san francisco, 1906

this was a film shot from a trolley on market street in San Francisco, a few days before the 1906 earthquake destroyed most of the buildings..there is something so haunting and sad and beautiful about it...

I would give the greatest sunset in the world for one sight of New York's skyline. Particularly when one can't see the details. Just the shapes. The shapes and the thought that made them. The sky over New York and the will of man made visible. What other religion do we need? -The Fountainhead

off to New York and Philadelphia in a few days...
