I’m testing some Flickr to WordPress plugins. This one is called “Slickr Flickr“. So far, it’s the best one I’ve tried. The images are from my Flickr “Golden Gate Bridge” set–all the images have been posted here on the blog over the past several years.
Images captured with various Canon cameras during the old commute
Since it’s a hot summer day here in the North Bay I thought I’d post a cool winter image. I took this shot at Fort Point back in January during a stop on one of my thousands of commutes that crossed the Golden Gate Bridge.
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm.

In my last post I mentioned that I was on a 15 day “Reboot” juice fast. Today is day 11 and I’m going strong. At this point I’m actually considering extending it to 20 days–but if I do it’ll be one day at a time once I get beyond 15. One of the “side effects” of the juice fast is that the part of my brain that is the photographer has gotten lazy. Not sure why that is but I’m rolling with it and enjoying the break. Maybe my creative self is in reboot mode too. Whatever it is, it’s all good because I’m feeling GREAT. I have, however, been fiddling with old shots for possible posts. Here’s a shot of the Golden Gate Bridge I took on a very smoggy, hazy day. The best solution for the ugly brownish sky was converting to black and white.

The band played a gig on Angel Island in the San Francisco Bay on Saturday. The venue uses a small boat (rather than the ferry) to shuttle performers to and from the mainland. During the raucous ride back I managed to get a decent shot of the gorgeous day on the bay.

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…

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.)

It’s storming in the Bay Area this week. Today, for kicks, I decided to go all the way to the top turnout on the Headlands and grab some images of the bridge in rainy weather. Well, the rain was there too. I managed to take three quick shots. This was the second. The third showed too many raindrop splotches.
