There is that rare, sunny San Francisco day, but I seem to be there only on grey days. Which do make for a muted, almost monochromatic color palette, a nice change for me.
These abandoned silos were built during the Carter Administration to facilitate wheat shipments to Russia, which was at that time suffering from a food crisis. After a short period of usage, they became defunct and today lie in a condemned state. It’s eerie to see gigantic structures with gaping holes where windows once were. The tugboat in the foreground is a San Francisco Coast guard boat that came out to where I stood on the bridge, just to check out what I was upto.
View from the Ferry Building, with Coit Tower in the distance. The clouds did really look like watercolor puddles.And the not-so-celebrated Bay Bridge.I lied about all-muted colors. Just couldn’t do a whole day with no brights! Bikes and the TransAmerica building. The sun finally broke through just as I was done with my day of sketching.
