I'm using this and the Golden Gate bridge photos for small pics on my San Francisco flamenco magazine website. This is a great service. Thanks for the public domain photos.

I am using this photo for my geography class. We need to build a website for a particular city/state and show images reflecting various elements such as culture, topography, and recreational resources.

I plan on using the pic in a website for a story I'm writing with a friend. The story takes place in San Francisco.

We may be using this photo for a web announcement to our members of an upcoming member meeting at a professional conference in SF. Thank you so much for making this and your other work available. We are a non-profit org that supports engineering and science logistics for the geophysics community.

Hi! I am going to use this picture in a project I am doing with a new youth-club on this tiny island where we live. The kids are going to paint it themselves on the walls in the "disco"-part of the club, I am teaching them how. It is a perfect image for what we need, thank you for letting us use it!

Hi, I'd like to use this image to help me make a backdrop for a musical number. I was wondering if I might be able to get the full resolution version to edit off of instead of a reduced web size. Thanks so much! You can email me at ckateff (AT) gmail (DOT) com and I can give you some more detail about the project.

I just read your FAQ about getting high res versions. Sorry to be annoying.

I am using this to promote a conference in San Francisco. Thank you very much for allowing me to use it.
