I went up to Twin Peaks last night and thought I’d get a shot of the city. Look! San Francisco! It’s you! And I totally caught you blinking. Sorry about that.
OMG! Do you know who shot Laura Palmer?
jman077 you beat me to the punch, I was going to ask if he’d enjoyed some “good cherry pie and a damn fine cup of coffee”.
i can see several of my old houses from here!
I, of course, immediately read that as “science fiction at night”
so did I, mensley.
I once did a search on “SF conventions”, thinking I would get all manner of links to SF cons more local to me. Um…the search results were definitely an eye-opener.
Looks like Twin Peaks would be a favorite haunt of teens making out and serial killers with hooks.
Well, there were a lot of teens, at least.
Teenage lovers’ lane + middle-aged guy with a camera = some good shots of an SFPD precinct?
I’m not middled-aged! I still have six months!
I take it back. Snap away, Ansel!
John, I am three months older than you and in no way, shape or form will I consider 40 middle age. Maybe when I turn 50.
Ooh, I haven’t been up Twin Peaks in ages-the view is always lovely from there (my second favorite after the Marin Headlands) except when the fogs envelops it, then it’s all ‘Hound of the Baskervilles’.
I just turned fifty and no way am I middle-aged.
Well, now, middle age would seem to imply the middle of your lifespan, so that would depend on how long one plans on living. I plan to life forever, and so far, so good!
I plan on living until I am 107. So I’ll start thinking middle age when I turn 53.
I flew out of San Jose at night heading north a few years ago and remember seeing a similar cool view of San Francisco. Bright lights up until you pass into Marin County where the lights suddenly go out.

Let’s just stay 39 as long as Jack Benny did. That was around 38 years if I remember correctly. 8D
thanks for the shot John, Christ I miss that city…
Did you spend any time “experiencing” the culture in the tenderloin?
