Brick facade of an abandoned building.
SOMA District - San Francisco

To me - what was amazing here is that the early morning sun was behind the building. The wonderful light and soft shadows is from windows of a tall building across the street - behind me - reflecting back these pools of light. Eye candy.

I'd love to see what's inside this old place.

@Viewfinder: Good morning from your 'West Coast Bureau', Glenn. This was a large vehicle repair facility. The partial sign in the image reads 'Trucks'. In its final days - it specialized in Corvettes. It has been boarded up for several years along with the property next to it. They are butt up against the sky way feeding on and off The Bay Bridge - just four blocks off of Market Street. The pending sound of the wreckers-ball is palpable.
