Shifting Gears in San Francisco

A red hot Ferrari tours through Chinatown in San Francisco.The bustling international city of San Francisco is a big contrast to my daily life of quiet living off-grid in the northern Colorado Rockies and I love it! It has always been our favorite city destination and still is. It is fun to look at the haute couture on Union Square, shop for souvenirs in Chinatown, and have a martini in the famous Redwood Room at the Clift.

San Francisco is full of contrasts too. Seeing the red Ferrari in Chinatown was not that unusual but still a major contrast to the primarily walking crowd. Our room at the Monaco was very cosmopolitan but kitschy as well. And if you want to see street vendors next to shops of famous designer couture then Union Square is where you will be.

Next visit will definitely have to be longer!

  4. Lovely photos Julie. I've always wanted to visit San Fransisco but it's so far from here so we tend to stick to the east coast for now :) That hotel room is amazing haha almost need sunglasses to look at it! :)

  9. With all that color, especially the red, the turquoise lamp poles manage to stand out to me.

    Pretty dress. I like the reflection of the shopper, too. :)

    Very exciting shots.

    Thanks for teaching me a new word - kitschy; and I'm glad you enjoyed your SF visit!
