It is summer, and in Fair Oaks that means it is hot. A photography meet-up group planned to meet in Vallejo and travel by ferry into San Francisco. Great escape from the heat, and great way to capture some images with my new Fuji x100f.
The Vallejo Ferry goes to the San Francisco Ferry Building or Pier 41 near Fisherman’s Wharf. The drive is easy, and parking early on this Saturday morning was simple. The parking fee and round-trip ferry ride cost $22.00 (for Seniors). Cheaper than finding parking around the Embarcadero. I like hassle free travel.
We pass under the Oakland Bay Bridge
Satisfied with the image
Arrived at the Ferry Building and right away the group scattered. I like to spend the day photographing with a friend, and so Anne and I forged ahead. Preparing for this day I decided that I would focus on little stories or interactions between people. There was no shortage of people out enjoying the day. The San Francisco Ferry Building was getting busy when we arrived just before 10 a.m.

Lighting was tricky, and we decided to head out to walk the Embarcadero. Plan to meet @ Pier 41 for our ferry ride home at 4 pm.
He shows me what he was eating. Looks yummy.
Families, tourists, and locals crowd the street.
The little red haired girl caught my friend’s eye. I was interested in how the rest of the family reacted to her getting the attention.
There are lots of ways people travel down the Embarcadero.
Many tour buses allow for on/off possibilities

Go-cart tours stopped in traffic
Attention Grabbers from Alcatraz
Segway tourists take off
My friend and I click away as we walk down the street.
Spotted this lone man waiting to cross the street
Having trouble taking everything with him into the restroom
It is about lunch time, and we arrive at Pier 39.
I leave you with the promise to post more from this adventure soon.
Street photography is fun! Where do you go when you want to capture your images?
