The shining cross at 666 Filbert

While walking in North Beach neighborhood of San Francisco–in the area named "Little Italy"–I noticed the sun reflecting off a cross between thew belltowers of Saints Peter and Paul Church on Filbert Street, opposite of Washington Square.


I did a few shots around 3 pm, with a stark contrast and blue skies, but decided to use this "antiqued" version for its most expressive cross. The church was featured in the movie "Bedazzled" and is also famous for its connection with Joe DiMaggio.
