Solitary Splendor

Magic hour in San Francisco. I'm shooting from a 12th floor SOMA penthouse, looking down at the semi-industrial part of town. Amidst the graffiti d warehouses, storage units & anonymous high-rise buildings St. Joseph's Cathedral glows like a beacon. But at ground level, St. Joseph's is empty and abandoned. Surrounded by a chain-link fence with ferocious No Trespassing warnings. Broken windows. The exact opposite of the original glory you see from the sky.
