San Francisco Streets

A cyclist races across across an almost empty junction in San Francisco.

I just love the sign on top of the building. Totally out of place amid the beautiful architecture and detail of it’s resting place.

    I think you found the best spot to take a picture of that building Donncha. The lines of the junction and the building shape are perfect together.

    I like the way you’ve echo’d the rounded corner of the building using the white lines on the street. Nice composition.

    I agree with Gareth, love the repetition of the lines and the symmetry. Clever shot.

    Thanks for commenting. That may have been on my mind when I took the picture but I can’t remember. What I do recall is the lines on the road drew my attention and they seemed to point towards the advert on the top of the building!

    Where was this photo taken? I recognize it, but I can’t place where.
