Heading south on Hwy 101 there’s an exit just before the north end of the Golden Gate Bridge that goes out to the Marin Headlands. Up the steep hill at the first turnout, this is the view of the northern most section of the bridge and work area below at 4:45 AM (looks kind of sci-fi):
Different shot zoomed all the way in:
I have very little time during the wee hours commute for camera amenities. Basically it’s park, shoot, and get back on the road. These shots were hand held with the camera set at ISO 800 and f/5.6. Noise happens.

Today, I turned off 19th Ave at Cabrillo and took a few quick shots of St. Ignatius. In this typical city street view, I kind of like the chaos of the foreground elements juxtaposed against the church. Here’s the color rendition:
Because of the Trans Am in the foreground I thought it might look interesting in black and white–it certainly looks more SF circa the 1970s:

Met with my daughter after work for chat, chow and a few beers. No time for photos, but I did have my camera on the passenger seat during the ride home. This is an out of focus view of the south entrance to 19th Avenue through my bug splattered windshield at twilight. Hey, it’s art! 😉

San Francisco fog. Nothing to do but work with it this summer. Today, during the commute home, I pulled off at the first road exit at the north end of the bridge and headed down the hill to Fort Baker. These expanded and contracted views were taken near the Coast Guard dock.

Continuing my long weekend off series, here’s a shot I took a couple of weeks ago near the San Rafael/Richmond Bridge. I’m not sure why I like this one, but I do. Maybe it’s the blue against the totally burnt out sky. Or perhaps it’s the weird perspective.
