A wealth of breathtaking photographs shot from unusual camera angles and imaginative viewpoints provide new perspectives on the beauty and magic of the City by the Bay--under moonlight, shrouded in fog or simply shining under the California sun.


San Francisco Chronicle photojournalist Frederic Larson and the late Pulitzer Prize winning columnist Herb Caen shared a love of San Francisco's beauty and majesty that they captured in photographs and words over the course of decades. Now they are united: Larson's spectacular photographs--shot from unique perspectives in the light of the moon and the rising sun, shrouded in fog--and Caen's beautiful tributes excerpted from hundreds of columns. The city's glorious landmarks are seen through the camera lens, places like the Golden Gate Bridge and Golden Gate Park, Chinatown and Alcatraz, the frenzied bustle of Fisherman's Wharf, the timeless romance of cable cars. The Larson-Caen collaboration exposes the city for what it is--vibrant, innovative, and endlessly surprising.
