The longest journey begins with a single footstep

Here are the first few pictures (of the 951 that I took on my camera) from our San Francisco - Los Angeles - SIGGRAPH 2005 trip. I upgraded my flickr account to pro.

The Buses in San Francisco are great. They cost $1.50 to ride and you get a transfer that lasts for a number of hours.

Van Ness

Our hotel was near the corner of Van Ness and Lombard, within walking distance to Ghirardelli square (down some very steep hills!) but far enough away from the mobs of tourists.

Gnome at Fort Mason

Ellen's sister Ann Marie has a gnome statue. When their father was working in Delaware, the gnome disappeared. They received photos of the gnome at the beach, sitting on a motorcycle, and in other places. After the gnome returned, Ellen took a picture of it and made little cardboard gnomes for everyone. So we took a gnome on our trip and took pictures of him in various locations.

I would stop to take pictures and Ellen would keep walking :-)
