Discovering San Francisco in Black and White

I've been to San Francisco before, and whilst I have enjoyed the view from the Golden Gate Viewpoint on a foggy afternoon, and taken the mandatory touristic photos, I really don't enjoy that type of shots. Today, I've decided to post a selection from my latest trip to San Fran, where I explore the type of photos I enjoy taking - All with the X-Pro1, naturally!

Excelentes fotos! Muy definido tu estilo y técnica. Una visión Stephanisica de St. Pancho, muy interesante observar detenidamente cada una pues te transporta al momento de la toma. Felicidades y gracias por compartir!

wonderful! Thanks so much! Can I ask what was the b&w setting you used for those shots? I love the "raw" and edgy feeling you get- bought an xpro to suppliment my M9- just love it! Really appreciate any details you can share

Thanks!

In camera b&w setting, or processed from raw?

Wonderful!

Not to criticize, but my initial reaction to the images is that they kind of make me glad I have not been to San Francisco, it looks depressing kind of Third-World, not inviting like the usual stuff with the bridge. Having never been there I can't say if it is accurate or just artistic intent, but it certainly seems gritty and
harsh, kind of film noir -ish. I guess in some sense, it is just reality without the color. To me it makes me think that it is a good
place to leave rather than reside. It seems more harsh a place than an interesting one. I mean with some street photography there is some kind of odd human interest thing going on, these photos, to me show a world of alienation kind of feel. IMHO. I am sure others will feel very differently.
