I love photographing the Bay to Breakers.
Once again this year I covered the start of the race.
There were plenty of people running in costumes.
There were also many people sneaking onto the course without paying the race fee.
But actually, Bay to Breakers is not about the contest.
It's an event that attracts spectators from all over.
Many people had messages with their costumes.
And some people don't have costumes.
But later on in the course, the party gets started.
Some really inventive.
Even on the rooftops.
It was a fun day once again.
