There was a little voice which kept creeping up to me, telling me that I have not been having enough new experiences in my life. For the past year or so I have been focused on nothing else but work, rightly so — but I have no excuses left when faced with a year-end break.
I fell in love with San Francisco for the city that she is, with the Mission capturing most of my heart. What would it be like, exploring the non-city bits of her?
It was with deliberate intent that I wanted to see San Francisco with a different lens, literally and figuratively. I rented a car, opened Foursquare and searched for the spots people are recommending, resulting in these amateurishly captured photos. The square crops are Instagrammed (but of course), the rest are taken as it is with an iPhone 5S. Hopefully some of you will get to see these sights for yourself — it changed a part of me.
(Yes, some of these places are technically not in the City of San Francisco but they are all within a 20m drive.)
