Another Reason Why I Live Here

I decided to take a long lunch today with my buddy Tom who is visiting from NYC (Tom happens to be a very talented web developer — his company is called Local Galaxy). Anyhoo, I decided to take Tom up to one of my favorite spots in the Bay Area, the Marin Headlands.

It took me exactly 25 minutes to drive from my office, which is completely on the other side of San Francisco, to where I took this photo. ‘Nuff said.

Just over the bridge is The Presidio, where George Lucas has his brand-spanking new production facilities. Along with Lucas-owned Industrial Light & Magic, there are a handful of large & small production and post-production companies, such as The Orphanage.
