Heaven on Earth

Heaven on Earth
Made by mrperry
So my intention was to head down to SF to capture the full moon from the Carnelian Room before it closes. Sometimes plans are meant to be broken. and I headed up the express elevators of the 52 story BofA skyscraper not quite knowing what to expect. It turns out that the bar (we opted to avoid the massively expensive dinner) doesn't offer a very good view to the east. Nevertheless, when I walked in all I could say was omg. We were mesmorized by the epic scene unfolding across the city below us. Never had I seen anything like it. Forget the moon was what I thought to myself. This really doesn't do too well of a job of portraying the motion of what was happening. The fog sliding over Slacker hill and the lower hills of the headlands was simply incredible. Oh and btw I'm back to using my old watermark, this after an incident with my university and them using a pic of mine for an event without my permission. If its in Google it means its in the public domain!...uh no Explored #46 12/2/09 San Francisco, CA

Bank of America Tall

Bank of America Tall
Made by rocketdogphoto
A huge tower named after Giannini, the founder of the Bank of Italy. The small bank would become Bank of America, later merging with Nations Bank. BofA is the largest organized crime syndicate on the planet with tentacles around the globe with a stranglehold on everything. BofA supports the rising facist movement in America that threatens to take over the world. Its not too late to change, reject passive hope and replace it with action. By the way Banksters of America paid $0 in corporate income tax, is that less then you paid in income tax? They received a fat check from Uncle Sam on top of that. How much did Uncle Sam give you recently? Think about it, its time for real change! Reject corporate candidates, real change starts with you, tag you're it!

San Francisco is really a very photogenic city! Whenever I venture into the city with my camera (I live in the suburbs 30min east) I am never at a loss for photos. For a much improved image please: Looking north up Montgomery St. from 555 California St. A fine view the financial district & the north end of the Embarcadero. Of course the tall Pyramid Building is the iconic Transamerica Pyramid originally built as the headquarters for Transamerica a holding company for Bank of America and other A.P. Giannini enterprises. The Coit tower is just out of the frame to the left. the west end of treasure island is visible, as well as Richmond in the distance and the San Rafael bridge

April 4, 2011 San Franciscans march as part of a nationwide efort by the AFL-CIO, many unions and community partners to unite public and private sector workers to support the workers in Wisconsin and regular working families elsewhere. Really? Here is another view: Workers can only begin to fight for their own class interests by rejecting the “lesser evil” sham and developing an independent political movement in opposition to both big business parties and the profit system they defend. www.wsws.org/articles/2011/apr2011/demo-a04.shtml

San Francisco - Financial District: 555 California Street
Made by wallyg
555 California Street, formerly known as the Bank of America Center, was built in 1969 by Wurster, Bernardi & Emmons, Pietro Belluschi, and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill as the headquarters for the Bank of America. It served that function until 1998 when headquarters were moved to Charlotte after a merger with NationsBank. At completion, it was the tallest building west of the Mississippi River, surpassed by the Transamerica Pyramid in 1972. The 52-floor tower incorporates thousands of bay windows thanks to its unique design, meant to improve the rental value.

The squirrel's eye view from underneath. Mike and I both struggled, trying to figure out how to take an interesting shot oft this tree. I actually don't think Xmas trees make for very good subjects. I give these shots overnight. Then they'll probably get tossed. EDIT: Hold the presses. Gary (Spyglass Hill) just discovered something really amazing. See the notes and comments.

One of SF's most magnificent skyscrapers, viewed from California Street. 555 California Street. Formerly the BofA Building or Bank of America Plaza. I guess BofA is no longer the anchor tenant, now that that company's headquarters are in Charlotte. However, I thought they retained some presence in the building. I could be wrong.

Walking to the Netters' Dinner, Adam stopped everyone, pointed up to the flag and said, That would make a good picture. I don't know if he was correct but I snapped a few. This is the one I liked best. [ 2009 Macworld San Francisco ]

There's a bar at the top of the Bank of America building. It's an ugly motherfucking place, but the view is incredible. It's called the Carnelian Room.

Check out, in particular, the rough scale model of the Empire State Building on the roof. The resemblence is—apparently—entirely planned.
