Distant Cliff House

On a windy, grey and foggy day at Ocean Beach, the Seal Rocks, Cliff House as well as Sutro Heights look forlorn in the distance when viewed through the vandalized, once coin-operated binoculars.

 

Through this broken viewfinder located on the ocean promenade at the Great Highway, one can distinguish the Camera Obscura on the left of the Cliff House. In the far distance to the left, the mountains of Marin Headlands pierce through the fog.

 

I have been a volunteer at the National Park Service Visitors Center at the Cliff House, the one that has since been closed; it's where I became interested in Adolph Sutro and his legacy that still continues to influence this area of San Francisco.
