My photos from around San Francisco. A way to annoy myself as I struggle with various templates that I don't like and only barely present things the way I want. This latest version has a comments feature which actually works, so relieve my workday tedium and make a comment today.

These two belong to a shipyard which is more and more falling into disrepair. At the moment, these cranes are in the middle of a fenced off field of dirt. Doesn't seem like they'll be used again anytime soon.

Carfloat at Pier 52. The tracks could be elevated or lowered to load freight cars onto a ferry or barge. This carfloat was operated by the Western Pacific Railroad. Now abandoned and in disrepair -- big holes in the pier where you can easily fall into the water.
