Thanks to a tweet by the all-around awesome Plug1, we stumbled upon Alapan‘s photoblog (mostly). Mostly pictures of the streets of San Francisco, and mostly in black and white, the light in his photographs has a melancholic beauty that gives them a rare and somewhat sad beauty.

Although he doesn’t focus on any particular neighborhood, I think I spotted a few shots of the Tenderloin. I’m not sure about this one taken on Geary, but I’m pretty certain the one below was taken at O’Farrell and Taylor.

And if you can’t get enough of Alapan, check out his Flickr photostream.
