San Francisco

In April 2013, I took a week-long photo expedition with the purpose of creating some unique images and learning some new techniques.  I started in San Francisco where I allowed myself two days to attempt to interpret the city from a different perspective which proved difficult for a city so often photographed.  Then I drove […]

Pier 7

Pier 39 gets all of the tourist attention which means I had Pier 7 to myself… well almost. The retired fishermen, teens smoking pot and sleeping homeless men kept me company at midnight as I enjoyed a unique angle on a city that has been photographed to death. San Francisco, Monterey, Carmel, Big Sur, California […]

rolling fog

The fog rolls over San Francisco’s Twin Peaks and creeps into downtown. (Of course, the iconic Sutro Tower rises above the fog.)  During my entire 36 hour shoot of the city by the bay, the fog acted like a child – constantly stepping into my composed shots. Demanding attention. Photobombing within seconds. In the end, […]

redwoods

Muir Woods is home to some of the tallest trees in the world; some are over 1,000 years old.  The coastal Redwood trees were well worth the six mile morning hike!

Painted Ladies

Most of these classic Victorian houses were built in the 19th century with local redwoods and later painted bright colors by the hippies of neighboring Haight-Ashbury… a stark contrast to the modern skyline of Downtown San Francisco.

superheroes vs. pedestrian

The Mission District is a colorful and seedy neighborhood in San Francisco. A nice mix of homeless, punk rockers, Mexican gang members and Guatemalan grandmothers. Faith No More, Beck and Primus came from this neighborhood as well as many influential street artists whose outstanding graffiti and murals polka dot the walls like a large outdoor […]

As Broadway stretches through North Beach, the neon lights of yesterday’s adult clubs light the street.

The Golden Gate

When the Golden Gate was completed in 1937, she was the longest and tallest suspension bridge in the world.  A masterly example of engineering and art deco beauty.  Painted in an orange vermillion to help it stand out in the fog that often shrouds it, a team of 38 painters continuously give it a new […]
