Transamerica Pyramid
and Coit Tower

San Francisco,

Transamerica and Coit at dusk

Two of San Francisco's most famous buildings, the Transamerica Pyramid and Coit Tower, are framed from this vantage point on Pier 39. While the relative sizes of the two buildings in the picture would suggest that they are approximately the same scale, the Transamerica building on the right is actually much larger, and considerably further away than Coit Tower on the left. A jumble of pastel buildings clinging to the hillside gives a sort of Mediterranean feel to the City by the Bay. A relatively fast shutter speed freezes the seagulls in flight.
