As I was planning a recent trip to in San Francisco I made sure to buy tickets for a tour on the very bus that Timothy “Speed” Levitch now gives guided tours with… I rode for 2 or 3 of the legs of the double decker bus tour taking in the detailed stories and facts he so brilliantly bestows upon the busload, and I enjoyed making a few portraits of him along the way. I wish I could have taken his tour in NYC, as I’m sure it would have been amazing. Most well-known as the subject of the amazing documentary “The Cruise,” Timothy is also in several films, most notably as himself speaking poetically atop the Brooklyn Bridge at the end of Richard Linklater’s Waking Life, that you can see here on youtube… though of course he was animated in that, but it’s most definately him.
