San Francisco architecture takes center stage in this 5 minute "Hop On - Hop Off" look at the city that the late journalist Herb Caen referred to as "Baghdad-by-the-Bay."
The images were inspired by the opening title sequence of Alfred Hitchcock's spy thriller, "North by Northwest" (1959) and by architect Richard Peter Loarie (my big brother) who taught me how to see and use a camera decades ago.
The images were captured on 4 separate weekend visits to San Francisco in the Fall of 2013.
