Down by the Bay

I was going through my portfolio on aminus3 and saw I had never posted this image. As I seem to be stuck on San Francisco, this is as good a time as any. It is a film image I took in my pre-digital days in 2003. It has always been one of my favorites.

Nicely done. I am curious about that one bright red panel on the bridge, upper left corner of the photo.

Glad you brought this one out of the archives. Lovely colors and softness from the mist. And I'm with Craig - Happy 500!! That's impressive to have so much quality work out there.
