I am a native San Franciscan. Since becoming a photographer I’ve found The City always ready for her close-up, blemishes and all. I love doing shots here— can’t let tourists have all the fun.

  1. Ha! One o’ them places where you could meet up and pretend you were mixing with the fun side of the underbelly (an’ maybe you were…); where the owner would sometimes come roaring in and raid the cash register, and then go roaring back out again; where the shifts would grudgingly rub shoulders if they could cram in (and everybody knew everybody else in there anyway); and “it” was such a damn long time ago it didn’t really matter about the shifts. Besides, everything you drank was served there, right? Right. 😉
