Here is today’s shot of my favorite bridge after the last northbound crossing of my 13 year work commute. That’s right, NO MORE COMMUTES! The “commute” category is officially closed. Onward…
Lens: Canon EF 24-205mm f/4L at 58mm. 1/160 second at f/11, ISO 100.

After a gig in Berkeley, I happened upon this unfortunate guy and his friends. What to do?? I took a picture. (I’m sure he survived.) The image is straight from the camera at ISO 6400–no processing of the RAW file other than resizing and a tad of sharpening.
Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L at 105mm. 1/15 second at f/4.0, ISO 6400.

It’s hard to be discreet taking photos in a relative small establishment while using a 5D Mark III w/zoom attached. This woman definitely knew I was taking her picture and was kind enough to hold a nice pose.
Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L at 105mm. 1/100 second at f/5.0, ISO 1600.

This guys alcove “home” is just several doors away from very pricey restaurants and chi-chi boutiques in an affluent area of a city in the state with the largest economy in the richest country on the planet.

I was able to get out and about some with my new 5D Mark III over the past couple of days. I did a lot of experimenting because I realized after my first outing that I had a learning curve to tackle. This full body portrait of Maggie, however, was a no-brainer.
And, because today is the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge, here’s a shot I took with the 5DM3 last week from the top of the Marin Headlands. (For more of my Golden Gate Bridge shots type “Golden Gate Bridge” in the search field in the column on the right, or check out my bridge set on Flickr.)
