In the late afternoon, the Transamerica building casts a shadow across its neighboring buildings, like a sundial. If you lived in the city, you could learn to tell time from it. This picture was taken from a rooftop just above Fisherman's Wharf. The church with the beautiful towers is Sts. Peter and Paul, one of North Beach's icons.
