Blade Runner: San Francisco

Terry Tsai put the music from Blade Runner 2049 to drone footage shot over San Francisco yesterday when we all woke to orange apocalyptic skies. It is simultaneously awesome and spooky. A far better representation of the day than the snaps I was going to post.

Growing up in this town, I've lived through a lot of stuff from earthquakes to the AIDS epidemic to freak snowstorms. All have been unnerving in their own way, none took my breath away like yesterday. I've been trying understand why. I can only conclude that the aesthetic of the day was overwhelmingly similar to the end of day visions of authors I've read and film directors I've watched. Chilling, really.
