San Francisco

Twi-lights of San Francisco

There’s a great spot up on the hill above the Golden Gate Bridge at Hendrick Point,to photograph the city lights of San Francisco, looking east. There was a photography class of maybe 30 photographers all lined up, trying to get the shot. Fortunately for us, it was a fogless night, a rare moment here during our stay. I couldn’t imagine charging people money, only to have the bridge completely fogged in. I guess you just take your chances.

At Waters Edge, Oakland Bay Bridge, San Francisco

A view of Oakland Bay Bridge from Embarcadero in downtown San Francisco. A foggy week was replaced with blue skies and warm temperature. The locals came out in groves as did tourist, as did photographers.

Golden Gate Bridge from Bakers Beach, San Francisco

Daily Photo:

I was waiting patiently for the two guys sitting on the rocks to move on, but then I took another look and liked how they were seemingly fixated on the bridge. Beautiful summer day, weather was great, and tourist were crawling around the rocks trying to get a better view. Bakers Beach is in my opinion, is one of the better viewpoints for the Golden Gate Bridge.

Chocolate Lovers Paradise, San Francisco

Daily Photo:

For all the chocolate lovers, I couldn’t help but take a shot of one of the many confectionery fudge shops around the fish market in downtown San Francisco. Chocolate could surely ruin dinner and that wasn’t quite what we had in mind.

Palace of Fine Arts, San Francisco

Daily Photo:

San Francisco can be overwhelming to drive in, if you’re not familiar with the town. We were looking for the “Crooked Street”, aka, Lombard Street when our GPS just happened to find this place. If I was actually looking for the “Palace of Fine Arts”, I’m sure the GPS would have taken us somewhere else. It wasn’t doing well this night, finding our way in downtown San Francisco. Sometimes, just pulling out the map, like in the olden days, works just fine. Despite it all, what a pleasant surprise to find this magical place, all lit up and waiting for me to take an array of HDR photos.

Italian District in San Francisco, California

Daily Photo:

Happy Labor Day weekend and hope all is well with you. We took our Labor Day weekend early last week to avoid the crowds and craziness. That’s usually how we like to travel.

This little Italian food cart had a charm all it’s own, tucked along a major street of competing Italian restaurants that seemed to be everywhere. I spent 2 years in Italy, so as they say in Italian; “Amo il cibo Italiano”!

Full Moon Over The Golden Gate Bridge

Daily Photo:

San Francisco is usually very foggy in August, but we lucked out with a couple of clear days. I spent a few hours at sunset on the cliffs overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge. Being from Arizona, I didn’t plan on it being so flippin’ cold in the evening. I ended back at the car with freezing cold hands and the heat on to thaw out. I guess I shouldn’t complain to much.¬† Got to experience an incredibly beautiful moonlit night at one the most photographed bridges in all the world.

Muir Beach Overlook, California

Daily Photo:

On a photo tour of San Francisco this past week, we managed to luck out with a few days of clear blue weather. We took a trip up through Muir Woods and along the coast and stumbled upon Muir Beach Overlook. My wife was standing at the overlook admiring the incredible view, so I thought I would photograph the incredible view..my wife.. that is!! Actually I ask her to pose for thissilhouette  shot. It was amazing that we caught the sun reflecting directing toward the steps and that made the model (my wife) a truly amazing shot!
