Since it’s a lazy Saturday, I’ve been combing through last week’s commute photos (keeps me off the streets ;^). This one is a view of the Presidio overpass construction zone outside of the support posts image I posted earlier this week. Lots of contrast going on here.
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm. Black and white conversion: Nik Silver Efex Pro.

This is another image I got today. This huge building in the Presidio has been refurbished, but looks to be almost totally vacant. There’s one car in the parking area in front and zero cars (except mine) in the adjacent lots. Kind of surreal on a Wednesday at 3ish in the afternoon.

For months I’ve been admiring the cranes at the construction site around the new merge being built from Hwy 1 to Doyle Drive in the Presidio. I really wanted to get up close with the camera but I was told, “No hardhat, no safety vest, no entrance.” Guess I need to get a hardhat and vest and keep them in the car.

During today’s commute home, I took a turn through the Presidio. I wound around a bit and found myself driving up a short, narrow road on the northwest side of the San Francisco National Cemetery. The road ended at a locked gate–perhaps an entrance for workers. No one was around so I parked and grabbed a few shots of these hillside graves:

San Francisco has been shrouded in fog for most of the summer. Makes me glad I don’t live in the city. Today’s “run and gun” photos are apropos of what the tourist have been experiencing. I pulled off just before the toll plaza and snapped these:
