North Beach, San Francisco

Photograph by Michael Filippoff, National Geographic Your Shot

"Whether you're moving thru in a hurry, or easing into a cozy and warm dinner, nothing beats San Francisco's North Beach on a cold and rainy night," says Your Shot community member Michael Filippoff, who took this photo. "A hot espresso and a sidewalk seat to watch the world go by? Yes, please!"

Filippoff's image was chosen for our "I Heart My City" assignment by senior photo producer Sarah Polger, who blogs about the challenges of whittling down thousands of submissions to a select few.
