Repeating Arches of Fort Point

San Francisco, California

B&W seems to suit the repeating arches in the long passageways of Fort Point, located just south of the Golden Gate bridge. The wind
blows through this old fort like a banche. Can't imagine how soldiers ever kept warm enough in winter, while serving at this fort.

Nice perspective and works so well in B&W.

Superb use of b/w for this shot. As you know, Fort Point is an old, abandoned Coastal Artillery installation designed to guard the entrance to San Francisco Bay. It's unique and should be a mandatory stop for anyone with a camera. About 35 yrs ago, I actually drove a car inside one of these tunnels (at least for a little ways). I don't think you can do that anymore.

Marvelous shot, Sandi! A beautiful B&W composition!

Great detail and good choice to shoot monochrome. It might be the perspective but it feels like it might be a tad tilted? It's hard to say with those arches. But that's a nit, very very nice shot...would make a nice print.

Very nice capture. I like how you have this off-center yet still capture the repeating aspect. V.

Fantastic repeating shot; the B&W really brings out the tones to highlight that point.

Great composition - I like the receding arches, they really draw the eyes through the photo. I love the B&W processing, too. V
