Journey of a body on this earth


Look No Color

Here’s another one from The Presidio in San Francisco I took a few weeks ago.  I was going to go yesterday evening with my camera club but the winds were way too high.  I’ll schedule it another time when it’s not so windy.

I’ve been resting my eyes from a lot of computer and phone work right now.  I’ve had a twitching eye for about five weeks and it’s driving me batty.  I believe it’s dry eyes and overuse from looking at my screen; so I will just post this and close my computer for awhile.  Oh the joys of aging!

In the Pink

Continuing my quest for different angles of the Golden Gate Bridge, here’s a painterly take on the bridge which I obtained by carefully climbing down a small hill where I wasn’t supposed to go.  I’m such a rebel, lol.

I think not only can the angles of the bridge be unique, but processing helps create uniqueness as well.  It’s why we can see so many pictures of this magnificent structure from the same angle and constantly see something new.

Variety is the Spice of Life!

Not that I’m an expert by any means, but I’ve been trying to push myself a little bit with my compositions.  It’s easy for me to get stuck doing the same thing over and over.  For instance, on my way from the Presidio parking lot to take the Golden Gate Bridge, I decided to look at other possible views of the bridge.  It was literally steps to the magnificent vista of the bridge where I noticed this old battery and could see the Golden Gate through the structure, so I thought it might be fun to try and get a shot.  I like seeing new and different compositions with this bridge and I don’t think I’ve ever seen this one before.

The building is one of several gun batteries that were built in the 1890’s for coastal defense and were abandoned after World War II.  There are lots of them scattered around the shoreline of San Francisco.

I hope you enjoy the image!
