sunday in the city.


labor day weekend is one of my favorite times of the year. the sun starts to come out and san francisco’s summer begins. the fog (usually) rolls away — today it did eventually, but while i was with lucy at crissy field it hung along the coast and across the bridge. but it was still beautiful. the other reason i love this weekend is the crowds have thinned out. a whole lot of people in san francisco head for burning man, and the bay bridge was closed for construction on the new span. so it’s super peaceful and bloody easy to park! here’s a look at my sunday in the city.

    Love the Presidio and hope it’s forever protected from development. I feel a personal connection because one of my ancestors, General Irvin McDowell, the first commissioner at Golden Gate Park (appointed by President Lincoln), is buried at the cemetery there.

    loved this peaceful weekend-there was even ample parking at trader joe’s (i moved my car from the rack end to the bed bath and beyond end, just because i COULD) and empty spots all over 24th street! glad the new bridge is open but…couldn’t burning man go on a little longer?

  14. Gosh, it seems like such a beautiful place…

    Beautiful pictures Victoria! I was wondering if you have used some presets or was it just you editing at pleasure? Thanks!

    Happy week!

    Gorgeous pics, Victoria! I haven’t been to SF in so many years but would love to make the trip down from BC sometime soon. Off to check out that VSCO app!
