Embarcadero means a “place to embark”. Looking up this information led me to this 1906 documentary, A Trip Down Market Street.Click on the link and travel down the road. Taken from a cable car weeks before the 1906 earthquake. It is amazing to see what traffic was like then.
My friend and I walked down the Embarcadero to Pier 39. Stop for lunch and do more people watching.
When you grab some fast food you are warned to watch out for birds. They are known for helping themselves to your delicious seafood and sour dough bread.
Arriving at Pier 41 to take the ferry back to Vallejo.
Fun day and lots of fun images to add to my memories.
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.
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 Buildingwas 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.
Families, tourists, and locals crowd the street.
There are lots of ways people travel down the Embarcadero.
My friend and I click away as we walk down the street.
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?
