I cheat, we are not in San Francisco, but in Berkeley. The Claremont Hotel is an imposing block of still existing past. Difficult to photograph this huge building in the heights of Berkeley, dominating the whole Bay of San Francisco. Have a drink on the terrasse in the evening and you will see the sun set almost behind the Golden Gate Bridge… In fact, this place reminds me of the Kubrick movie Shining, because the hotel is in the same style. I would like to test the roof top room with a large window. But my problem was how to compose something out of this white massive construction. At least I have the shadow of a palm tree at the intersection of the two diagonals and a kind of alignment along those lines. The dark spots of tree shadows seem like dots and may be the only elements giving a rhythm in the surface of the picture. Well. It was a challenge and I did not really succeed in making a balanced photograph, but the ambiance is here and would not like to meet the twin sisters in the endless corridors of this place.
