Many  visitors to San Francisco (and Fisherman’s Wharf) place a cable car ride on the  “must-d0″ list.  And of course it’s a lot of fun to catch the Powell – Hyde cable car at the Beach – Hyde turnaround near Fisherman’s Wharf and then cross Russian Hill and Nob Hill to end up at the other turnaround at Powell and Market.

In addition to photos of San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz, one can also focus on glimpses of people as well as the neighborhoods that the cablecar passes through.

Except for the photo above, which was captured at the Beach-Hyde turnaround, the photos were taken while riding a cable car.

Photos taken with a Leica M8 and a Carl Zeiss Biogon 21mm f/2.8 lens.
