San Francisco has been rainy for most of January, but the rain held off for a few hours, which allowed me to take some photos for the Castro Courier's January issue.
This election year was very challenging for many San Franciscans. Here are some photos of the protests that took place throughout the city in November and January.
Hundreds of Santas filled the streets of San Francisco to celebrate SantaCon.
The Castro's finest came out for the Castro tree lighting ceremony. The SF Gay Men's Chorus and S.F. Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band led the crowd in carol singing. A blessing was given by The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. Donna Sachet and Santa passed out candy to the children in the audience. Lastly, Scott Wiener helped conduct the countdown for the tree lighting.
Some photos from St. Anthony's Thanksgiving preparation. St. Anthony's served over 3,500 homeless in San Francisco.
Students from Harvey Milk Civil Rights Academy came out to Castro street to write the names of those who were lost to AIDS on World AIDS days.
I spent most of the month of October in the beautiful country of Nepal.
I was amazed with the busy streets of Kathmandu, hiked more in a day than I thought my legs could, sat in a monastery while listening to the chanting of monks, woke up to a magnificent view of Everest, got my camera punched by a little whipper snapper while I took his photo, cooked and ate Nepali food, met some amazing people and had an overall unforgettable experience.
Here are some photos from my trekking journey.
Some photos from a very hot Sunday at the Folsom Street Fair. Enjoy!
On a hot Sunday in the mission the San Francisco Lowrider Council held a barbecue for Mexican Independence day followed by a cruise through the city. Hundreds of adults and children poured into Potrero del Sol (La Raza) Park to eat, drink and admire lowriders. Here are some of my favorites from the day.
