Some travel pictures of San Francisco. We spent the weekend walking through a lot of the city, and played Ingress, Google’s intriguing augmented-reality game. It’s a game that is still in Beta mode I believe, so you can only play by invite right now. Essentially, the game makes you walk around the city on a semi scavenger hunt for public art and monuments. Once you find the item, you’re supposed to claim it by taking energy from it….if you have enough power to take it! Since we’re level 1, and didn’t have enough power to take a lot of stuff, but it was really fun trying to find each item as we were walking through the city. We even found one at our favorite cafe called Cafe Prague! I think we walked easily over 10 miles this weekend…and we got lifts from our friends, taxis, and the metro often too!

The first set here is in black & white. In the hotel we were staying in, there were a lot of black and white photos of the city from years back. That inspired me to take some architecture and city photos while we were walking, and the photos were my inspiration

Alright, back to my vibrant colors. I met up with Leah, my high school friend who now lives in Walnut Creek. We went to brunch at Foreign Cinema [can you say yummy bacon??], and then met up with Amine at the Ferry Building. Leah’s never been to the Ferry Building, so we walked through it, tasting cheeses and buying soda pop.

Chinatown just needs color sometimes. The colors, food, and vibrancy all bring such beautiful photos. I also love to take photos of my dim sum. Yummmm.

On our last night day in SF, we went to Twin Peaks to get some vista shots. It was so windy, we were just blown in all directions. Climbing one of the hills [boobs] was hard enough, but we decided to climb the second hill too because it had less wind and tourists.
