San Francisco is a very unique city in many aspects:
Location: On the tip of a peninsula close to the ocean and the San Francisco Bay. We all know the many hills from countless movies.
Buildings: Whenever we see the red columns of the Golden Gate Bridge we start to smile. But there are many more other remarkable buildings: Palace of Fine Art, Fort Point, Fort Mason and last not least old industrial buildings in the different harbor sections.
Flair: Not many cities have that much flair as San Francisco.
China Town: Many cities in Northern America have there own China Town. Likely none can match the character of the San Francisco China Town.
Alcatraz: A prison as a national monument. This sounds weird but can be in fact very exciting.
The portfolio in this small book is dedicated to the more faded beauty of San Francisco. We hope you enjoy the photographs.
