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.

Man sized perspective

I’m enjoying an increasingly rare weekend off, so I dipped back into the archive for today’s post. I took this shot back in early June during a commute stop.

Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm.
Black and white conversion: Nik Silver Efex Pro (version 1).

Note: I indicate the version of Nik SEP because version 2 does not run on my machine. Alas–though I’m still very happy with v1.

The only prescription is more bridge

Finally a beautiful day in the Bay Area! Back to the commute photos. Just before the northbound toll plaza there’s a turnoff that heads down to the Crissy Field area. Along the route, I took a short jaunt down to Fort Point. If you’ve never explored the access areas near the Golden Gate Bridge this is a good one to check out.

Petaluma Bridge

And, on this side, there’s waves and surfers who surf them.
