Islais Landing, Sutro Rising

July 13, 2012

I love Islais Landing.

And Heron’s Head:

Hey, nice new hard-packed (decomposed granite?) path!

Now if only they’d finish the bike path along Cesar Chavez so I don’t die getting there.

Hey, gratuitous panorama of Hunter’s Point (click to enwiden):

North side panorama:

And downtown, through cranes:

Me screwing around with polar projecting a 360 panorama at the tip (crest?) of Heron’s Head:

And a somewhat mind bending tubularized map of Ocean Beach breaking over Hunters Point:

And am I the only one who thinks this would make an excellent Burrito Rail Gun?

We could even use the railgun to launch Larry Ellison’s X-301 (though it seems the Goa’uld cloaking device failed):

    Be careful taking those action shots on your bike! I love the panoramas.

    The tubularized map hurts my brain. But the final achievement of a smooth 360-degree Sutro GIF soothes the pain.

    Seriously, agree with Mark. How did you snap that down on the handlebars shot? iPhone headcam?

      That path is the only place I would dare take a picture on the bike — me going slowly, no one around, blind shot, just held it up.

      (A bike time-lapse mounted to the handlebars would be an interesting idea though…)
