Today it’s another local shoot (yeah, being born close to San Francisco is stupidly fortunate): the Sutro Baths and surrounding military batteries.
And once again, I don’t mean AA or D cell. I mean places to mount nasty artillery that will pincushion any idjit dumb enough to try and pass the Golden Gate unwanted.
This Kurosawa-esque shot is of Battery Chester, near the Sutro Baths, a popular spa spot in the early part of the 20th century.
This is an actual battery mount. Imagine 70 years ago, no trees in the way, and a clear shot (pun alert!) at the Pacific Ocean.
God knows why this was present. Not a good reason, I’m sure. Nice image, but rather disturbing.
But there are happier vistas afoot!
And here is the walk up the hill, with the spas at the bottom left, in the dark. The light trail was a classmate making her way up the hill during my exposure.
