This weeks PhotoFriday, “Crooked,” is another one where I thought someone else must have got there before me (especially since I’m two days behind the “Friday” schedule). But, as far as I can tell, no one else has gone for “The Crookedest Street in the World.” Also known as Lombard Street in San Francisco.

(My second choice would have been potentially libellous images of banks or stock exchanges. It maybe just as well I didn’t need to go down that route.)

San Francisco

My previous exploits in San Francisco have been well documented (1 2 3 4 5) so I shall just get straight into the images.

This time I have no particular theme to link the pictures together. I quite like the Golden Gate Bridge peeking through the fog and the yachts. I got a better day to visit Coit Tower and the Transamerica Pyramid.

The Office

Warders office, Alcatraz, San Francisco, California, US

My first reaction was why would I want to take a picture that reminds me of work? Then I remembered this image that I took in Alcatraz. My desk at work tends not to have hand-cuffs. Actually, I tend to have so much paper littering the place that you can’t see the surface. Anyway, I thought this fit the theme of “The Office.”

Citi Sign

This weeks PhotoFriday theme is “Disastrous.” Here is my entry.

I’m not sure whether it’s my imagination or my photo library that ran dry for this theme, but I couldn’t find a great image. Instead, find this more comedy picture. I’ve generally found Citi’s service to be disastrous.

This picture was taken in San Francisco, California.

The City

San Francisco from Alcatraz

This weeks PhotoFriday theme is “The City.” Here is my entry.

I kind of had to do this one of San Francisco as they call it “The City.” Eddie Izzard explains:

Oakland, San Francisco, Oakland, East Bay! You?re not called West Bay, are you? No, you?re just (mockingly ) “The City.”

“Are you going to ‘The City’ today?

“I might go to ‘The City.'”

And Oakland is just a collection of houses, is it?
