    You evil so and so. There's no way I'd ever have guessed that!
    I didn't even know they existed...shame on you for being so obscure. In future may I please request you stick to indoor decorations, where at least if I can't work out what it is, I can refer to a dulux colour chart and make fun of your paint scheme. Respectfully yours...

    Yes, and it works. It's behind what used to be called the Cliff House, or maybe your more familiar with Pronto Pups. OK, near the Sutro Baths, then head down hill towards Seal Rock.

    OK, that's pretty close. The road along the ocean by Ocean Beach is called The Great Highway, at the north end it's called Pt. Lobos Ave. The GIANT CAMERA is right where Pt. Lobos avenue takes the hook inland (eastward) at the top of the hill.

    Oh, yeah, that is close. I've only been there one time. I thought I recognized one of the rocks with all the bird crap on it. Probably a bunch of those of the coast there.

    There's a shot of that camera on Google Earth which someone took from the Cliff House.
