Travelling #4: San Francisco panorama no. 9

alcatrazpanorama, alcatraz,  san francisco bay, macingosh photography
Of course we had to take a boat trip through the bay. Seeing Alcatraz from a distance was already creepy, in particular with some knowledge about it in the back of mind. Our original idea was to take a guided tour to Alcatraz, but as we learned those had to be booked some weeks in advance. And were really pricey on top.

Travelling #4: San Francisco panorama no. 6

fire exit stairs, russian hill, san francisco, macingosh photography
We’re going vertical today. Fire escape staircases on turn-of-the-century buildings are probably the most normal thing in the world if you are a US citizen but they are not if you are a Euro-guy like me. Reason is: we don’t have it. At least not on older buildings. Even though I’ve seen it many times before I was still fascinated by those antique steel constructions and just had to take some photos.

This one here was shot on Russian Hill near Van Ness Avenue, pretty close to our hotel.

Travelling #4: San Francisco panorama no. 4

san francisco aquatic park, alcatraz, early morning, macingosh photography
Actually I don’t know what the name of this dock or pier on the westside of Aquatic Park is. Just like big parts of Aquatic Park Pier it’s in a quite a derelict condition and because of that public access is not allowed. Shot the frame in the very early morning when the city was all quite and peaceful. The island on the right side of the background is Alcatraz. I will tell you more about it later.

Travelling #4: San Francisco panorama no.3

PANORAMA_SAN FRANCISCO_LOMBARD STREET_macingosh_photography
This viewpoint is on Lombard Street, just above its extremely curvy part for which it is so famous (or notorious if you prefer). Quite in the middle you can see Coit Memorial Tower which is another great site for cityscapes.

I just couldn’t resist posting another blue-containers-on-a-junkyard panorama picture. I also wasn’t able to resist taking part of a weekly photo challenge. So, here we go.

panorama, los angeles, macingosh photography
This is the only photo I took in L.A. during my last stay there back in August. As far as I remember this was West Hollywood Boulevard.

We were there only for some hours. Most of the time we spent in the car cruising through the busy streets of L.A. and all the rest I hung out in front of boutiques waiting for my femme to come out again.
