San Francisco

Feb 182017
 

I was quite tired after flying into Oakland from Texas.  I wanted to get home and be done with the travel schedule.  But, here I was with having to make another quick decision.  A perfect storm was hovering over the City.  The clouds were breaking a bit and the sun was showering some light their way.  So, I quickly decided to get on the Bay bridge and over to Treasure Island where I’d have good unfettered access to the scene.  I was just hoping the clouds would stay parted and there would be enough sunlight shining through to make a difference in the image.  Storms are always so exciting.  It was certainly worth the trip.

Sometimes I feel it’s unfair I get to work at a place that offers the views I get to look at.  The sail boats, the sea birds and the sweeping skyscapes that sometimes occur, even in sunny California.  To have it all happen over the recognizable city of San Francisco… just frosting on the cake.

Who says there’s nothing to do in the winter.  There are plenty of ducks on the pond.  And I’ll bet they’ll get out of the water to greet you if you bring plenty of food for a picnic.

Cable cars, one of the icons of the iconic city of San Francisco.  Maybe you know of another city with this type of transportation.  I don’t.  Cable cars are just one of the signature sights to see in this great city.  You don’t even have to go out of your way to notice them when you’re tooling around the downtown area and city at large.  Need to get from downtown to the wharfs?  Take the cable car.  It’s fun.  It’s slow.  You see the city.  And here, from the top of Russian Hill, you can even see Alcatraz.

Instead of heading straight home from work, I decided to take a 10 minute side trip to the north side of the bridge.  I enjoy being around and shooting different angles of the golden gate and seeing what kind of weather pattern presents itself.  I parked my car and wandered around looking for angles when I spied a path I’d overlooked on previous visits.  Perfect.  I didn’t even have to go too far to find something I hadn’t seen before.

It was black Friday, the infamous shopping day, and I was antsy.  I decided to get myself out of bed in the middle of the night and see if I could catch the city coming awake before dawn and all the shoppers could make their mark.  So, I headed for Treasure Island, the great little piece of land in the middle of the Bay bridge between Oakland and San Francisco.  It’s fairly close and presents perfectly unencumbered views of this great city.  It was cold and raw down on the rocks and water, the weather didn’t cooperate like I’d hoped, but it sure beat shuffling shoulder to shoulder with over amped shoppers.

It’s fun walking around a big city during the Christmas holidays.  The bustling people, the decorations, the festivities.  If you actually have to get something done it may be a different story, but just to be there and be a part of everything, basking in the warmth of the season, is what it’s all about.

San Francisco is known for its fog and this morning was no different.  I had been out shooting some night shots and wasn’t ready to head home so I just kept driving around, looking for more; more scenes, more views, more angles.  Sometimes I just can’t stop myself and this was one of those days.  As the daylight increased, so did the fog and I was getting frustrated.  After all, I was making an effort to be out, why couldn’t I see?  Patience, just a little patience.  And then, the fog started lifting.

I’ve been here a number of times and enjoy it each time I go.  Down by the wharf, it’s an easy place to get to, if you can find the parking.  If you like having a drink, it’s the place known for inventing the Irish Coffee.  A little coffee, some sugar and of course the Irish whiskey.  Nice in the often cool San Francisco climate.  But really, almost any place in San Francisco is worth checking out, at least once.
