Presidio & Fort Point (Part 1) - San Francisco, CA

This past Sunday (3/30/2014), National Geographic's Your Shot Team hosted a photo walk out at The Warming Hut (Torpedo Wharf) in San Francisco, CA. I am here to show you the photos I shot while on the photo walk. I also headed to Fort Point after the photo walk and shot some photos there too. The photos will be split into several parts. I hope you enjoy them.

Parts: National Geographic Your Shot Photo Walk | Presidio & Fort Point (Part 1) | Fort Point (Part 2)

The photos for today are from Presidio (near Torpedo Wharf) and Fort Point National Historic Site in San Francisco, CA. The sunrise shots you see was shot before the National Geographic Event. The rest of the photos were shot after the end of the event.

Here is a sunrise photo shot at Presidio near Torpedo Wharf. The National Geographic Photowalk started at around 7 AM. Just in time for sunrise.

Now I head inside the museum (which originally was the living quarters) of Fort Point. I thought the hallway looked very nice so I shot a photo.

I walked down the hallway and turned around for another photo.
