San Francisco tour - where not to go?
Sep 15, 2012

I am planning to be in San Francisco with my wife for 4-5 days and wanted to make sure where it should be safe to go and shoot. We will be taking the 5D2, 7D (my wife's), the 70-200mm f/2.8 II and the 24-105mm f/4 L.

Is it really safe to go SF downtown with a big white lens (or any lens)? Where are the safest areas to stay? What areas are to be avoided?

First, I booked a hotel in Emeryville, then, after reading horrible stories about that neighbourhood, re-booked to Pleasant Hill. Is it a nice place to stay or should I move down closer to Pleasanton or the Silicon Valley?

Any advice would be highly appreciated... this is my first trip to SF and I don't want to get it spoiled
