Russian Hill


I took this photo in San Francisco a couple of years ago. It's looking up Russian Hill from Telegraph Hill in North Beach. If you look towards the right hand side near the top of the photo, you'll see Lombard St., which is called the most crooked street in the world and is a popular tourist spot. It isn't the most crooked street in the world, however. It's not even the most crooked street in San Francisco. I've been on a street in San Francisco that's much more crooked. It just isn't in a touristy area, so no one knows about it.

I made a cyanotype bookmark based on this photo which I have listed for sale on my Etsy page. Here's what it looks like.

"I've been on a street..."?

I don't know Tyler, sounds pretty vague. If you can't name the street, it didn't happen. (insert random emoticon here)

Nice photo, btw.

But it's true, I swear!!

Actually, it is true. The street is in the Potrero Hill neighborhood.There's actually a Wikipedia listing on it:

The photo, by the way, was taken from my sister's dining room. Their apartment has the most amazing views!
