San Francisco photos: Becoming a tourist in my own hometown

Our digital photo class (techniques differ somewhat from film photography) spurred us to continue to try to find a theme for the final project, so a couple of us found ourselves in San Francisco on Thanksgiving and, as a native of SF, I found out again why it's so popular! Great weather we had too. Will put up a few more later on, since I took a lot.
