California Road Trip: San Francisco, July 4 (late afternoon/evening)

Ghirardelli Square – it was kind of like this photo below, okay, but not fantastic.Image


People claiming territory for fireworksImage

Fisherman’s Wharf – Below is one of my favorite street photos of the trip.  I don’t know why – the combo of lighting, color, and expression, I suppose.  It’s not often I can catch someone before they see my gigantic camera rig and start posing or yelling at me, and it’s so great when naturalness (points for new word creation) happens.Image

One-man band!




If you’re going to wear a dog suit, you better make sure it matches your dogs.Image

I didn’t realize this guy was wearing sleeves until I was processing the photo.  Not cool, dude, not cool at all.Image

San Francisco Playland – tons of really old games and some I remember from Chuck E. Cheese’s when I was a kid.  Remember Pole Position, Centipede, Wack-A-Mole, etc.?  Plus the really old, antique stuff – so cool!Image

Well, it’s better than clammy. : )Image


Marietta’s stuff wasn’t all that.Image

This one was pretty cool – the pictures almost look 3-D.Image

Sorry, no fireworks.  I didn’t have my tripod and turns out a person’s shoulder doesn’t really work for that.  Here’s the last photo of the night – somewhat patriotic.Image
