Toni and I were offered the unique opportunity to go up in the dome at San Francisco City Hall. We were photographing a wedding at city hall and we were up on the 4th floor. We were talking to one of the event staff while he was putting away chairs and he asked us if we wanted to go up into the dome area. We of course said yes and proceeded to climb the spiral staircase that takes you up near the top of City Hall. It was an amazing experience! The view from up there was incredible, like nothing we have ever seen before. Our couple enjoyed it as well. We took just a few photos since we didn’t have much time. This particular day also happened to be one of the hottest days in the history of San Francisco, so it was pretty hot up there, but totally worth the climb.
It just goes to show you how just being friendly to people that you work around can pay dividends. I am sure we will never be able to go up there again, but it was nice to see how it looks. I don’t think there ever any intention of using this upper area for visitors and certainly not weddings!
