(10/11/11) Birthdays and Big Cities

October is a rather... full... month. At least for the Hansens. All the birthdays of my immediate family are squished into these four weeks!

On Saturday, my family took a day trip to San Francisco for my birthday. Since we had visited San Fran pretty recently before then (scroll down a post or two in order to check out those photos), we decided to go beyond the must-see attractions and explore a bit deeper.

An odd view of the San Francisco skyline:

Chinatown and the Bay Bridge on a gorgeous day:





The Fleet Week air show:


After the air show, we stopped at my favorite restaurant - Boudin's! SO. YUM.
The Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park:





Off to the windy Pacific coast! It was gorgeous.... but freezing. Like, numb fingers and red nose freezing:

You probably dont remember me but we are distantly related. Smitty is my great uncle, emphasis on great, who is my grandmas brother.

Anyways, as a fellow photographer myself, I am very curious to know what you are shooting with? I have Nikon D3100 and absoutely love it.

Love your photos !!! Stay in touch great-distantlly-2nd cousin- by-marriage

The colors in some of these pictures are so gorgeously saturated! Love them.
