Dogpatch is a neighborhood in the southeast of San Francisco. It includes the nearly defunct Port of San Francisco, and a lot of big, rusty buildings that used to house steel mills, ship building and rigging companies, power plants, etc.

Lots of faded paint, rust, gouged metal. This place saw a lot of action.

So many wonderful textures.

Soon enough, this will all be pricey condos, chic restaurants, fancy boutiques. I’m going to make a point of getting out here and enjoying the feel of mighty industry that used to be.
