While crawling along 19th Ave in San Francisco heading north traffic to get on the Golden Gate Bridge was awful.  I spied this SFFD truck as we approached it I got my iPhone camera out to make a photo of those doors.

I went out with one of my photography groups to do a little night photography Saturday evening.

After the sun went down Middle Harbor Shoreline’s park security drove by announcing the park was closed it was time to leave so, several of us headed to another park that stayed opened a few hours longer.  This is one image I made while waiting for the Crescent Moon to sink lower into the city skyline.

Bay Bridge East Span Pedestrian Bicycle Path

What you’re looking at is the Oakland/San Francisco Bay Bridge East Span Pedestrian-Bicycle path in front, mid ground are the tops of the Bay Bridge, and behind that are the two new high rises in the process of being built. The tallest is the new Salesforce Tower. It will be the tallest building in San Francisco, and will be the second tallest building west of the Mississippi when complete.  At its completion it will stand 1,070 ft (326 m) tall and be the center piece of the Transbay Transit Center in downtown San Francisco.

The Wilshire Grand Center building located in Los Angeles is the tallest skyscraper in California.

The other skyscraper you see with cranes is going to be the new Transbay Tower…I think.

Someone let me know if I’m wrong please.

Over on the right by itself is the Trans America Building; a shining beacon in the night.

Here’s a small collection of Red Doors from a walk-about in San Francisco earlier this year.

N°290

Red Door N°290

N°341 & N°343:

An odd angle, I know. If I remember correctly there was a car or something in front of these doors that bugged me so I photographed them this way.  I like the reflection of the window and tree branches in the arched windows.

N° 341 and N° 343 Red Doors

…and lastly, N°443 & N°445 with a bonus little White door. 🙂

N°443 & 445 Red Doors

The right door has a lovely reflection of a tree too which goes nicely with the potted plants on the stairs.  This hill was on the Steep side I recall.

The Moon was 99.9% full last night and my friend Dali asked if I wanted to go up to the city and photograph it over Coit Tower. Of course I said yes!

It was breezy and chilly, but beautiful!

 

Moon and Coit Tower

Coit Tower:

” Coit Tower, a slender white concrete column rising from the top of Telegraph Hill, has been an emblem of San Francisco’s skyline since its completion in 1933, a welcoming beacon to visitors and residents alike. Its observation deck, reached by elevator (tickets can be purchased in the gift shop), provides 360-degree views of the city and bay, including the Golden Gate and Bay bridges.

The simple fluted tower is named for Lillie Hitchcock Coit, a wealthy eccentric and patron of the city’s firefighters. Coit died in 1929, leaving a substantial bequest “for the purpose of adding to the beauty of the city I have always loved.” The funds were used to build both the tower and a monument to Coit’s beloved volunteer firefighters, in nearby Washington Square. The tower was designed by the firm of Arthur Brown, Jr., architect of San Francisco’s City Hall. Contrary to popular belief, Coit Tower was not designed to resemble a firehose nozzle.” http://sfrecpark.org/destination/telegraph-hill-pioneer-park/coit-tower/

More information about Coit Tower can be found at sfrecpark.org’s link above.

 

I was gone most the week-end so, I’m behind with emails and blogs. I’m playing catch up again. 🙂
