5:58 AM (Tuesday - 18 May 2010)
Beyond the tourists and the restaurants and the souvenir shops - Pier 45 at San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf is where the real commercial fish industry is found. Here are the cleaning and packing houses that load up the trucks for delivery to restaurants throughout the Bay Area and beyond. You can (faintly) see the Golden Gate Bridge in the distance.
I hadn't taken many photographs recently. I've been busy and the weather has been fairly flat for the past few weeks. Hazy, or cloudless, or rain.
But this day seemed inspired. It was raining as I crossed the Bay Bridge. I grabbed some coffee and found myself here in light rain. All of the pictures for the next several days were taken within a two hour period from this one.
