Rain, Rain, Go Away!

My friend, Tony,Β  and I have been planning to visit downtown, San Francisco since last week. As the actual day of us going to SF came closer, the weather made a turn for the worse. Despite the forecast predicting rain on Wednesday, we still wanted to go! Luckily for us, it didn’t rain at all! In fact, it was a really lovely day– not too cold, not too hot.

When we got off the BART station, we had no idea where we were! All that mattered was that we found some place to eat. As we strolled down the streets, excitement of taking photographs rushed through our blood. Life was everywhere!

After we ate, we decided to head towards the Pier to check out the Bay Bridge. However, with our bad sense of direction, we ended up walking into China Town. It was adventurous!

With the help of Tony’s phone navigation, we made our way through the city towards the Pier.

Once we got to the Pier (14) we were presented with an amazing skyline view! After that, we proceeded to walk the rest of the Pier.

Without knowing where we were really at at the end, we decided to head back downtown. The funny thing is, the route we took was insanely steep! And by coincidence, we happened to come across a view that we had searched before coming. How lucky of us! Now that we know where it is, we’ll definitely have to come back.

I’ll have to admit, it was a really long walk back. Tony and I were famished. So on our way back, we decided to stop by to get some pizza!

After we ate, we decided to head back home. So we made our way back to the busy BART station and awaited our train.

We were there from roughly 11am to 4pm. It was a long day and a lot of exercise. I’m incredibly glad it didn’t rain. I just hope it stays like this for the rest of my Spring Break. πŸ™‚

  1. I love the photographs you’ve taken. I’ve only been to San Francisco once and it was only for a few hours. After looking at your photos, I would love to see SF again, but this time take the time and really explore.

    Hi Jay, I’ve been reading & enjoying your posts about film cameras. It’s hard to imagine that a form of technology is disappearing as we speak. If you get the chance you should go to Rochester, NY & visit the George Eastman House & museum. Kodak created the digital camera but never understood how the technology might translate into the marketplace.

    My first digital camera was a kodak and it was kind of clunky. I carried it around Europe though, and got some good pictures. I also still have my original pentax manual 35mm. It never gets used. It was fun to see the beautiful camera bodies you came across & to see the pictures your got from them.

    I was just reading something Ansel Adams said about capturing the image in your head before ever seeing it printed. digital is so much more fun. The guesswork is gone. Anyway, nice posts

  6. Hi, you take some beautiful photos. I especially like the colour tones, they look retro. Great blog!

    Lovely pictures. I am glad the weather cooperated with you guys yesterday πŸ™‚ It drizzled a little bit during the night. Did you end up at Little Italy?

    Again, amazing photos! Particularly the black and white one outside the restaurant/cafe with the lady. Amazing contrast and moment! What camera and lenses do you use?

    Nice. The photograph on the side of the building with the french vanilla colored stairs reminds me of a painting I’ve seen in a museum.
