Icons of San Francisco

by | Jun 5, 2013 | 0 comments


I had a little spare time before the conference begins this afternoon, so I went out and took some pictures of well known sights in San Francisco–a wonderful city to visit!

What would San Francisco be without its cable cars?

Here's something a little off the main tourist track--the Cable Car Barn, showing the massive pulleys that drive the cables that make the whole system work. Fascinating!

Lombard St--"The Crookedest Street in the World"

Coit Tower

The Chinatown Gate

Chinatown isn't just a tourist area--just a block off the main street, you will find markets like this one that serve people going about their daily lives.

The Ferry Building (Yes, there are still ferries that depart from there to points across the bay.)

And of course, the Golden Gate Bridge

And now, it’s off to the conference!
