Journey of a body on this earth


Sea Cliff

While I was at the Presidio taking shots of the Golden Gate Bridge, I used my trusty rule of turning around 360 degrees to see what other photo opportunities there were.  Looking south of the Golden Gate, I saw the sun casting a beautiful light on an exclusive residential area of San Francisco above Baker Beach called Sea Cliff.  These homes have stunning views of the Golden Gate.  Can you imagine waking up and having coffee in the mornings overlooking this beautiful area?   It’s fun to dream.  🙂

Baker Beach, Golden Gate Bridge

Originally I wasn’t going to post this image but when I posted it on my Facebook, people seemed to like it.  So here it is…….drumroll………   I took this the same day as the long exposures.  Funny, I’ve lived in the Bay Area all my life, including San Francisco, and I never tire of the beauty here.

Learning Long Exposures (2 photos)

Yesterday morning I met my good friend Dan Shehan for some long exposure lessons.  We zipped on over (hahahahah there really is no zipping in SF) to Baker Beach for some practice with the water.  In the past, I have really only done two long exposures and those were sort of lucky shots, so I wanted to know exactly how to do them from the zen master himself!  lol

While these aren’t the best, I felt they weren’t bad for my “real” first try.  I’m excited to see what else I can do.  For those interested, I used a 10-stop ND filter.
