-designated locations at Civic Center Plaza, UN Plaza, and the War Memorial area.
Participating Buildings – City Hall, Dept Public Health at 101 Grove Street, UC Hastings College of the Law, Veteran’s Building at 401 Van Ness.
The Command Post will be the SF PUC Mobile Command Vehicle (MCV) which will be parked on Grove Street between Polk and Larkin across from the Bill Graham Auditorium.
Mission: All participating buildings will execute their evacuation plans simultaneously and safely while keeping aware of the other facilities tenants.”

Perhaps they later sped to the Financh in time for an evening drive photo shoot in the middle of Market street with the cars whizzing by?
We can only hope…
