Today’s Photo 101 is all about seeing double. I remembered this photo I took the last time I was at The Cannery, a historic landmark located near San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf.

The third floor was deserted when I went up there, giving me a chance to shoot this unusual angle.

There are a few ways to reach
Coit Tower on foot. This staircase – and secluded neighborhood! – is only part of a long, steep path hidden at the back of Levi’s Plaza.
There are multiple ways to climb
Telegraph Hill and reach Coit Tower. This one is hidden towards the north end of Montgomery Street.
There are many, many staircases and shortcuts woven into the
Embarcadero Center. Most of them are hidden off the beaten path, but this one is in plain sight.
