With all the smoke in the air from the fires the sunsets are very colorful.

I see this small scale ship every time I drive on I80W. I thought with all the smoke in the air the sunset should be good.

There was a thunderstorm so I ran outside to the backyard. I setup my lightning trigger & thought I would catch some great stuff… but the trigger was to slow! So I reverted to my old ways and set the camera for a 25 sec exposure and keep my thumb on the shutter release.

Since Sandy is away I have to keep busy. So I decided to go to Muir Beach to catch the sunset. It was extremely gloomy when I arrived. I shot a few then left… to early, I saw the sun peak out of the clouds as bright fire ball in my rearview mirror as I was half an hr away.

Arlene asked if I was interested in seeing the Blue Angels. I already had plans to photograph them but it was a chance to hangout with her.

I shot approx 600 photos and most of them had motion blur. I’m getting old and losing my touch.

On vacay this week. The weather was gloomy so rather than post flat color photos, everything gets converted to B&W. I even added some noise on a couple.

It always irritated me having to work on Veteran’s Day, so this year I took the day off. I started off at Golden Gate Cemetery.

This evening I visited the Palace of Fine Arts. I saw several photoshoots while I was there and was quite shocked to see most of the photographers were not using strobes.

Had to work in the area so I took my camera. Traffic was horrible and I didn’t stay to see the Blue Angels.

I checked out the open house at the Crucible. I couldn’t stay long, I was hoping for a fire show.

Been wanting to come here for quite awhile, so after my Canon Macro class (right across the street) we had a lovely dinner.

This year’s reunion was here in San Francisco. Friday night was the dinner party at the Hilton by SFO.

The family was so big I had to shoot a 2 photo pano. I had forgotten to bring an omnidirectional light modifier and only had a softbox. No stress there.
