Shots from my daily commute.

Downtown on a Monday afternoon

Instead of heading directly home after getting off the freeway at the end of my commute, I headed into town. The local parking garage seemed like a good place to grab a few quick shots so I drove up to the top level, parked and circumnavigated the lot. This view is looking east down Western Avenue towards the Petaluma River.

San Francisco under the weather

I made a quick stop at Fort Point during my commute home today and grabbed a few rainy day shots. I didn’t have an umbrella to keep myself and the camera dry so I improvised with a sweat shirt I had in the car. I got a little wet, but the camera stayed mostly dry. This was the view towards the city.

Calm before a storm

After nearly seven weeks of unseasonably warm and dry weather, rain is finally coming to Northern California. During my brief stop by edge of the San Francisco Bay at Horseshoe Cove late this afternoon, except for the tell-tale stratus clouds, that a storm is brewing wasn’t all that obvious.
