San Francisco Confidential: Part II

Close-up of a Keith Haring sculpture
Corner of Howard and 3rd Streets

I had to expedite my passport application today, which required staying in San Francisco to process and pick up the same at the passport agency. Between the time I dropped off said documents and picked them up, we had hoped to go to Alcatraz, but because of time constraints we ended up instead seeing some of my former work colleagues and having lunch with one of them. Then we hung out in Yerba Buena Gardens for an hour or so.

After finding out that passport wouldn't be ready until the next morning (bad news) but could be mailed to me (good news), we headed up the road and toward the coast. I love San Francisco and it was great to see Drew, Greg, Will, Jim, and Teresa and have burritos at Si Senor and cookies at Specialty's. Guaranteed I'll be making trips back down to the Bay Area to visit friends and family!

And now, to the coast!

Cool photos. I like the close up of the flowers and the views of the bridge.

Your Haring shot turned out great! That was a nice day.

That is a great shot of the Haring. Love the color and your composition is just perfect. I'd frame that one.
Hey, I have my bag almost packed and it zips (so far). When I put the last things in we'll see. I"m having some friends over for vin et fromage this afternoon for an au revoir party. Too bad you two can't come!

Marley: Thank you! I love photographing the Golden Gate. It's never the same two days in a row. (Some days, it's never the same two hours in a row!)

Maya: Thank you! And yes, that was a nice day.

VJ: I like how the Haring turned out, too. Glad you like it. So... T-minus two days and counting. Are you packed and, more importantly, are you able to zip the bag shut? See you soon!
