High five to Lydia for pointing me to this.
From the project’s github page:
A recent feature in The New Yorker juxtaposed New York City’s subway stops with their residents’ incomes. Like NYC, San Francisco has people of both extreme poverty and wealth, often living toe-to-toe. We wondered how those graphs would look in our neck of the woods. The results show the Bay Area’s economic inequality and its relationship with transit and urban form.
High five to Cousin Steph for this.

We live in a city where we are encouraged to try everything out, but God or religion is definitely not one of them.

I miss being out with Geordi.
MUJI will open is first store on the West Coast in November right here in SF, SOMA to be exact. It will be the largest MUJI store in the US. I’ve only been to the ones in HK and Shanghai. I can’t remember if I went in Beijing.
Just going through some old stuffs.
Pier 39, San Francisco.
In 1906, most of San Francisco was leveled by an earthquake and destroyed by fires that followed. Photographers captured scenes of the devastation. Photographer Shawn Clover created composite photographs that blend historical scenes from the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and his own present-day captures of the same locations.
Everyone else was shooting the super moon, but I was distracted.

I was fortunate enough to go check out the U.S. Open on Tuesday. Yes, it was just a practice round, but cameras are not allowed during the actual tournament, only at practice rounds. So it’s a WIN for me. This was the second time I’ve seen Tiger Woods play. The first time was back in 2009 during the President’s Cup at Harding. This was a picture of him right before he pulled out a sandwich and started eating it.
I’m guessing he’s wearing his newly released (just last week) TW’13 pictured here:
Too bad I didn’t get to check out Andy Zhang, the youngest player ever to compete in the tournament. Nine over par after round 1–pretty good. Fourteen years old and whoa, he’s already six feet tall.

Update (Nov. 14): Here’s the video with the armored vehicles that I saw at the Stockton tunnel!
A while back, I tweeted about some mysterious black armored cars near the Stockton Tunnel. My uncle (who works in Chinatown) watched them film a guy in a black suit flying back and forth into the tunnel. Photo friend John found out they were filming a Verizon commercial. Turns out it was, indeed, a commercial for the new Droid Razr coming out, although you can’t really see much of anything.

Ran into David and his dog Cinnamon yesterday while shooting in the Tenderloin. I suspect the dog would have been just as tall as David if they were standing on level ground. I usually roam the streets with my 35mm, but I had my 85mm on and didn’t back up fast enough so I chopped off the dog’s legs. Oops.
