Greetings from San Francisco!

SAN FRANCISCO—I suspect posting will be sparse in the coming week as I try to relax here in the Bay Area, but I'll try to keep you all up to date a bit on my adventures here on this blog through photo-driven posts like this one. (And if you can't get enough of these posts...well, there's my Twitter feed, of course.)

Here is a taste of the places I visited yesterday, my first full day in San Francisco:

Clarion Alley, one of many alleys in the Mission district housing all sorts of amazing pieces of street art

The Mission Dolores chapel. Vertigo fans—of which I am most certainly one—might find this a familiar sight...

Is Carlotta Valdes's grave anywhere here? (Another Vertigo reference, for those who didn't get that; this is the cemetery in the Mission Dolores.)

The view of San Francisco from Dolores Park

The rainbow flag in the Castro. This is for all my gay friends.

This is 237 Steiner St. in the Lower Haight district. Fans of the Shut Up Little Man! audio recordings—as well as the recent documentary Shut Up Little Man! An Audio Misadventure—would understand the significance of this address.
