Gate 3


This gate leads to the China Basin boat dock in San Francisco. I thought the top of the rounded gate had an interesting contrast with the boats' masts in the distance.

I liked that one - lots of perspective into the distance - great depth.

Thank you for a nice comment!

Lynette, thank you for taking time out to read my post even under your stressful situation.

Runee, Ah...getting good depth of field is sometimes complex at least for me. So, I'm happy here. Thanks for noticing. :D

I wonder why it is so important to close the entrances so thoroughly.

Sandy Carlson said...

I like the shapes, perspective, and color. Great shot!

Dana a/k/a Sunshine said...

Yep, we could definitely (and maybe one day we can) hang out and scope shots...only we'd be pushing each other out of the way for the shots - ha ha. I think you have a very artistic eye!!!

Jean M Fogle said...

I like the way the masts lead to the infinity point, nice shot!

Andrea said...

Interesting shapes and beautiful colors. Great shot.

Dirty Knees said...

Your world is fascinating! Thanks for sharing it.

Wow, you just keep coming with the greatest pictures. I love this one!

Hpy, I think the boats are expensive and they don't want trespassers, but if someone really want to get through, they can do it.

Sandy, thanks for your visit and comment. I like interesting shapes & lines just happened to notice these during my walk by the wharf.

Dana, I think we won't get far. I do go shooting with my camera club and we can spend a long time in one spot.

Jean, yeah, the masts go far far beyond what you can see. I was amazed so many boats were docked there and this was just one row.

Andrea, it was amazing they were all docked since it was a nice day otherwise I would have missed the photo op.

Dirty Knees, glad I was able to share this local attraction with you.

Dot, what a compliment. I am finally kicking myself to go out to take more photos this year. Glad I had the incentive of blogging to show it to others. :)

This is a very unique way to frame an interesting pic of the boats. Great capture!

AVCR8TEUR said...

Thanks NYCIndividual. This is right behind AT&T Park and you can see it anytime.

Really like this composition with the curves and angles. Well done.
I lived in Pacifica for 41 years before moving 7 months ago. Long time to have the fog be our close personal friend. I do miss seeing the ocean every day but not too much else.

Very good the photograph, the subject is marvellous, as the frame.

I remember this gate in Sanfran. I really love Sanfran which is very nice city. Great capture too.

Neva said...

This is a GREAT photo!

AVCR8TEUR said...

Thanks Photowannabe! Wow 41 years in Pacifica?! Did you ever see the sun?

Kostas/Neva, Thanks for your compliments!

DigitalShutterMania, You have a great memory! There are lots of photo ops in SF and it can keep us photographers busy for years.
