Fort Funston - San Francisco, California


Fort Funston, San Francisco... What can I really say about this area? Well... If you have a dog, it's a great beach to take them to, but only if they get along with other dogs. There are many trails that run along the cliff sides, but I headed straight to the south end where rows of old pier pylons can be located. I've driven past this area countless times, but never stopped. I meant to, just never did. That is until I started exploring the area via this site. I have seen a few images from around the area, but again, I never really took the time to look into it.


Being a bit unmotivated the past few days, I figured that this place may help put my direction back into order. I guess my brain has been on overload these days. I have so many ideas... So many places I want to photograph, its just a matter of prioritizing my goals.


As I headed out for the afternoon, I knew the sky would give up something nice, but I also knew that it wouldn't give up much color, so black & white was my goal for the afternoon.


Composed for a square crop, I ended up liking the full frame, but I will stick with my original vision for now.
