The Cranes of August

San Francisco's traditional gray summer has been framed this year by huge construction cranes.

On Market Street, from 9th Street to the Castro...

...the cranes have been ubiquitous.

The most entertaining spectacle has been the disassembling of 100 Van Ness from office skyscraper to skeletal steel frame in anticipation of 400 new apartments in the same space. Every day the structure looks more like a set for Hollywood's latest dystopian disaster movie.
