3 days in San Francisco – a photo documentary


I love San Francisco.

We were here 3 days for one of Lissette’s conferences. The first day we visited Alcatraz and the Coit tower. The next 2 days I had to myself so I rented a bike and cycled around the city, visiting its parks and crossing the Golden Gate to Saulsalito.

The geography of the city is amazing, the parks spectacular. The city reminded me in many ways of Vancouver. At night we would go to cool bars and restaurants and try out Californian wines. We found the city multi-cultural, the people friendly.

I think San Francisco is my favorite city in the world.

  3. I really like the shot with the tanker underneath the bridge, it really gives you perspective on how big The Golden Gate actually is.

  4. I need to go back to properly visit San Francisco. I too was there while attending a conference and really only had time to go to Pier 39. I loved how all the seals gather on the platforms there though!
