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.
