the visible wor(l)d, between 🇨🇦 and 🇩🇪

Pier 14, Port of San Francisco

San Francisco’s present-day waterfront and port facility remains important as

“… a public enterprise committed to promoting a balance of maritime, recreational, industrial, transportation, public access and commercial activities on a self-supporting basis through appropriate management and development of the waterfront for the benefit of the public.”

At a length of 637 feet (194 metres), Pier 14 on The Embarcadero reopened in 2006 as a pedestrian-pier built on top of the breakwater which was used to protect ferries entering the nearby ferry terminal.

With mostly clear skies on a crisp quiet late-morning of 28 December 2011, I made my way to Pier 14 and snapped the following photos.

The view is so beautiful; you may not want to leave.

Perhaps you came from the nearby Ferry Building, about which I write here.

I used the Canon EOS450D (XSi) camera with the 18-55mm kit-lens. This post appears originally on Fotoeins Fotopress (fotoeins.com).
