Just had the monthly Shoots & Shots with the gang and I’ve come to the realization that I have an unhealthy obsession with the cable cars of San Francisco. This was captured at 450mm handheld right before sundown while rooftop hopping through Chinatown! I had less than two seconds to capture the cable car cruising through but managed to nail it (I failed the first attempt and had to wait for the next one to arrive). All and all, awesome time shooting with everyone, new and old! 🚋🌆 ―

❕What to visit in SF❕
Amoeba San Francisco 🙌🏻
Amoeba Music is a US independent music chain with stores in Berkeley, San Francisco, and Hollywood, Los Angeles, California. It was founded in 1990 in San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district and remains in operation, having survived the decline of CD sales in the 2000s.🙏🏻

It is 4:20pm as we arrive at the Haight Street.
The fragrant scent of Mary Jane fills the air,
Warm salesman from Phoenix, welcomes us.
Activists and revolutionaries have been replaced
by 'rebels searching the street for a new cause'.
Placards and banners usurped by handheld signs,
'support a hungry stoner' or 'anything green will do'.
Vintage thrift shops, where previously loved items
find a new affection, like the dogs that own this street.
The Mission where families fight to retain their homes,
History, community, livelihoods threatened by increased
property prices. Soon signs saying established in 1961
will be taken down and replaced by vegan burger bars
frequented by lumberjacks who are yet to fell a tree.
On the way home we connect with the bus driver,
She had so many questions about why we would
travel the world and what prompted us to do this trip.
Between stops she told us her story is one of loss,
courage and strength. Losing her son to a drunk driver,
she set up a project to help family's facing similar pain.
Sharing tears and hugs at the end of our ride.
What a beautiful, inspiring 'random' connection to make!

Surprisingly not too many locals know about this place. Located on the 46th floor, this bar has amazing views of the city, including both bridges on a sunny day. Drinks are quite expensive, but you pay for the view 🤷
