Photography is my therapy. It is the only thing that can completely consume me and ward off any wayward thoughts. It usually makes me happy, unless I screw something up like accidentally flinging my wireless remote over a barbed wire fence, or inadvertently over-tightening a tripod knob so that I can’t unscrew it for the life of me. Or when I learn I have to send my camera in for service because Nikon likes to annoy me by selling me faulty cameras. But really, other than that, photography is pretty fun. 😉
Title: Blue Hour Bridge
El Niño brought us much needed rain this winter. The Sacramento River swelled up and even flooded in some parts. Here is a shot of the Tower Bridge. Check out how high the water level is (was).
Title: El Dorado Twilight
Sometimes you just have to pull over on the side of the highway to take a few shots.
Title: Sutro Baths
This image took some patience. Too many people were there on a Friday night, but I knew I would outlast them. I set up my tripod, plopped down on the ground, and willed everyone away. As you can see, my Jedi mind tricks worked beautifully. Not a soul in sight.
Title: Sausalito Pier Pilings
Finally, I have my first pier shot. I have been wanting to take photos of piers for quite some time now. Soon, I shall have a collection. It will be named Patty’s Piers. Or perhaps not. I haven’t decided yet. 😉
Title: Pier with a View
Look, guys, you can see the San Francisco skyline! This shot was taken after I messed up my tripod and was irritated at the world. I’ll be heading back to this location at some point in the future when I have pliers on hand (just in case). Hopefully there will be a better sunset then as well.
