San Francisco Sketching

In November 2006 a friend of mine and I travelled round USA by train. I can't say enough how great it is to travel by train, we must have sat and looked out those windows at the incredible scenery for most of the trip and still wanted more! Even after a 36 hour journey from Spokane, Washington to Chicago we were already looking forward to the next train trip onwards to New York.

One of our first stops, and possibly our favourite city (apart from Chicago) was San Francisco. Here are a few pages from my sketchbook while in this great city...

San Francisco from the top of Coit Tower on Telegraph Hill, you can tell it was done left handed because my handwriting is illegible!

Looks like a whole heap of fun was had there. Fancy seeing Alcatraz Island. I saw a spooky programme about it a while ago. It is supposed to be VERY haunted.
