Fort Point National Historic Park is directly beneath the south side of the Golden Gate Bridge. The fort once protected the entrance to the bay with a military force of 24 cannons. It's odd to think of military force in terms of archaic cannons, but at one time they were state of the art.

I walked through the building one Sunday morning with a friend of mine. The light was good, and the shadows were interesting. The building was made of tons of brick and mortor, and i wondered how well it could stand here in the land of earth quakes.

The buidling holds one of the best hallways one can find. I wish i had come here with five other friends to lead a trail of the "dead." We made the best of it however and with a little help from a well placed shelf were able to get the shot we've always wanted here. In truth, I didn't know this shot existed, until i saw it.

I love spontaneous creativity.

I'm now headed south to Mexico.
