The View from Here

This is a 4:30pm view of San Francisco, looking north from the south side of town, Bernal Heights. What you don't see in this picture are massive numbers of crows that were trying to peck my eyes out nor the gale force winds that nearly swept me and my small red dog from atop this hill.

It's the End of the World, as we know it...

San Francisco blew up today but luckily I was there with my camera and dog. As fas as I know, I have the only picture and I am the only survivor...

I'm also pretty sure the Iranians are to blame...

Holly Jolly Times

Well, it's the holiday season here in SF and yesterday was "Santacon," where hundreds of people dress up as santas and roam the streets. Here's a crew we met at Zeitgeist, our favorite beer garden. Jolly folk.

The Roof, the Roof

I helped my friend Kari take portraits of random people from a rooftop in the Mission last weekend. Actually it was a couple of weekends ago but I have been lame and not posting and so here they are. Kari's project was to photograph people with a backdrop of the city that will change when big, new luxury condominiums are built next door next year. Good thing I just quit my luxury condo building job or there are some out there who might have said I have a conflict of interest... I am conflicted though, that is true. But my job was to hold the fill flash umbrella so it didn't blow off the roof and I am proud to report I was successful as an object of supreme gravity. And I also got my picture taken.

This is my House

My new job has brought me to a new 'hood and the rare opportunity to build a house from scratch here in SF. I will be spending the next 6 months transforming this vacant cavity into a beautiful dream home in the hills of Diamond Heights. I turned in my views of downtown SF for eucalyptus trees and the haunting call of the Red Tail Hawk. Reeeeeee, reeeeeeeeeee. No crack whores in sight either which is an added bonus.

Take this job and shove it

I quit my job on Friday and it felt pretty good. I'm sorry to leave the crew I was working with, good guys and good times, but the monotony of the work was overwhelming and when I found my self staring off into space from the windy edge of the scaffolding I realized it was time to put in my 2 weeks and move on. Of course I will be starting a new job on Monday and hopefully it will rock. It's a small, high-end remodel company with benefits so I'm moving on up, more or less. I will post more as things develop.

Here's part of the crew on the edge of the skyline.
