I recently visited my local Citibank branch (California and Battery Sts., San Francisco) to open an account for the nascent illumos Foundation. The walls are charmingly decorated with huge murals of San Francisco. The banker I was working with said that these were painted decades ago by the original bank’s manager, who included a wry self-portrait, complete with cigar, in the detail photographed above. Presumably “DCS” is his initials. I’d love to get photos of the whole thing – they would make great decorative posters for those of us who love the city.
A long walk in San Francisco: Embarcadero to Fort Mason to Union Street…
A young man stopped me on the Embarcadero.
“I’m doing research on working life, for young people aged 18-22 who haven’t known success. What one piece of advice would you give them?”
I kept my answer short.
From Hyde down Pine Street to the Joyent offices at 345 California. There’s always something to photograph in this city.
