Overview

San Francisco is a city founded by and for adventure seekers rooted in the ideal of progressive values. At once cosmopolitan and relaxed, professional and playful, the City by the Bay captures tens of thousands of new residents a year even though the physical boundaries of the peninsula that San Francisco is situated on prevents the advancement of urban sprawl. Just outside this seven-by-seven swath, Golden Gate National Parkland stretches up and down the coast, providing visitors with plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities in addition to the myriad of cultural happenings within the city limits. Photographer Bob Morris captures the vibrant creativity and passion of San Francisco with his eloquent and powerful photography, while writer Joslyn Hamilton shares the stories behind the images. From San Francisco's Native American, Mexican, and Spanish Mission heritage, through settlement by gold seekers and the great earthquakes of 1906 and 1989, San Francisco is a resilient city with a heart of gold.

About the Author

A lifelong writer by nature, Joslyn Hamilton parlayed her passion for words into a freelance copywriting business, Outside Eye Consulting, and has also written for various publications including NYTimes.com, McSweeney's Internet Tendency, Common Ground, and Elephant Journal. She has edited and ghostwritten books on a variety of themes such as cooking, poetry, personal finance, and yoga. She is the co-founder and co-managing editor of the irreverent website RecoveringYogi.com as well as a frequent contributor to the site. Joslyn lives, writes, and hikes through the merciless Bay Area fog from her home in Marin County, just north of the always breathtaking Golden Gate Bridge. Her unflagging reverence for the many sights and landscapes of San Francisco and the surrounding countryside stem from her chilly upbringing in cold, blustery New England.

With over 25 years' experience, he began his career as a staff photographer for theSouthern Pacific Railroad based in San Francisco. With that company's vast land holdings in the western states, assignments were varied and challenging. Included were aerials, logging operations, coal mines, industrial parks, executive portraits, and, of course, trains for the company's public relations, annual reports, advertising, and brochures. Bob now shoots assignments for various clients around the U.S. and adds to his stock library as time allows.
