Powell Street Lights, original pastel

The cable cars of San Francisco make their way up and down the steep incline of Powell Street. Naturally, I was a huge fan of these cars because of the fantastic street views they offer, although I found the pungent smell of their hot brakes a little disconcerting during the descents.

According to one of the cable car operators, only 10% of the job applicants who try to become operators pass the physical requirements because of the strength needed to operate the hand brakes. Given how loaded down the vehicles are with tourists like me, it’s clearly no job for slouches.
