San Francisco Part Deux

2011.09.24
Day Twenty Seven. Made the obligatory trip over to the Golden Gate Bridge, which was covered in the equally obligatory fog. And, if you're wondering if I ever get tired of taking pictures of sea gulls ... well, the answer's no ;). After finally deciding that it was too cold and windy to stay near the water (and, more importantly, that it was lunch time), I made my way over to China Town, where I found some moderately interesting architecture that was mostly obscured by the pervasive power cables for the electric bus system :-/ ... but, the wall murals were amazing! The dismal light (it was overcast) made some of them hard to photograph, but I think the few that I was able to capture came out pretty well. Then, of all things, I found myself in a tunnel and decided to attempt an unsupported, hand-held shot running down the length of the tunnel ... and it came out! I focused a little close, but I still managed the shot with zero hand-shake! I literally could not believe that it came out. May favourite of the set has to be the weather-beaten metal chain hook though. The colours in it are simply stunning :)
