The weather drove me out of the house and down to the beach today.
Forget Pier 39 and see the old ships at the Hyde Street Pier. For $5 you get a week's worth of time to explore them. They are so evocative of another era on San Francisco Bay. This is a detail from the Tugboat Hercules. I enjoy the bold maritime colors and the play of water and light on them, as here in a shot i call "Sailor's Eye."
