A quick stop before the rain

Yesterday’s rain wasn’t the end of the early rains in the Bay Area. A new, bigger storm started rolling in late this afternoon. I could see that it was already raining to the north where I was headed so I stopped at Bayfront Park to grab some “dry” shots. I run in this park several days a week because it is conveniently located right across the road from where I work. Nice!

A view through the cables

It was a rainy commute home today. The beginning of October is a bit early, but the rain is nice because it’s been very dry for many months. I didn’t stop along the way because a wet freeway invariably makes for bad traffic–and today was no exception. Instead, I went to the well for this image. It was taken during the same commute stop that I got the wispy fog shot of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Alto sax and drums

I’ve been posting less for the past couple of weeks because of a heavy gigging schedule with the band. To emphasize the fact that I’ve been out and about playing music, here’s a shot I took a week ago after our last set of the first day at the Czech Fest in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
