Thursday Doors 9/52 San Francisco

While I was in San Francisco walking around North Beach last week I couldn’t help but take notice of the doors;  quite a few caught my eye.

Nº 551, 553 & 555 – I love these doors, moulding, and color scheme.

Nº 551, 553, 555

Nº 1405- These are so modern or perhaps it’s Art Deco? I think it’s a bit glamorous. 🙂

I really like this shade of yellow. It’s so uplifting; like sunshine.

Nº1405

Nº 4:  The wire work, arch, and color scheme grabbed my attention with this door. I saw it while on my way to lunch, and had to stop to make the image.

Nº 4

Nº 325, & Nº 327- These were by far the cheeriest, and prettiest doors I saw on my walk-about. They were also pretty steep. 🙂

Nº 325 & Nº 327

I have more doors from this walk about that I’ll be sharing at some point.

Palace of Fine Arts- San Francisco

The Palace of Fine Arts San FranciscoI rose at 3AM this morning to head up to San Francisco to make some images. I was hoping for pockets in the fog to see the Moonset, or have thick fog in the bay so I might get the fog/ Golden Gate Bridge image I have in my head, but I struck out on both counts this morning. I couldn’t see the moon anywhere, and the pocket in the fog was in the bay with no fog at all on Golden Gate Bridge.

Trying to make lemonade out of lemons I made this image.  I’ve shot this location several times both at night and in the daylight, but not in the “Blue period” so, at least it’s a bit different from the images I’ve made before.

This is a 2 minute exposure taken with a Nikon D700| AF-S 24-70mm @f8| ISO 200| Matrix Metering| tripod| B+W 3 stop ND filter

I need a nap. I hope you have a wonderful week-end! 🙂

A Nocturnal Adventure

I finally got this shot! I’ve wanted to take a photograph from here for over a year. Last year my friend Dali and I did some recon trips to get the logistics worked out.  It’s a tricky place to get to, and a rare view I believe. We’ve kept this shoot on our “short shot list” but haven’t been able to fit it into our schedules until now. It was well worth the effort, risks, and steep climb to get it. The weather this evening was perfect. It was warm, with a slight breeze, and the fog was thin and stayed outside the Bay while we were here. I don’t know if I’ll ever get back here to photograph this view again or not, but I do hope so.
