Views of UCSF

UCSF sits atop a hill in San Francisco, which gives everyone a beautiful view of the city. Last year, someone mentioned that one of the things that they love is "beautiful views," which I thought was intriguing because I had never considered "views" as a commodity or interest, but rather something incidental or spontaneous.

Colorful, gaudy houses are a signature feature of San Francisco. Funky pastel is an architectural style in the city.

Strange column of black and white portraits located in front of the Medical Sciences building. No idea what it represents, but maybe something artsy.

Statue of mother bear in front of the UCSF library.

The hill near my home! Look at those lines of perspective!

UCSF Medical Center at Parnassus, where we get a lot of patient contact.

On clear days, you can always see the Golden Gate Bridge. Sometimes, I will find myself gazing outside looking for the red towers, and seem to derive a curious comfort from its presence.

Irving Street!

Incredible photos, your love of the city shows in 'em - I hope it's OK that we've used the Med Center one on the mainpage of, with a photo credit, to go with news of the new U.S. News & World Report rankings.
