San Francisco At Twilight
Downtown San Francisco, as seen from Twin Peaks, one of the great vantage points in the entire Bay Area, in my opinion looks its best at dusk in early October. That's when the region has about a month of the type of perfect weather that makes people spring out of bed on Monday mornings, and even somehow manages to quiet the road rage of city drivers, if only for a brief, delicous moment in time.
From this perspective, taking in the sweeping view, it's hard not to think about all the people down there, busily moving from place to place, trying to make some sense of it all. And all the worker ants, eagerly scrimping and saving for a day in the future when all this effort won't be necessary, and when (they hope) life will resemble a day at the beach. And, of course, all the deviant ants who occupy their time trying to screw the other ants out of their honestly earned gains.
Ah yes, the little details to be seen within one of these picturesque landscape photos.
