I was able to catch a few nice days late in the season up in Tahoe. Chilled out with my good buddy and AMGA certified climbing guide Jeremy. "Climb rocks...don't smoke them."

Monday Nov.1,2010, the San Francisco Giants won the world series for the first time since the franchise relocated to the Bay Area in 1958. It was a magical moment for San Francisco. Some of my fondest childhood memories are from going to games with my father and grandfather. It was amazing to see all the torture come to an end. It brought pure joy to so many people. The streets of the city were filled an energy unlike ever before. As the evening and things escalated, the scene changed and some damage started getting done. This is my neighborhood your seeing in these photos. Right where I have been living the past few years in the mission district.
...and then came fire
Later in the evening I found out the van broken into and covered with graffiti belonged to the couple who owns the corner market. The are so lovely and have invested everything into immigrating and running their small store. When I was buying a beer last night, he was really shaken up and we spoke about the damage. As I was leaving he said, "Fuck America." It was too bad the shit couldn't have happened to better people.
