San Jose Morning

Copyright © 2012 Deborah M. Zajac. All Rights Reserved.

I met some friends this morning at 5:30A.M. to try to shoot the Crescent Moon as it rose behind Mt. Hamilton, but the clouds covered the summit obscuring the moon.  We left that location and moved a couple of miles southeast to try to catch the sunrise, but the clouds, still low and thick also blocked the sun. We were treated to some lovely reds, pinks, and golds though, so I turned my lens toward downtown and photographed the beautiful morning sky with the Old Bank of America Tower in view.

For the History buffs:
The Old Bank of America Building was built in 1925. It’s one of the oldest skyscrapers in Silicon Valley. One of the first to be designed as Earthquake proof. It is a designated San Jose Historical Landmark, and in the National Register of Historic Places-Historic District.
Today it is used for office space.
