San Francisco has some of the finest industrial landscapes for amateur photographers to explore. On Saturday, I explored an area of the city little known to visitors because it has nothing but light industrial facilities (although fans of sound and movies might like to know that the Dolby Labs have an office there).
The big question: could I photograph industrial landscapes and meet this week’s Challenge at the same time?
Actually, no problem.
The area in question lies between 14th Street to the west, 11th Street to the east, Folsom Street to the north and Potrero Avenue to the sort-of-southish. The layout of San Francisco streets can look a tad strange on the map sometimes. My set limit for each composition: three colors, including black and white (even if they technically don’t count as colors). Next up: samples from a new thematic series, Black, White & Blue. Found this long building near the intersection of Florida & Division, close to a Best Buy store.
A couple of additions to White & Blue.
And another new series, Red, White & Blue.
Saturday errands and chores can become much more bearable with a camera at hand.
