Here are a couple of fun shots taken last Friday at Pier 39 in San Francisco. Doug Kaye and I had spent a couple of hours in the Mission District before coming back to Rincon Annex for lunch. After lunch, we caught a very crowded F street car and headed down to Pier 39. It was a beautiful Friday – and the pier was very busy – perhaps a Spring Break week for some folks?
Photographing in thick crowds can be really challenging – it’s really hard to get any decent subject isolation. I was able to get a couple of fun shots when we left the main area and headed out to the edge of the pier leading down to where the sea lions hang out. The image above shows some folks standing high on an overlook taking pictures of the sea lions. The image below is another fun one – a group of young women enjoying themselves at Pier 39! Both of these images were shot with my Fujifilm X100T.
