San Francisco Pt. 1

I went to San Francisco last weekend, and yes, I did leave my heart in San Francisco. There is something incredibly special about San Francisco, you can easily get lost in this dreamy city. The people, the culture, the fact that it’s a big city with just a few minutes across the Golden Gate Bridge you can begin your trek into some of the most beautiful and peaceful landscapes. I had always been fond of the city because of the history, mostly of the 60’s. The counter-culture of the mid 60’s ,peace and love and rock and roll. My father lived by music of this genre and it grew on me and I to became a huge fan of the music of this time and of the culture. I had always wished that if I could go back in time I would situate myself in San Francisco in the mid 60’s. I was/am also a HUGE fan of “beat generation”, Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, I remember when I went to the bar that Jack Kerouac frequented I was beyond in awe. But San Francisco is so much more, it is a magical city and I really didn’t get enough time to truly enjoy what the city has to offer. But, in the short about of time we were there,  it was the right amount of time to get me hooked and ready to go back for more.

Here are only a few of the pictures I took. The remainder of my photos are of Alcatraz, MOMA & Heath Ceramics.
