STL DPB On The Road: San Francisco - Transamerica Building In Fog

.

Yesterday morning, a lawyer-photographer friend and I took a pass on the conference and went walking with our cameras. Heavy fog was beginning to lift. This is the Transamerica Building, SF's pyramid, backlit through the fog by the morning sun. Why does a shadow of the pinnacle appear to be hanging on the cloud behind the building? If there are any meteorologists of optics experts out there, please help us out.

Lots of San Francisco pix are going up on Flickr here.

Fantastic shot. I know I've mentioned before how I worked for 2 years in St. Louis. Well, I also worked in San Francisco (and Chicago and a few other cities). I loved living for short periods in other cities and learning all about them. In fact, just looking at the street scene in foreground of your photo, I know exactly where you took this photo.

I just checked your FLickr. Only a few more added. May I assume that you caved and actually attended some of those lawyerly meetings today??? Oh Bob, say it isn't so!!!

This is in Chinatown? If so, love the contrast, on every level.
