San Francisco, from the Ferry Building to the Pacific Ocean: 28 August 2016

This was a walk across the northern portion of San Francisco. We started at the Ferry Building and finished near the Pacific Ocean. The weather was glorious. I used a wide-angle 9mm fisheye body cap lens to take the photographs. Donna accompanied me on this jaunt.
