I'd hoped to get myself up to Sonoma for a day of photography thiw week, but that wasn't in the cards. I did get a couple of hours up in San Francisco and here are the best shots from my efforts. I spent most of my time photographing the Golden Gate Bridge and getting to know my new camera. I took shots from the viewing area north of the bridge, as well as from multiple vanatage points up in the Marin Headlands (while trying not to be blown off the cliffs!). But the shot from Baker Beach on near the San Francisco anchoring point was, I think, the best of the day.
I also headed over to Chinatown and grabbed a few pictures. The objects in the jars priced at $480/lb. are dried abalone, a delicacy but easily acquired at any of more than two dozen stores in Chinatown along with shark's fin, many mushrooms and fungus you've never seen before (ever seen a mushroom four feet in diameter?!). The dapper guy in the suit and pipe is someone I've seen many times around Chinatown in the last 20 years and never thought to grab his photograph. Glad I did today.
