In the United States, I would give the city of San Francisco the award for the Best Big City to Watch People. In my past trips I was more interested in the major photo ops (Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman's Wharf, Coit Tower, etc) and probably missed some really great people shots. This time although we still did get our fair share of those iconic San Francisco shots, I made sure to quietly snap some shots of people just being people. Had one person who caught me taking his picture in a restaurant and I erased that one, but the others really help me to remember and tell the story of San Francisco.

Picture #1 - A few blocks from the SF Giants ballpark this shoe shiner was taking a mid day rest.
Picture #2 - One of my first pictures in town our first day. Strangers sitting on a park bench.
Picture #3 - In the Financial District, this motorcyclist (who we talked to) catching up on the news.
Picture #4 - These 2 gladly posed for a picture with their protest signs
Picture #5 - Chatting near the Bay Bridge

Address: Various locations around the city
