Near the homestead is Steamer Landing Park. It’s a nice walking place that’s a mix of industrial, natural and railroad track environments. These shots are from the industrial edge. First, a weird, stubby boat (I shot this over the top of a chain link fence):
Next, an old cable pulling contraption (shot through a very narrow opening in a gate):

Today was the first day with clouds since late May–literally. There’s been LOTS of fog, but no billowy, cumulous beauty to add a little interest to the skies. So I shot scenes with clouds. This is a tidal pond on the east side of Bayfront Park, just across the road from where I work.
The ubiquitous Canadian geese seemed to be enjoying the clouds too–I saw five or six of these gaggles during the 10 minutes I spent in the park grabbing shots.

Today during the commute home I pulled off on Sir Francis Drake Blvd and ran into Sir Francis Drake. Apparently the statue has been there since 1990, but this was the first time I noticed it. Cameras force one to look!
Basically a body turn westward and there’s Mt Tamalpais, and closer, the Larkspur Ferry terminal (if only the ferry went close to my work).

No explanation necessary.

Had a gig today and after our set I took a few shots. Here’s one I particularly liked (I must be on a black and white kick). I cropped the image into “portrait” view because I wanted to emphasize the moody look of the bass and cello players against the hard backlight:
Out of deference to the guitar player who I mercilessly cropped out of the photo above, here’s the shot in full-frame, color view:
