Ellis street with a stormy sky reminds me of any downtown area in an american city. It probably changed since I took this picture, just a few years ago. So it is another distorsion of time, when you think this is yesterday and it is in fact five years ago. But here, there is no addition of an imaginative memory coming from other sources than my own eyes. Which makes it less dizzying. I remember the only thing that pushed me to press the shutter button at the time was the dark cloud at the end of the street. Rain was coming and I had better be ready for it or run back to my hotel on Bush street. I checked the place on Google Street and the big building reflecting the light on the right is a Hilton hotel, with a swimming pool on the roof. I couldn't have guessed that from the street. This ability to check places on this world map has totally changed the way you discover an unknown city. It kind of takes out surprise.
