    This is part of an old WWII-era installation in the Marin Headlands, overlooking the Pacific Ocean north of San Francisco. I have posted pictures from here before, it offers a wealth of photographic opportunities.

    I was using this photo tonight as part of a promotion for my next show, a combined music + poetry reading at the Headlands Center for the Arts this coming Sunday. So it seemed like a good choice for WW. It also appeared in the video slideshow that accompanied my Open Studios photography show last week (though it was not one of the prints).

    It looks like an abandoned place. Great capture.

    I played too. Mine are here and here.

    I wonder what it was used for? That oxidized green color is pretty.

    Great shot, probably a lot of interesting history in that place.

    Is this an old abandoned WWII installation? Those places fascinate me. We have a bunch of old watchtowers and bunkers on the Delaware coast–so haunting.

    That is a great shot. It just ‘shouts’ history. Visiting from Wordless Wednesday at Wordless Wednesday.

    I’ve been there once. Great view of the bay and the GG bridge. You’re right, lots of photo ops there just like what you posted.
