Back to the homeland, Mission Street, SF

I lived in SF for about 5 years and Mission was by far my favorite place to go, primarily the 23-25th and Mission area.  I haven’t been here in a long time and thought I’d bring the camera back in the very early morning to take some shots.

Here are some night and morning shots of my favorite places.  I was shooting with the Sony A7RII and the Samyang 35mm FE AF F1.4, hand held.

This is 23rd and Mission.  In my opinion, this is the best of San Francisco.  I would go to Mission Bar, get drunk, stumble next door to get a Torta Cubana, and head across the street for a hot dog sold out of a minivan.



  1. When I worked at Civic Center in the early 80s we’d occasionally hop on Muni to either 19th or 24th to a Taqueria for the best burritos, other wise my knowledge of the Mission is sorely lacking!

    1. excellent, did you go to taqueria el farolito on the corner of 24th and mission? I would sometimes go there right before catching rhe Bart back home.


    2. No clue! I was easily led astray in those days. Three of us would go to Lunch together at least 4 days of the week. We had a pretty regular rotation that allowed for an occasional “guest “ eatery!
