Not that I’m an expert by any means, but I’ve been trying to push myself a little bit with my compositions. It’s easy for me to get stuck doing the same thing over and over. For instance, on my way from the Presidio parking lot to take the Golden Gate Bridge, I decided to look at other possible views of the bridge. It was literally steps to the magnificent vista of the bridge where I noticed this old battery and could see the Golden Gate through the structure, so I thought it might be fun to try and get a shot. I like seeing new and different compositions with this bridge and I don’t think I’ve ever seen this one before.
The building is one of several gun batteries that were built in the 1890’s for coastal defense and were abandoned after World War II. There are lots of them scattered around the shoreline of San Francisco.
I hope you enjoy the image!
