SkyWatch Friday, Scenic Sunday, Blue Monday, That's My World Tuesday / San Francisco Cable Cars

 Click on photos to enlarge!
This was a perfect day to park the car and walk and walk and walk around San Francisco.
Our day ended with a climb up Hyde Street to find some great places to photograph the cable cars.
This one was going UP the hill!

This cute couple enjoyed the breeze as they came down the hill to the wharf area.

I left my heart in San Francisco. Love that town, even though I haven't been there for several years now. Great shots of a great city.

Wahhh -- I want to go back to SF!! Beautiful picture. We nearly lost our youngest on a cable car (years and years ago) -- he jumped on a busy car and none of the rest of us made it -- we went up and down the hill passing each other two or three times before we stopped and grabbed him at the bottom. It was funny later -- not so much at the time. Even back then when we didn't know as many scary things as we do now! We've been back since, but not recently enough.

Never been to SF but it's on the cards as my step-sister lives there. All I've got to do is save up the money!!!!

Nice pictures. They want to make me go there even more. They are iconic.

Lovely captures, perfect fro Blue Monday!
Blues at my page, please come and see.

Getting on a cable car feeling breeze must be fun. I'd like to ride it and strolling around San Francisco someday in person.

Please do return to Nara in springtime when possible. As Nara is dabbed as "capital of ten thousands leaves", different flowers constantly bloom one after another.
Nara is safe from the ongoing disaster.
Have a nice week!

Mel Cole said...

Looks entertaining. Wish to ride one of those someday. Hope to see you in my BMonday post here.
