I've Got My Camera In My Hand

Chinatown With Babe...His First Time 

Anyone who has been to Pier 39 in San Francisco has seen these platforms with sea lions...this day however they were swimming. Except for the lazy few. (If you look closely the Golden Gate Bridge is in the hazy background)

Alcatraz

Must be rough...

Bay Bridge and Harbor
Sometimes I like to be the one taking pictures... I live in one of the most beautiful places in the country and I attempt to photograph as much of it as possible. The thing I love most about San Francisco is that every time you visit you see something new or something you have never seen before...every single time. The place has so much historic background you could just gaze for days and wonder what it was like back in the day...

My babe had never been to Chinatown or onto Pier 39...and hes lived in California his entire life...just goes to show people often take things for granted when they live so close...even one of the most popular tourist attractions in the whole country.

These photos were taken this last weekend...73 degrees in the middle of January...This is the reason I live here and the reason my rent is triple what the rest of the country pays...worth it.

I've been sick these last few days...bleh...hate missing work and doing nothing...should be back in action tomorrow.

These are gorgeous pictures. You need to visit New Orleans one day! We don't have the sealions, but we do have a problem with alligators.
