This meme image from SFGate tells it all. Taking Independence Day Fireworks is always a risk in SF. Most years it is just fogged out and is often not worth the effort of getting somewhere you can see them and then dealing with the traffic home. But somehow this year Karl the Fog took the night off and gave us some great skies for fireworks. Enjoy!
I haven’t been posting much to my safe work site for a while. Partly because I haven’t been out and about taking much personal pictures. But last week I fractured my collarbone and have been depressed. This evening, I decided to go take a walk by the ocean with the RX100 to see if I could successfully shoot with it while I recover. Looks like the answer is yes. Here is tonight’s sunset.
Happy New Year everyone. Because it seemed that everyone was hella drunk this year, I decided not to trek up all of the way to up Twin Peaks and stayed lower this year. In the end, the Transbay Tower construction added a bit of an interesting effect to the fireworks shots this years.
Also don’t forget to take a look at NYE sunset pictures I took – they are here.
It seems like I now have a New Years Eve ritual. I first go out to Lands End and take sunset pictures, and then head up and take fireworks. Here is the last sunset of 2016, enjoy!
After being social for most of the day yesterday – I decided to sleep and and be anti-social for the day. This generally means I grab the macro lens and go walking around various gardens. I stayed close to home and just went to Golden Gate Park, where the magnolias are starting to come into bloom. Enjoy!
Tensions have been high over the last few days. Instead of letting it stew, I decided to go for a walk around Golden Gate Park and ended up taking pictures in the National AIDS Memorial Grove.
