The Ferry Building clock tower is truly a symbol of San Francisco. Without it I think San Francisco would look naked. It’s the first thing you see from the Bay Bridge and you know you are coming into San Francisco the most wonderful and exciting city in the country.
The Ferry Building and the clock tower is a landmark for the city and it’s beautiful to photograph. I shot this from Pier One.
I love this shot of the Bay Bridge. I shot this at Pier One which is right next to the Ferry Building. It’s a pretty nice walk if you haven’t been to Pier One and you can very nice angles and able to take great shots of the Bay Bridge and the Ferry Building. It’s definitely worth exploring Pier One if you’re from out of town. And do bring a camera as you’ll snapping tons of pics along the way as there’s lots to see.
I do like the way this picture turned out. The lighting was overcast and the sun was just breaking out so it’s made kind of mysterious. Don’t you think?
Oh the Ferry Building … I love it there. All the best and greatest food choices available on Saturdays during the Farmers Market. I think the Ferry Building is one of the best things that’s happened to San Francisco. Some of my favorite stops there are Cowgirl Creamery, Acme Bread Company, Peets Coffee (although I just noticed Blue Bottle Coffee there now) and Ciao Bella gelato.
I shot these three shots from the window at the Hotel Griffon. These were exposed for 3 seconds each on a tripod. I haven’t used an SLR camera for quite sometime now and I was lucky enough to get great shots with my Canon G10 camera.
I really recommend that camera for anyone that wants almost an SLR but doesn’t want the big bulk of an SLR to carry around with them.
Enjoy the pics and let me know what you think of them.
This shot is looking out the window at the Hotel Griffon to the left at the Ferry Building which is not in this shot and of course the traffic and lights on the Embarcadero. I love this shot as I love the whole yellow tone of the street and cars etc. I love night time shots as the pictures turn out really dramatic and here it’s definitely obvious this picture turned out dramatic.
Again you can see how not clear it is in this shot of the Embarcadero as it isn’t very crisp but luckily I had my small pocket tripod to install my camera on and snap these pictures of the Embarcadero, Bay Bridge and the Ferry Building.
I like how the palm trees line the entire length of the Embarcadero and how they came out in this pic. It almost feels like it’s somewhere in the desert.
I would recommend everyone to stay at the Hotel Griffon just for this beautiful view. I had always wanted to stay down there just to get these shots and finally I did and the shots turned out quite nicely!
Well my first Top Ten Things To Do In San Francisco list was a success (I think) and I had several comments and suggestions from folks to include others so I decided to put together a part 2. In the future I’ll have several more of these Top Ten Lists as well so keep coming back to SFPhotorama for more!
The items on this list and the last one (Top Ten Things To Do In San Francisco) are some of the things I enjoy doing in San Francisco and I recommend it to others as well. When friends and relatives visit San Francisco and ask for recommendations these are some of the places I recommend. Everyone visiting San Francisco should know about this.
