Under a San Francisco Sky

Sometimes, most of the time, I explore the city without any real destination; I just go and see where I’ll end up and take a few pictures along the way. I hope you enjoy them.

This big, yellow house is down the street from Haight St. in the Haight-Ashbury District.

I thought this one was also pretty cool.

This house has old-school style and character, which I really like, not to mention a painter with patience and an owner with big bucks.

Now, here’s something different…

Looking at the bay, from a hilly street, just above the Marina District.

Hollywood made a movie of this place some years ago.

Actually, two movies come to mind. One movie had Clint Eastwood, and the other had Nick Cage and Sean Connery. Can you name the movies?

And, this iconic bridge took three years to build, and it was completed before the predicted deadline and under budget. Today’s American leaders should look to the past and take a lesson. This kind of drive, workmanship, and national pride is what kept us ahead of the pack… just saying.

The Golden Gate Bridge is painted with a paint called “International Orange,” and connects San Francisco County to Marin County. Members of Metallica, Journey, Night Ranger along with Sammy Hagar, George Lucas, and other celebrities and well-to-do folk reside in Marin County, so that should say a little something about neighboring Marin.

And, finally, this is one of my favorite places in the city, which can also be briefly seen in the Ben Stiller film called “The Heartbreak Kid.”

Crissy Field. When the military occupied the Presidio, the grassy area was an airstrip, and the buildings (the ones with the red rooves in the foreground) housed airplanes. Pretty cool, huh? Crissy Field is open to everyone.

Well, I hope you enjoyed the photos and bits of S.F. information. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’ll be back in a few days with more stuff to share with you guys. Now, go enjoy your weekend before it’s gone!
