I live near San Francisco, but sometimes I pretend to be a tourist. These are all from the same day, a couple weeks ago. I didn't get as early a start as I wanted, but, hey, I live close, I can go again.

I like the pictures, but I'm curious.

What's the difference between being a tourist and pretending to be a tourist? Seems to me you're either touring or you're not.
You're offended? Oh, really! Life IS offense -- get used to it.

Maybe it's different for others, but in my case, I see things in a different light when there's a camera in my hands. This is the one of first pics I took during my recent visit to the city. While I live near the Great Highway, it never occured to make to get up early - until now  8)

Thanks!

Actually, the shot would have been more dramatic if I didn't take a wrong turn and lost 20 minutes or so. There were actually a lot of red in the morning sky, which was gone by the time I got to Sutro Park...

I miss SF!  I grew up in the Bay Area, and both my wife and I went to Cal.  Here's a shot of the waterfall at Yerba Buena Gardens from a trip back, early last year and not long after I got my first dSLR.  Taken handheld on an evening walk.
