Not just off the ferry

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).

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:

More ZOOM!

Friday’s holiday traffic spurred me to go coastal. I pulled off Hwy 101 at Mill Valley and headed down the windy Hwy 1. There are LOTS of great views on this section of Hwy 1, but not many turnouts where parking is safe for run and gun photography this time of year. But when I got down the hill I did have a few opportunities.

Here’s the first shot I got (but needed more zoom than the G11 is capable of);

Western Marin coast

This was the scene at the eastern edge of the Bolinas Lagoon:

And here’s a scene a little farther north of some seals enjoying the sun in the shallow waters:
