This Image was made a few weeks back during a walk around Coit Tower after sunset. The best way to capture it was strait on, which meant I stood in the road (middle of the road) ;) I was there for a few hours as it took a second (long second) to figure out the right amount of time needed as well as traffic consistency. During this time a crowd had gathered around me wanting to see my camera screen and so it took even longer and I missed my last Bart and had to take a expensive Taxi ride home.
What, a boring intersection? This area south of Market Street contains a main transit terminal, and for so many years was dark, dingy, and depressing, surrounded by empty lots. I was so startled to see this same corner transformed!
I was amazed to see so much light and palm trees, and cranes signaling new construction in the area. With perfect spring weather on Tuesday, I couldn't help but snap :-)
Life is definitely sweeter in both ways, when in the City by the Bay, enjoying its many fine streets, and also when visiting Ghirardelli's old Chocolate factory and sampling a new flavor -- for me dark chocolate is always best. The image was just from a drive by but the feeling was still there, inspired by the location. Happy Friday.
