Columbus Avenue on a Misty Morn

A different angle on the same intersection we saw yesterday. The Transamerica Building is off in the distance at center. The spires of Saints Peter & Paul Church at left.

A Mason Street Cable Car making a near empty - early morning run towards Fisherman's Wharf. For the grip-man and brakeman - this must be a most welcome 'calm before the storm' part of their day. Throngs of tourists will be packed on every available inch of space before long.

what an awesome view - love the lines and distant spires.......I am sure that I wouldn't have the guts to stand in the middle of the street like that though!!!

That's quite a merging of streets. Seems like a great place to stand in the middle of the street:-)
