  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Well, it looks like it could withstand an earthquake……lol. Thats what I call support! Happy WW and thanks for stopping by:)

  4. 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.

  5. All those beams, the way they’re placed and the colour – make it look like they’re part of the building’s architectural design.

    Happy WW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. 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.
