Civic Center & Coit Tower (Part 1) - San Francisco, CA

On September 1st, 2019, I took a trip to San Francisco, CA. I visited Asian Art Museum (I didn't take photos at this location), Civic Center, and went to the top of Coit Tower for the first time despite living in the San Francisco Bay Area for over a decade now. The photos are split into 4 blog posts. I hope you enjoy these photos.

This is part 1 of my photos. I start off at Civic Center after I finished up at the Asian Art Museum. After Civic Center, I started walking toward the Embarcadero (I didn't take any photos on this leg of my trip). Then I climb up the Greenwich Steps to get from the Embarcadero to Coit Tower.

Message From The Photographer: If you've been following me on social media, you'd know I've been dealing with vision impairment and gradual vision loss since August 2018. The conditions are neurological, so my vision isn't impaired the same amount on a daily basis, but overall it seems to be going down hill. It has slowed down and made taking photos, processing photos, using computers, etc... very challenging and somewhat depressing. Some days it is impossible for me to take photos or process them. I know these photos are from a very long time ago, but I'm only just starting to get around in processing them as I'm only able to work on them at a very slow pace. I hope you can understand, and I hope you enjoy these photos.
