Niall Kennedy drove myself and Mark Jaquith around on a small sight seeing tour of the local attractions in San Francisco after WordCamp last Saturday.
A visit to the offices of Six Apart proved to be too good a thing to pass up so we posed for a few photos on their door step!
WordCamp was great, I met really nice people, I uploaded a set of photos to Flickr, linked to a few reports on it, and was very glad I got home on Tuesday. Imagine having to put your camera equipment into the hold of an airliner?
We bought smoothies in Honest, a small shop in Dublin. They were having problems with their machines and gave us one of the smoothies free but they didn’t taste all that great unfortunately.

In the background is the famous Golden Gate Bridge leading to San Francisco. Thank you Diane for the directions to this amazing viewing point and thank you Toni for the lend of the car!
Pure white light reflects off the waters of San Francisco Bay in this shot taken on Friday night. Thanks again Niall for that mini tour!
The Ferry Building, San Francisco on Friday night.
Four buildings reach to the sky downtown in San Francisco. We had a great meal in a Thai restaurant shortly after!
Sign above the doorway leaving Memphis Minnies, San Francisco. We had a delicious lunch there! Yum!
I like this: lightning storm
We went bowling today, and I took a few shots. So far nobody has attempted to kill me for shooting so many photos!
An open air meeting of Automattic yesterday went superbly, although we’re all a little burned. Sitting in the afternoon sun in a park by the Golden Gate was worth it though! Thankfully my luggage came, along with my suntan lotion.
iPhoto isn’t *that* bad, you’re limited in what you can do, but I haven’t got X11 installed so I can’t run the GIMP. For some reason, the dmg file off Apple.com refuses to install because it’s an older version than software already on the machine. Any Mac head know what that’s about?
Andy took a photo of me in the airport as we waited for Podz. I was wilting and falling asleep on my feet.
Note to everyone – don’t pack your shoes in your luggage. If you’ve walked through fertilized grass in the previous year, the US security scanners will detect it as an explosive! My bag arrives tomorrow..
