On the well worn path

Yesterday I wrote, “Maybe it’s time to look beyond the well worn path for inspiration.” Instead of taking my own advice, I looked right at the path. I do NOT recommend the practice of taking photos while driving, but today I did just that–cautiously and carefully, with my iPhone and the Hipstamatic app.

The Waldo Tunnel

Everyday during the commute I pass through the Waldo Tunnel (aka the “Rainbow Tunnel” because of it’s south side paint job) before and after I cross the Golden Gate Bridge. Here’s a long shot of the tunnel from the turnout at the north end of the bridge. (I took a couple of experimental shots of the tunnel with my G11 about this time last year.)
