Photographer's Note

No mistake from which city this is from ...
One of the advantages of jet lag is being almost alone on the streets in early morning.
San Franciscos famous cable cars, once a city wide operation with23 lines of which only 3 remain, are one of the city's most iconic sights. Although they are used to some extent by the local commuters, the vast majority of its 7 million yearly passengers are tourists.
The cable cars are operated by a two man team, one the gripman who operates the cable grip and one the conductor who not only collects the fare but also operates the rear breaks.
