tourist fail.

once upon a time i decided to go on a long walk, hike up the filbert steps to coit tower, and enjoy the views from the top then cruise back down to the apartment via the north beach area.
i set out with my canon, iPhone, sunnies, four dollars, chapstick, and my keys.
i started here at filbert and sansome.
already digging the views and surprisingly only a few blocs from my current apartment.
 climb, climb, climb (a decently big feat with my still 'kinda lame' knee).
more than 700 steps i hear.
views on the way up were incredible.
it was beautiful day across the bay and the homes on the way up were awesomely quaint and cottagey.

 oh hey there coit.
 into the city, the fog did roll and the overcast shadows on this amateur photographer were a little difficult (give me time).
 there is was, telegraph hill and all. 
a perfect sign and obviously i felt super edgy and cool taking this picture.
 more views out to the bay the further up i went.

and don't ask me why but i think these was my favorite capture of the day.
i love this city.
(took a few pictures here to do a panoramic too- cool, yea?)

oh, and then i got to the top of telegraph hill and to the base of coit tower and it was seven dollars to go up to the top (remember i only had four). so i bargained with the museum guide, tried to convince him that i was a student and that i should be let top to the top but no such luck. so i took that other fun way back through north beach, grabbed a coffee at the coolest little coffee/clothes shop, snuck into someones backyard to capture a few more pictures and headed home.

coit tower fail.
san francisco adventure success.
