That first picture of SF looks fake.....I could be wrong. Something about it just looks off to me.

I don't consider Southern California to be "Southwestern" at all-even despite its physical location technically being SW.

To me Southwest refers to Arizona and New Mexico, maybe parts of Nevada and Texas too.

Baltimore has southern influences but it is definitely part of the northeast corridor.

SF has NOTHING to do with the Southwest. I don't know anyone who has related the two. SF is purely Northern Californian, no Southwest influence going on at all.

This analogy is weird. Parts of Virginia are "Southern" and Baltimore is closer to Virginia than San Francisco is any Southwest city. Even if you don't accept that Baltimore is closer to Charleston, South Carolina than I think San Francisco is to any Southwestern city. (And if Charleston isn't Southern I wonder what it is)

It might have made more sense to pick Los Angeles or Fresno for the Californian city.
