San Francisco is not just delicious, it is humorous -2

I mentioned about San Francisco fog in my previous post. Fog makes difference in many ways. In hot summer days, hanging out late and see fog formed can be romantic. But at the same time, it will chill you. If you and your accompany were wearing T-shirts and Short Pants, you will be shivering. If you decided to drive back, fog in high height highway will scare you. One of the problem is that local people do not go slow even in the fog. Actually main highways such as i280, US-1, etc.. get very foggy quite often. Please take my advice. If you drive and find thick fog, slow down. If the visibility is bad, pull down and wait for visibility gets better.

Still fog is what San Francisco is famous for. It is spectacular when fog is gradually fading and Golden Gate Bridge appears from the fog. When I was a writer in Japanese multi-writer blog, editors sometimes asked me if I can send them very good "fog" pictures. I am sure that scenery in their mind is something like I mentioned, Golden Gate Bridge appearing from fog. But the fact of matter is that it is not easy to take picture like that. Here is what I sent to my Japanese editor when asked for "fog" picture. The picture was not taken exactly in San Francisco City, it was taken in Pacifica, South West of San Francisco.

Down below is another picture taken in Pacifica. I was stunned, so I took several pictures. I see the owners passion on the car and cartoon characters, and sense of humor.

Hi Shaw .. fog is certainly dangerous and it can make one feel cold and damp .. so thanks for the advice on dressing sensibly if fog is likely to occur.

Fog must be really difficult to take photos of .. just vague greyness!

Your car picture .. looks great & I expect the owners are very proud of their work!!

Go well - Hilary: Be Positive Be Happy

Hi Hilary, Thank you for your comment as always. I was stunned when I found the car. It was something. I hope the car does not drop any of their decoration when driving. Thanks again.
