I was watching the clouds tonight as lately they have been thick and low around sunset which acts as a curtain. Tonight the clouds showed some promise but the color were so dull. I had to crank em up in post processing.

I realize that I never photographed the new section of the Bay Bridge.

Our neighbor asked for an updated headshot for work. In turn I asked for a portrait session at City Hall. Susannah was kind enough to oblige. I used magmod light modifiers on this shoot.

Had to work in Ukiah so rather than sit in the hotel I ventured out to shoot something and to have dinner at the Golden Pig.

Izzy & family were out visiting from AZ and Damon requested a photoshoot of the bridge. It was a gloomy day in San Francisco, I brought a half charged and a dead battery! It was a long hike back up to the car. When we got home I muttered something to Sandy about my condition. She quickly responded, “You’re having dessert?” I said no my calves hurt… We need hearing aids

 

If the skies are overcast I usually go black & white in post processing. Below I tried to use split toning in Lightroom. I’m not completely satisfied with the results.

Saw a heron this morning so I thought I would shoot em while testing my Sony 70-300mm.

Awhile back I got a used G5X and fell in love with the compact size. As I always do, I scour ebay for used equipment and found a deal on a G1X Mark III. The 2 main differences are the G5X has a 1″ sensor and 24 – 10mm f1.8 – 2.8 lens, while the G1X Mark III has a APS C sensor and has a 24 – 72mm f2.5 – 5.6 lens. Both have the much needed hotshoe for strobes.
