This week I am hitting two memes with one post. This is California Street in San Francisco.
“California Street is one of the longest and most important streets in San Francisco, running in a more-or-less straight 5.2-mile (8.4 km) East-West line from the Financial District to Lincoln Park in the far Northwest corner of the City. It begins at the intersection of Market Street and Spear Street in front of the Hyatt Regency Embarcadero Center, one block from the Ferry Building, then travels past Nob Hill, Lower Pacific Heights, Laurel Hights, and the Lake District. It makes a slight bend in at the intersection of Cornwall Street and 7th Avenue, then parallels the edge of the Presidio through the Richmond District until its terminus at 32nd Avenue, several blocks from the Golden Gate. It has four to six lanes for its entire length, and a cable car line on the Eastern portion from Market to Van Ness Street.” (Info from Wikipedia)
You can see in the middle of the photo are Chinese pagodas on both sides. This is Grant Street, the main artery of Chinatown. If you’ve been here you know that cable cars stop in the middle at the intersection of California and Grant to allow passengers/tourists to snap photos of the bustling Chinatown.
And this last one is just me playing with my photo. The last one is a manipulated version of the second image.
