This is a scene looking behind 49 Geary Street, one of the main sites for the First Thursday art gallery openings that I recently discussed. I felt that the image as framed here compared well with what I saw on the walls of some of the galleries.
Note the seismic bracing on the side of the building.
Great shot – the variety of lines is engaging (if not a little unnerving, though I guess it means you’re relatively safe in this alley…!).
Wow. I am affraid of heights. This is pretty scary looking to me. haha
Happy WW! Mine is at : http://ordinaryandawesome.blogspot.com/search/label/WW
Happy WW :))
Waaaaaaaaaaw great shot, its a very coooooool building 😉
Interesting to see external beams like that (if that’s what they are!). Makes me think of the Pompidou Museum in Paris.
The external beams are quite common here, part of seismic retrofitting for older buildings. I suppose the concept is a bit unnerving, but one gets used to it.
I like the lines in this shot, especially that it’s taken from mid building 🙂
I love the angle…it creates certain illusion!
The supporting lines of the structure. Interesting perspective.
I should have guessed. I wonder if the bracing every comes off? I though every thing had to be retrofitted long ago. Happy WW
Cats love alleays.
Great shot. I love the varying lines within the image. Happy WW
Awesome shot! Lighting, composition, contrast… just excellent!
That is wonderful! I do miss the city!
Awesome shot! Happy WW!
Ah, seismic bracing. They recently retrofitted my wife’s school out with that, but on the inside.
Nice shot — I like the angles and the light. Good job!
If I was an alley-cat, I would enjoy taking a stroll down there!
Not living or working around tall buildings, we just don’t think about the views –
great picture I love to look at the large building while in the city
Great photo! It looks interesting there!
Great geometry in that picture!
Awesome looks….love the angle………
I like this view very much. Is that an elevator in the bottom of the frame?
Well, it looks like it could withstand an earthquake……lol. Thats what I call support! Happy WW and thanks for stopping by:)
Ahh thanks for explaining. I had to go over to the other blog to understand better.
This is quite a good shot and the lines do blend very well.
Those look like some good climbing places for cats!
Beautiful artistic shot, def. gallery worthy!
I love the lighting!
nice shot. thanks for visiting my WW!
Love the industrial look. Those cross bars look great in the composition.
All those beams, the way they’re placed and the colour – make it look like they’re part of the building’s architectural design.
Such an interesting photo with varying shapes and colors. Thanks for sharing!
Nice picture. Neat angle. Clean alley.
So nice of them to have it all lit up for you. 🙂
Love your photos!
I like the architecture of the building; simply symetrical trianglar form.
Seismic bracing, we don’t get that over here in the UK. It looks a lot more like facade retention used on historic buildings. Great shot thought, good play of light and dark, particularity the pale tones.
