So sticking with the architecture type theme I thought I'd post the photos I did while I was in San Francisco this past August. First on my list being there was Alcatraz! Not only for the "abandoned" buildings -- using the word abandoned pretty loosely -- but for the history and chance for a paranormal encounter (which did not happen unfortunately haha).
There were unfortunately a lot of buildings that we could not get into -- of course those are the ones I really wanted to see!
Looking out over the bay
Can't have at least a couple HDR'd pictures when doing architecture.
This building is being taken over by nature again.
I really love lines and vanishing points. These long corridors that were where the guards would walk to look down on the prisoners when they were in general population were amazing.
This was the morgue that was later repurposed as the generator room.
The window and radiator in the library.
Creepy little door under the stairs.
We stayed in Berkeley, California at a hotel on the marina. After a day spent in the city we got back in time for sunset.
Past the marina to the ocean to catch the sun going down.
While trying -- unsuccessfully to make it to the Golden Gate Bridge -- we walked along the coast.
While San Francisco wasn't my favorite city, I prefer San Diego, it was quite the experience and was glad for the time spent with my mom and all of the new things that we got to see.
