San Francisco drops away behind us.

On my way down to Los Angeles for a conference I snapped this photo of Lake Merced on the Pacific edge of San Francisco. See map. Used as example photo on Snapfish Lab and made the front page of the HP Labs' web site. (see screenshot). [blogged] [blogged] [blogged] [published] [Explored] [IMG_7727-san-francisco]

    I caddied Olympic in 1959. Olympic had been site of U. S. Open, so I found big tippers since I arrived in San Francisco with a quarter.

    Oh well, I joined Army three weeks later.

    IainGuthrie52 says in above comment "San Francisco is evil."

    Specifically, what did you find evil about San Francisco in 1959? Or, if you insist, 2009.

    I think he's probably just a troll trying to spark an argument. It's best to not to feed trolls.

    3 of the finest golf facilities in the country if not the world. BTW if you don't know....Harding Park is the only course open to the public, and carries a hefty fee for 18 holes. I love this part of San Francisco!

    Great Shot!
