San Francisco Pt 4

Just moved house so got behind with finishing these blogs posts off lol. The evening sun have some gorgeous lighting, combined with the soft haze from the ocean climate was a real treat given the previous days gloom.

I don’t do much of anything street photography wise, but occasionally I’ll see a scene and appreciate the composition, which is what happened with this shot above. Taken near one of the wharves this unsuspecting smoker got caught on the sensor.

I like the symmetry of the bridge and the harbour wall in the photo above, but also the sunbathing birds all together. The haze and pastel colours of the bridge were amazing. They were quite a ways away so I think I was at the longer end of the 230mm (345mm) Fujifilm lens.

The evening stayed clear and we managed to get a place on the evening tour bus which goes across Bay Bridge (left) over to something called Treasue Island (which was sinking apparently). An amazing view, but we didn’t have much time so I found a rock and tried to balance my camera on it and take a slightly longer exposure. Think this was the best of the lot above.

This final image was taken from the moving tour bus again, just on Bay Bridge on the return trip. It’s an amazing city skyline to see at night if you can. I’d also recommend the Big Bus Tours and try and get the night tour, but get there very early to get a space. That’s it for my Canada trip blogs, so may be posting some other blogs entries for a while :-)
