Not Just For Tourists

07.06.10 | 4 Comments

Since I said goodbye to my scooter, I’ve been walking a lot more in the city. I love walking to work. But do you know what I like even more? Taking the cable car. And so, for the first time in 3 years, I bought a bus pass that enables me to take the cable car regularly… especially uphill.

When I ride the cable car I feel as much of a tourist as any other foreign (to SF) passenger, which makes me want to take pictures. Recently I also got hooked on a nifty little iPhone app called ToonFX Paint. It pretty much cartoonifies any image you take and you can colorize it later.

You then get neat little effects like this…

I preferred to keep the images black and white.

Cable Car wannabe’s (yep, they’re buses).

Looking out on Jones st.

What a fun ride home.
