Alleyways, pathways, and one-way streets of San Francisco's Telegraph Hill: 20 August 2016

I decided to view the old narrow one-way streets, alleyways, and pathways that make Telegraph Hill such an intriguing and delightful place to explore. In fact, I did not see all of the locations that I hoped to visit. A second and perhaps a third exploration will be necessary. I used a wide-angle 9mm fisheye body cap lens to take the photographs.
