Walking in the Hollywood hills late one night, I was biding my time, waiting for a peek down into the city with an unencumbered view.  This one isn’t quite as sweeping as I’d envisioned but I rather like the rolling frame.  You never know what you’ll get if you simply keep walking.

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.

Wandering the neighborhoods of Seattle I happened upon the lovely Gas Works Park on the shore of Lake Union.  Such a beautiful place to while away the time and let the day turn to evening to night.  Directly across the lake lie the buildings of a clustered downtown.  I stood around for some time and let darkness creep in around me.  A peaceful evenings meditation.

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.

Nothing like the south for an old west coast boy.  I love old and the south is so much older.  Walking along River St. with its old buildings and their new shops is an evenings entertainment.  But, in order to get some perspective I crossed the bridge and went over to Hutchinson Island where I could see the frontage landscape.  It’s a charming part of town.

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.

San Francisco.  In most cities, you have to know where to go.  In San Francisco, just start walking around and you’ll bump into just about everything you could imagine: bars, restaurants, music venues, views, sights, famous icons.  You get the picture.  Here, I’d just dropped my wife off at the airport and while wandering through the city to cross the golden gate I decided to hike up and through Bernal Heights Park that I hadn’t done before.  Glad I did.  What a great sight!

I drove up to the end of the road and parked.  I was intending to make it up to the infamous Hollywood Sign, at least most of the way, but it was getting dark and I kept getting distracted by the incredible views of Los Angeles and all the different colors and angles with every step I took.  And then I saw it!  As it was making its way out of the frame, I saw it.  Clearly something alien, and just cruising right over the heart of one of the largest cities in the world!  Do you see it?  There, on the right side of the frame.  Do you believe it?

I love stormy skies when I travel.  They make for much more interesting photography.  Drama, texture, frame-filling.  When the clouds rolled in when visiting my sister in Palm Desert I politely excused myself and drove around town looking for good vantage points.  I followed my nose, aiming for some hills to get some kind of perspective of where I was.  These desert mountains make an incredible frame for this beautiful valley. coachella-valley-view-3-3

When I fly into Seattle, I always head north up through the city on the way to my destination.  Sometimes I’m hurrying through and don’t bother to stop.  But, this time I had some time and sought out this particular angle into the heart of the city for some nighttime photo-taking fun.  I was a bit frustrated that it was cloudy with the ever present northwest mist-drizzle-rain getting me wet, keeping me cold and casting doubt as to whether it was even worth being there.  As I chose to make the effort, I persisted.  Even after a bit of complaining, I’m usually glad I make the effort.
