Travel theme: Circles

“Like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel… dah, dah, dah — dee, dee, dee, and whatever else you want to put in there…”

This week’s Travel theme is circles and I have a photo of a large metal ring that was used to guide a cable when the 12-inch barrel of an artillery piece was put in place. There are more rings like this in Battery Lancaster, built in 1900, on what is now the East side of the Golden Gate Bridge Plaza. It is worth a look if you are ever in the area. Enjoy.

      Thanks, Stephen. I had many a fine lunch in that little place on Hotaling Alley back in the ’80s and ’90s when I worked in the TA Pyramid. Thanks for the memories!

    Great color on that ring – love big stuff – always makes me think about the guys who toiled over its creation, no easy feat!

      No easy feat indeed. Those guys were a tough bunch and the more I look at what is around the Plaza, the more I am in awe of them.

    Somewhere I have a very similar shot from my trip to SF last year. Love the rust!

    That rings a bell…well, maybe a cable. Intriguing shot!

      Thanks, Al. I think that it is the name, Pavlov, that rings a bell.
