During the Dot-Com boom San Francisco developers decided to dot the South of Market area with several new and impressive buildings.

And even after the Dot-Com bust they continued to build.   These days I'll guarantee that San Francisco has absolutely NO shortage of office space.

Am I the only one who worries about all that glass going up, down in that area? I hope I'm nowhere near these constructions when the big one decides to hit. They do make very elegant photographic subjects, though.

HI TOMATE FARCIE -- Nope, you aren't the only one who worries about falling glass in an earthquake -- it might be one of those huge engineering mistakes that is going to cost a lot of human lives down the road...   That Orrick Building is the worst -- they use open panels of glass all supported by these strange little metal thingies...   Watch out below...

My place (The Perch), is set on a bluff, but I don't think we have a building over two stories tall in town. I imagine I would suffer from vertigo being shadowed by such behomoths, They sure make for some pleasing photos though. Way cool.

Beautiful series of images. I miss the architecture of the big cities where I live. Might have to come down and visit.
