View west from Lombard Street


View East up Lombard - it's about 45 degrees


Finally to the top of Lombard - the Fine Arts Palace


Looking down Hyde with a cable car


Coit Tower/Telegraph Hill


San Francisco cable car


Lombard Street - the crookedest street


View East


View down towards the bay and Alactraz


Crooked section


What's impressive is that there are driveways on this section of street


Bay Bridge, I believe


Lombard again - I liked all the parking notices


Some nice flowers and a helpful sign


Looking up Lombard from Jones


Now, supposedly Jimmy Stewart's apartment from “Vertigo” is around these parts


Coit Tower from the intersection of Lombard and Jones


The same


A nifty church down by Geary


Geary and 23rd Ave


Another church, just down the street


Golden Gate Park


Japanese Tea Garden Gate


Rach enjoys the smells at the Japanese Tea Garden

Some construction project going on in the park


A music hall


Inside the Japanese Tea Garden


... and more...


... and we continue...


A gate within the garden...


More green water in the garden


Unfortunately the sun prevents us from seeing just how red these leaves were


A peace lantern


Another structure in the garden


... and another


It was a beautiful day


Rach looks around the park, deciding where to go


There were plenty of people out and about, enjoying the beautiful weather


A duck pond - look out, avian flu!


Rach said that wasn't a funny joke...


the DeYoung museum


I rest my weary bones


I also made sure not to actually face the camera


What a view... to a kill!


Looking out across the bay


It's amazing how big this bridge really is


Those are surfers swimming off of Fort Point


Six lanes of traffic whizzing past, and a rather tall drop


But it lends itself to incredible shots


A view of the city


Pretty much the same thing again


Looking out towards the Pacific


Alcatraz!


A picture of the shadow the bridge casts


Looking towards the other side of the bridge


I liked the signs on the phone: Emergency Phone and Crisis Counseling


Crisis Counseling There is Hope Make the Call The Consequences of Jumping from this Bridge are Fatal and Tragic


Looking back towards Fort Point


The city


Close up of Fort Point - where Kim Novak jumps in Vertigo
