Master Brick Masonry of Fort Point

The magnificent Fort Point is located right under the Golden Gate Bridge, on the South side. It was built to protect San Francisco harbor from Confederate and foreign attach during the and after the US Civil War.

While its many arched walkways are considered to be a great showcase for the art of master brick masonry, it is also great for some powerful photography.

Here is a great example of the “feel” of this place. I just LOVE these corridors that disappear into the distance, no distractions or decorations other than the brickwork, arches, faded colors and those wonderful lines. This is agreat place for a weekend visit (the place is only open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday). There are superb views of the Golden Gate Bridge from the rooftop, which is easily accessible.

This is a 3-shot HDR, each shot is 2 stops apart.
