daily painting | turning basin

My favorite spot near my house — the turning basin in the San Francisco Bay estuary (in Alameda). Huge container ships are turned here by tugs before they moor to offload (and load up new containers of merchandise). The huge shipping cranes are something to see — lined up along the harbor like praying mantises. This scene, if I am lucky enough to happen upon it during a jog/walk, is at the end of the pier. I’m told a large portion of cargo are wines from CA.
