I forget where the real wedding photographer was. I’ll bet he hit all the stops in Golden Gate Park – everybody goes to the same places, year after year…

And if you wait for MUNI there long enough, that video camera will document your abduction or assault, as it has for others so many times before.

And if you wait even longer, the promise of that bus “shelter” dissipating sine-wave “roof” will be fulfilled by The Big One, you know, the one that will kill thousands.

And if you wait even longer than that, San Franciscans will have an SFMTA that actually is “somewhat independent” of the Mayor.

Keep waiting!

PS: MUNI sucks.

It could become the symbol of the school or something.

(Get a big enough mill up there and you’d be generating enough electricity for the all the students’ grow lamps.)

I’m not saying this would be easy. And I’m not saying that it would “make money.” And the bird lovers, they wouldn’t like it.

But I am saying that this is a good place for a mega windmill.

In conclusion, UC Hastings Law School Ought to Put a Windmill on top of the 100 McAllister Building.

Thank you, drive through

The Windy Western Presidio isn’t the Best Place for Outdoor Wedding Photos

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010

Or, I don’t know, maybe it is. As long as you don’t mind if your veil blows in the wind straight out, like the long, long hair of Disney‘s Pocahontas.

Passers by were cheering for this couple, anyway.

The scene near the Immigrant Point Overlook on Lincoln Boulevard with the shutterbug far off to the left:
