San Franciscans on a Saturday Shopping Afternoon (Weekly Photo Challenge: Eye Spy)

Standard

Good Afternoon:

Spied and espied San Franciscans shopping and enjoying the storm-free Saturday yesterday. Using the old 30 Shot technique, collected over 120 candids, and because I had a comparatively good day, only discarded about 80% of them. Presenting some of the more interesting ones, some edited, some left as is.

I have not seen this street preacher before.

This person did not beg, did not communicate, in fact, did not do anything. Just stared straight ahead.

Just like last year, the City turned a few blocks of Stockton Street into an instant park. Somehow, in the midst of all the holiday shopping, this person found herself a quiet space.

Time with the granddaughter–also known as an early Christmas present.

He looks tuckered out. Probably waiting for the rest of the family to finish their shopping.

Santa Little Helpers, and why Santa need them. She can’t stay upright without them.

Version 2

I saw a balloon vendor at Powell and Geary who did very well yesterday. The parents seem to wonder how long this present will last.

Also wandered around the SOMA (South Of MArket) neighborhood to do some errands. Presenting perhaps the least holiday-ish looking building in San Francisco:

While photographing some of the city’s latest murals, I blundered into a sort of costume party at Harrison near 8th Street. Not a huge fan of electronica, so I only grabbed a few snaps before continuing on my way. As you can, a few of the partygoers are into the “furry” subculture.

Today, I will make a quick trip to a farmers market and stay home prepping lunches for the week and experimenting with a few new recipes. What can I say? That’s how I relax.
