I almost came up empty handed on the commute today. The traffic was frenetic so I chose to just go with the flow and get home safely. Unfortunately, it wasn’t flowing so good towards the end so I got off the freeway and took a back road for the last short leg. Coming around a bend I spooked several turkey vultures who were no doubt converging on a carcass. I didn’t see any road kill, but one of the vultures landed on a rock to pose for me. I stopped smack in the middle of the road and took a couple of quick shots from the car. This one was the best of the lot.

It’s still HOT in the Bay Area, but the fog is a rollin’ in… Three different focal length views from the same turnout of the low hanging fog rolling in towards the bay this afternoon.

I skipped a day yesterday. Must have been sleeping on the job.

All summer long there was nothing but fog in San Francisco (except for the odd day or two when the fog mercifully retreated out a short distance off shore). Fall arrives and the Bay Area is HOT! Beautifully warm in the city–blazing hot away from the water. This is what it looked like by the Golden Gate Bridge at about 3:30 this afternoon (nice day for sailing!):
BTW, these are straight out the camera with only the slightest bit of cropping and sharpening. The G11 loves light.

Sunday evening post. I’m not sure why I like this grainy, slightly soft shot of uilleann piper Cillian Vallely. But I do like it. Sometimes a photograph is simply about having captured the mood of the moment.
