Pros and Cons

The VERY unusual late Spring rains have once again put a damper on my commute stop, so for today’s photo I went to the well. I flipped through several dozen images and stopped at this one. The shot was taken back in late March at a recording session. The feet belong to two of my band mates.

First impression

It’s June and it’s still raining in the Bay Area. Not the insubstantial rain we occasionally get during late May/early June some years, but RAIN! The sky did, however, clear this afternoon and the view was spectacular. I took a brief detour up onto the Marin Headlands because I could see while driving across the bridge that it would be lovely–and it was! I took a dozen photos, but this was the first image of the shoot.
