Friday Fun: Photos From A Sunny Day In San Francsico

Yesterday, "Mason Powell" and I did a photo shoot for my work, taking advantage of the unusually clear and bright weather we're having. Here are some samples, with pop-ups. Most were taken at the park in the Golden Gate Heights neighborhood, which is just a few blocks from my house.

This is a nice photo of the Sunset, framed by the trees of the park:

Here's another from the park, looking towards the city. Later we went to the Presidio, and over to the Marina. San Francisco is really not that big of a city!

Here's a view of Sutro Tower and Twin Peaks from Moraga Avenue, on the way to the park:

The Mighty N-Judah making the turn at Ocean Beach:

And some birds at the beach, enjoying the sun:


I take it you trekked up that hill with the stairs for those Sunset shots. Forgive me, I don't know the name of it.

I attempted to, but I gave up as I hit the base.

Indeed we did. It's a bit of climb but once you're up there it is really nice. Very quiet too. It's amazing how quiet some city neighborhoods can be. And we were just a couple of blocks from my house!

Nice Pictures of that big ole city...I'm sure glad that you finally posted some pictures of them ole N-Judah trains, cuz we here in Oklahoma never seen trains like that...I wuz thinkin that it looked like them ole Amtrak trains...Oh and by the way, I'm not too sure that Mason Powell is a real name!? Aint that some local street names? Sounds a bit bogus to an old timer like myself...Anyway, keep up the good work!

"Mason Powell" is a nom de plum, and yes you are correct, they are in fact street names.

I never really liked them plums anyway...I didn't realize you could grow plums in san francisco...So how long has Mason been a plum grower? If I ever make it to that big ole city, I'll be sure to stop by Mason's orchard...Good day...
