saturday was wonderfully spent with ma beardman. he found this guy selling a tamron 28-75 mm lens in san francisco. so with no hidden motive (haha) wes asked if i'd like to take a trip to sf with him and just stop by this guy's house to pick up a lens. he's cleber.
i was testing out the lens on some dude who fell asleep on the side of the street.
we then traveled to tartine bakery for lunch. i was more excited than wes, i'm sure. he calls it 'chic food'. side note. wes standing in line for chic food. classic. how do i get this boy out of his food box, geez. somebody help!
i got the croque monsieur with shiitake mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes
we shared a morning glory bun, but i lusted after all the other desserts behind the glass.
we took our food to-go and ate our meals at twin peaks. i forget how crowded that place gets in good weather.
everyone wants that cliche shot of them and the city in the background.
anyway - on our way home we stopped at the golden gate bridge. for how often i've been there (and the short period of time i lived there when we immigrated), i've never actually walked the bridge.
i have this morbid curiosity as to how long of a ways down it is for those who plan on jumping. and there are lots. i like to think that they don't follow through (or survive). i know that's not the case though.
sorry, morbid, i know.
but ya, let's move on.
ps, i like our new lens. the guy said there were a bunch of focus problems, but we didn't have any, other than the fact that it needed a new lens cap. they normally run for nothing short of $300, even used. the guy sold it for $150?
hence the trip. jk. the trip was to spend time together. haha.
