San Francisco: Ocean Beach, alone & deep in thought
In March 2012, I visited Ocean Beach in San Francisco, Caifornia. What’s left of the Sutro Baths invite people to walk in, through, and around the ruins. A benefit to visiting, even on a very windy day, is the proximity to the water, the Pacific Ocean.
Standing a few metres away from the water, I saw a woman standing alone in front of the surf. Although it was windy and some surf was reaching the ruins, the woman stood still for minutes, looking out into the ocean.
Briefly, I feared she was contemplating a jump into the ocean. But my fears were unfounded, as she eventually walked away and back up the slope towards the parking lot.
Whatever she was thinking, I hope she found what she was looking.
I made this photo at Ocean Beach in San Francisco on 18 March 2012. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com.

Sweet, Henry … very sweet!!!
Thanks, Stephen. That was a cold and blustery day, but those conditions are rarely surprising at Ocean Beach!
Great photo and spot Henry! It’s usually the first place I go on a trip to SF. Great memories being there as a kid and want a taste of the ocean and beach as soon as possible. Stunning views don’t hurt either.
Hi and thanks, Aaron! Believe it or not, despite many visits to the Bay Area, I’d only visited Ocean Beach a couple of times. I was fortunate to have had a decent afternoon with great blustery conditions, some brilliant photo opportunities, and in this case, spotting this scene at the right time. The next time I’m in the area, I’ll have to go back. Thanks again for reading!
