Back to the Bay – Vaillancourt Fountain – Québec libre! – San Francisco

Vaillancourt Fountain - San Francisco - 2013

Last Friday, Doug Kaye and I met up at one of our favorite photo venues in San Francisco – Embarcadero Center and environs. Turns out it’s easy for Doug to catch the ferry in and it’s similarly easy for me to take I-280 into town and swing around the Embarcadero to park.

On Friday, the famous (infamous?) Vaillancourt Fountain – Québec libre! – in Justin Herman Plaza was empty of water – and Doug had fun walking into what would have been the pool of water at the base of the fountain and taking some photos.

This is image I shot is a much moodier version of the fountain – quickly post-processed in monochrome – which, to me, brings out its essential randomness!

After a couple of hours of photography in the morning, we headed to one of our favorite spots for lunch at the Ferry Building – Slanted Door. Wow, we had an amazing lunch – it doesn’t get much better than that!
