Photo Of The Day
The San Francisco Trip
11th May 1999
In April, I spent a week in San Francisco for training. I had a ball. I didn't take any photos, but Jim used his digital camera and took 8 photos. I got copies of those photos and have included them here. There are only two subjects - Lombard Street, and the cable cars. We took the cable car to Lombard Street, walked down Lombard Street, then walked to Fisherman's Wharf.
Lombard Street is the crookedest street in the USA. It has 8 hairpin turns. Cars go down it only so the drivers can say they have been down it. It serves no really useful purpose.
We've started walking down, and this is a shot of my back.
We've made it to the bottom of Lombard Street and we're looking up at it.
We're looking up Lombard Street again, watching a bunch of cars wind down it.
Another car nearing the bottom of Lombard Street.
We've got to the end of Lombard Street and started walking towards Fisherman's Wharf. Dead ahead is Alcatraz.
