Google Maps played a fun trick on all of us today, by making their maps look like old 8-bit ones. Here is a few snapshots of the city.
Rainy Saturday morning.
This window display on Hyde and Post is really intriguing, considering it is not a shop.
I was at the offices of Typekit this morning for a workshop about disposable films, and let’s just say that the view from up there is pretty much the coolest around. It’s on the 9th floor of the US Bank building, at Mission and 22nd.
Don’t you just love happy buildings? I do.
Early morning, Belden Place.
This weekend hashtag project was about finding light in unusual places, thus #chasinglight.
Foggy afternoon, gray sky, flying birds.
It’s brunch time at American Cupcake on Union St., where the decor is as funky as the menu. Red velvet battered fried chicken on waffles? Yes please.
Sunny alleyway in SoMa.
Geary street, between Polk and Van Ness, seems to be in need of a makeover.
Kind of sharing its borders with The Mission. Gorgeous houses.
The colorful Stevenson alleyway, between 7th and 6th.
This tiny house has appeared on the side of the Hotel Des Arts on Bush St. From SFist:
The cabin was installed via crane, using an aluminum frame affixed to the side of the hotel, just above the roof of Le Central, a small French restaurant. And no, you can’t go inside. It will remain in place, and get weathered by the elements, through October.
