Here's a little secret: San Francisco is my default city on Yahoo Weather and I don't even live there. Not yet, at least (crosses fingers).
This weekend I took a trip to the beautiful city to photograph my friend, Eileen. I also rode BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit, for those who aren't familiar with it) for the first time and it was amazing. My other friend who, like me, is not a city girl, accompanied us. It was rather comical because Alma and I stuck out like sore thumbs with all the cameras and "oohs and aahs" and excited glances. But most apparent was the terrible balance we had while riding the buses. Our feet could not stay firmly planted on the ground whereas other people stood stiff as sticks as the bus gyrated sharply from destination to destination.
To be honest, I think that if I ever have the opportunity to move to San Francisco I will always have some tourist-like attitude about it. I've been to San Francisco a handful of times and for some reason I can't outgrow the love at first sight feeling.
The following pictures are a series of film photographs taken with my Minolta x-700. I've been losing my touch with digital and to be completely honest, I don't mind at all.
