SF Ferry Building, Bay Bridge, 49ers Colors, Long Exposure
With the hometown San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl this coming Sunday, many of the tall buildings in the city have some orange and gold themed lights. And many are probably holdovers from when the Giants won the World Series 3 months ago. The Ferry Building, which is now primarily known for specialty foods purveyors and restaurants, is no exception.

While anyone can stand on street level and snap a similar photograph such as this, those photos tend to have the building tower’s lines converge the further up one looks. Plus, you would not see the back side of the “Port of San Francisco” neon facing the bay or much of the Bay Bridge.
The solution? Go across the street to the architecturally impressive Hyatt Regency. The publicly accessible 14th floor faces the tower straight on, or very close to it. There are other hotels in the area that grant equally impressive views of other San Francisco landmarks.
