SF Trip

I went to SF a couple of weeks ago with my friend.

In Market and Powell we found the tap-dancing guy, those guys painted in silver doing robot moves, and some Native American people performing what seemed like rain dances. It was really warm that weekend and it was really nice in the city.

We went to FLAX art & design store in Market Street. It's a really cool art store with everything an artist would need. The walk from Powell and Market to FLAX exposes you to a diverse scene which includes a nice theater, strip clubs, homeless people, the UN Building, more strip clubs and more homeless people. Not really a place to be walking around with a brand new thousand dollar digital camera.

I taking my new Canon Rebel XT for a spin, and I figured the best place to try it out is from the 6th floor of SF Shopping Centre in Powell and Market. The camera did well in low lighting as I was able to get decent shot in ISO 1600.

Of course a trip to that area is not complete without going the usual places. We went to Blondie's for some yummy Pizza, we went to the Apple store to check out the latest iPod, and went to Virgin Records to check out the lates CDs and movies. We then went to Borders in Union Square to rest out legs and read some magz and check out the latest books. On our way home we ran into a friend who was out for shopping, what a coincidence!

That weekend was when H&M opened its doors in SF. I'm not really familiar with that store but when we passed it at 8:30PM on our way home, they still had lines around the block of people trying to get in. Supposedly, it's big in Manhattan and they have nice clothes at Old Navy prices.
