The Transamerica Pyramid is loved and hated pretty intensely. The building was originally constructed in 1969-1972 and is easily the most recognizable and the tallest skyscraper in San Francisco, and drastically changed the skyline when it was finished. You can see it from many places throughout the city – as you can see from the evening shot from afar above…and the sheer scale of the building as taken from the base (shown below). I happen to enjoy the building, but it’s definitely not my favorite of the city. While I’m featuring shots of San Francisco…it would be a crime to leave this one out. What are your thoughts?
I’ve got ambitious plans to head out at sunrise to shoot another icon. Looking forward to the early dawn light.
