    This is the view from one of the artists’ studio buildings at Pier 70 in the Mission Bay (or “Dogpatch”) neighborhood of San Francisco. It’s an industrial area along the bay front, and a place I found very inspirational for photography.

    In this photo, we are looking north towards my own neighborhood, “South of Market” or SOMA. (I will let readers ponder at their leisure the concept of looking “north” at a neighborhood labelled as “south”.) A couple of notable landmarks from SOMA that one can see in the distance are the Rincon Hill Building (the tall skinny building in the center of the frame) and AT&T park, where the San Francisco Giants play.

    Posting this photo today is also a proverbial “kick in the tuchus” to get around to my reviews of Open Studios from the weekend of October 24th and 25th. I will hopefully do that soon.

    Wow, from this angle, San Francisco looks so much more industrial/urban than I typically picture it.

    Happy WW!

    I do not like the industrial aspect of SFO.

    I’ve been to SF so many times, but it’s always a fresh perspective through your eyes and lens. Happy WW

    You’ve really captured the gritty industrial feel of the areas down along the bay. Nicely shot.

    Such a solid old building surrounded by growth that seems delicate in the form of those cranes.

    My brother used to live SOMA. It is a fun neighborhood.

    That’s a great shot. So much going on.

    I never would have thought SF could look like that–it’s so far from the typical idealistic shots you get. Thanks for sharing a unique perspective.

  15. The Right Blue Says:

    Definitely suggests “growth.”

    P.S. Got your message about the ‘kitten on the keys’ and had a look. :)

  16. Daisy Says:

    I wonder what the cranes are doing? Where I live there is almost no new construction going on anywhere.

  17. Cafe Au Lait Says:

    I don’t seem to mind industrial areas but you made this one look really pretty. Great shot!

    Have a great day.

    Mine are here and here.

    Cool view of San Fran, definitely not your typical postcard print. I really like the sense of life I get from this shot.

    Very good! Even though it’s far off, the city skyline is still what draws my attention immediately!

    Looks great, love how industrial it all looks. Reminds of the industrial estate where the guy off fight club lives for some reason.
