The Skyline of Lower California Street

Stephen Phillips (San Francisco, United States) on 13 October 2010 in Architecture and Portfolio.

San Francisco

Five blocks from my office - it was a beautiful day to take a walk and I'm glad I carried my camera.

You might notice that I haven't moved - pointing the lens up at the same place where I made yesterday's capture. Still on a tripod. There's 101 California Street off my left shoulder, 55 California across Davis Street to my right.

[tomorrow]: a couple of more images from my Transit Center demolition series - taken over the past few days.

Love city shots looking up like this, and the light is wonderful, I am too lazy to carry my tripod into the city everyday, if I drove in I probably would though

Wonderful! Thanks for the reminder to look up once in awhile. Easy to forget how different (and cool) the world can look from upside down.
