Possibly the coolest set of San Fran photos I've seen here. Great diversity of architecture. Love the food and nice set of books on that shelf!

Sweet pictures! Always happy to see San Francisco again. Its architecture is beautiful, like its parks and gardens. Thanks for sharing.

Congrats and greetings from Madrid, Spain!

Yeah, it's more like an exurb. You know, different MSAs and all.

And yeah, these pics are fantastic. Possibly best SF thread I've seen. I can kind of get the Istanbul feel too.

Nice pictures! I like all the houses.

Might piss off some people with your thread title though!

Good job! You made the city appear significantly less grimy than it actually is.

Aside from the photos being amazing as always, the lighting is super top-notch. Dope.

great set of photos, wow. you really did your research on the food, like pretty much every joint you visited (slocombe, lers ros, ritual, saigon, palma, sightglass, etc) would be on some sort of top 100 list if you were to ask you average in-the-know san franciscan. great weather too.

coldrsx, that burger is from the inexplicably popular chain "in and out".

This place is always so fresh every round it goes through. That Victorian architecture needs to make a strong comeback...
