San Francisco 2012

Sorry guys for the delay in photos! I've been sick with a pretty bad cough recently. My immune system sucks like hell. LOL Anyways, today I got 18 photos from my recent trip to San Francisco! I hope you enjoy viewing them! I went to Fort Point (like right under the Golden Gate) and Pier 39.

Cool Fact: San Francisco is widely know for its Golden Gate Bridge. The city is about 46.87 square miles and is home to about 808,976 people making it the 13th most populous city of the United States.

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing. To view my best San Francisco photos, use this link. To view all of my photos from this trip, use this link.

This is the Bay Bridge. I crossed it to reach San Francisco. I live around the area, so... Go there a lot! HAHA I took this photo with my hands out the sun roof. Don't worry, I wasn't driving. LOL

Alcatraz Island as seen from the fishing pier. The one that is kind of under the Golden Gate Bridge. The one where everyone catches crabs and fishes at.

The wildlife there are not scared of people at all... I took this photo at 55mm. I was like 2 feet away from the bird.

Hiked up the hill at Fort Point. This is the view of the Golden Gate Bridge there.

View of Golden Gate Bridge at the top of the hill near the pedestrian entrance to the Golden Gate.

On the left is Alcatraz Island. The close left object is the fishing pier I was talking about and far in the background left is downtown San Francisco. This photo was taken from the Golden Gate Bridge.

Also Taken on Golden Gate Bridge. There is a parking lot down there. Some kind of Historic Site I think.

Taken from on the Golden Gate Bridge. Far back is Downtown San Francisco.


A boat.

Pier 39 Sea lions!

More sea lions!

 Wanted to get a photo of the sea lion jumping in the water, but was a bit slow... So I got a photo of the splash instead. XD

Another photo of the sea lions.

The rest of the photos of this post is sunset from Treasure Island. For all you foreigners who don't know what this is, Treasure Island is a small man-made island extending from Yerba Buena Island. Both islands are located between San Francisco and Oakland and can be accessed via Bay Bridge (both directions). If you are a photographer from the area and never been there, you should go! The view there is spectacular! You can see the entire San Francisco coast from the island. The view there is especially beautiful during sunsets. However, I don't recommended you fishing there because the water near the island is severely contaminated.

That is all the photos for today. :D Well I have no clue what I will be posting next time as I have a lot of different photos still not released yet, so make sure you check back soon! I hope you enjoyed viewing the photos, please share the blog post with your friends and family members!
