Annapolis Maryland 1978: Maryland Avenue. There’s something happening between the two ladies getting out of the cars. What gender is the running figure? I never looked at these shots since I got them back from the lab 36 years ago.

Annapolis Maryland 1978: Not a very good shot, but early, so I included it. It shows Dock Street with the Marriott Hotel just visible on the right. The handsome couple on the boardwalk look like movie stars, which is probably why I took the shot. The guy over on the left with the hat was my traveling companion on this trip. Taken on Agfachrome, which I think I brought with me from England.

San Francisco 1988: Dodge Aries 1984 model. Some crazy overhead wires above the street.

San Francisco 5th Street 1988: What I noticed when taking this shot was the big water tank on top of the building in the centre.

San Francisco 1988: Adrian Hotel, Eddy Street, corner of Hyde. There is one comment online about this place: “Nothing this place is hella nasty”…

San Francisco Natoma Street 1988: The Examiner newspaper has been through several ownerships since I took this picture. - On July 27, 2000 a federal judge approved a new owner’s assumption of the Examiner name, its archives, and delivery trucks. - This is the only mention of the trucks I can find on the internet, and no other pictures of them have yet shown up on my searches.

New York 1988: Staten Island Ferry. The guy in white is not with me. Photo taken on my camera by Roger.
