Monochromia: Fishing at Pier 7

Another week of wonderful photos on Monochromia! Hop on over and visit me and all the other contributors. Black and white photos are the bomb (okay, I’ll stop now…).

The morning after my sunset photo shoot in San Francisco, I was up bright and early to spend the day exploring the city on foot. I began at Pier 1 on the Embarcadero, meandered through the area around Fisherman’s Wharf to Ghirardelli Square (where I enjoyed a salted caramel sundae thankyouverymuch), and ended up an hour before sunset on the Municipal Pier at Aquatic Park with its sweeping views of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. I don’t know how far I walked, but the stars were shining when I finally made my way back on my last legs to the Wharf in search of a taxi. To the driver who rescued me, I am forever grateful. To this fisherman at Pier 7, thanks for the great photo op!

Visit for more of my work.

    • Love how you see the photo – thanks! I read yesterday that Pier 7 was purposely built to be picturesque. There’s a wonderful shot to be had looking down the length of the pier with the lampposts on both sides disappearing in the distance, but it was filled with other tourists. I opted for this one 🙂


Any thoughts?
