San Francisco is a beautiful tourist city…..it is true……But right after you go west of Powell street, there is different face.
Untouched old buildings and small shops….there are no more tourists around this area.
If you see this kind of sign….it is not a nice area……
Although it is looking rough, some developments are going on. In a few years, I would be a bit different again…….
City hall is located behind Market Street too……
When I visit some cities, I just don’t like going only touristy area. It is usually beautiful….but at the same time, you are not seeing the reality of the life of the city. That is how, I also go to a bit or roughest area too.
For this, compact Panasonic GX1 was extremely handy.
GX1 +PZ14-42mm is small enough to put in my jacket pocket.
