I love it, I remember this, I remember walking it up (one one like that, that had a lot of stores, and art galleries)

Ooh I love this one. This is a very characteristic hill from SF. That's something we see in the movies. Excellent perspective.

Famous from "The Streets of San Francisco" and other chase scenes. Great angle to shoot from. I don't know if I'd want to park my car there.

Such fantastic composition and perspective!!! Agree to what others have said... it's like watching a scene of a movie. Wonderful!:-)

I'm waiting for Frank Bullitt going down this street :-)

@Calusarus: Ah, Lieutenant Bullitt - the first is still the very best.
such a wonderful long view. i like the way the stop lines on the street seem to divide it into sections.

Exceptional capture. Felt like a roller coaster ride:-)

@sherri: All you need do is bring Evie...
What a great hill!!! Love the horizontals of the wires and cars..and how they bisect the central spine. Nice composition!

@Marcie: Thank you, Marcie.
Superb capture, is this the road we often see in movies set there, or is there many roads like this, it just looks familiar and I have never been there

@JJ: Well, JJ - one of them...
Spectacular shot, love these streets in SF. Reminds me of the Steve McQueen movie Bullit. Remember the great chase scene? Your answer is directly related to your age and mine.

@John Maslowski: Well, John - if you go back and glance six comments down from your kind words - you'll discover both Calusarus and yours truly, doffing our collective caps to Lieutenant Frank Bullitt. Simply, first and still best! That film was released forty-one years ago. Arrrgh.
I wouldn't want to walk to the shops and back up that hill each day! What a perspective. Neat shot, Stephen

@EYES WIDE SHUT: It be good for you my friend - think of it as a free 'Stairmaster'
(of course, I put the camera back in the car - and drove back over the hill)
A classic San Francisco scene !!

All those "Stop" seem to say "Stop... and admire !" - I DO !

The cars look like insects, lined up to feed from a trough. Great shot.
