Tonight I hit the Bay Bridge again to get a different perspective. Unfortunately I got distracted by that Racoony that kept sneaking up behind me.

I was beat from all the commuting & shooting the last 2 days, but Sandy wanted to go watch the Blue Angels take off from Oakland. This is a different perspective than I usual get.

As usual the opportunity to photograph the Blue Angels is such a draw for me. This year I signed up for a workshop on Saturday that enabled me to get rooftop access at a great location to the Fleet Week festivities. Without a big DSLR to weigh me down, I brought along my A6500 with a 70-300mm lens. I tested this setup on Friday and it worked out fine so Saturday was a go. Here is a combination of Friday & Saturday. I apologize after awhile all these start to look the same.

On our way to dinner, I had to run out to the beach when I saw the sunset. I got tons of sand in my shoes, which irritated my feet all throughout the meal.

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.
