The very last photos from my recent adventure in the San Francisco Bay Area…

You know, there is a reason they call it the ‘Golden’ Gate bridge…

And it has nothing to do with that gold rush thing. So of course while I was visiting my mom in the Bay Area, I went up into the Berkeley Hills to get some sunset pictures for you. Wrong time … Continue reading

Let’s try that again without the depressing commentary…

Because the day was lovely. And the world is still chugging along. The pelicans were practicing their formation flying. A cormorant was diving for fish. The Golden Gate was very golden. The sunset was nice. San Francisco Bay was majestic. … Continue reading

Fun with the sun… (or); Instead of just showing you the rest of those photos of the sunset over the San Francisco Bay that I took when I went with my mom into the hills above Berkeley during Christmas vacation, what if I intersperse them with copies upon which I worked some digital magic… part 4… special ‘liquefy filter’ edition…

I don’t know why I haven’t spent more time playing with the ‘liquefy’ effect in Photoshop! It has a twirl option!!! I tried to twirl only the sky and water in that one. But the smudgy tool is fun too. … Continue reading

A view of the Golden Gate, across the waters of the San Francisco Bay. And my sweet, smart and kind younger daughter, Mollie. And that is Winston, a very nice dog that Mollie and I met. Because we were at … Continue reading

Hey, I bet nobody else you know got up at four this morning and drove for miles just to walk out onto the Golden Gate Bridge to get you some photos… part 3… in which I run into a horse’s asshole that looks strangely familiar, and come face to face with some lion nuts…

Okay, I am back to posting the photos of my recent San Francisco adventure in chronological order, just for a change. We have seen the sunrise from the middle of the bridge, if you can call it a sunrise, being … Continue reading

Hey, I bet nobody else you know got up at four this morning and drove for miles just to walk out onto the Golden Gate Bridge to get you some photos… part 2… in which I pay tribute to our military, and discuss some of the military history of the Bay Area…

This will be the only part of my series about my most recent adventure in San Francisco that is not, more or less, in chronological order- probably- and I guess, most of it almost is. After I finished walking out … Continue reading
