San Francisco I - The way I see it

Just back from a fantastic 5 days in San Francisco (thanks, G!).

Having grown up in Oregon and visited the city on several occasions, I had already done the prison-island-chocolate-bar-sour-dough-cable-car thing. This trip, I spent the entire time biking, walking, and shooting. I was quite conscious of the fact that I was constantly surrounded by hundreds of fat, pink tourists, many with bigger, badder digital cameras that were more often than not pointing in the same direction as mine.

I'd like to think that I was different from them - a "visitor" staying with a friend - and that I was neither fat nor pink - although I did sunburn the back of my hands while biking - and that I knew what I was going to do with every, single one of those 8.4 megapixels.

I'd also like to think that I wasn't just snapping pictures instead of enjoying the scenary; I'd like to think that I spent a lot of time looking at everything and looking for different ways to represent standard (and beautiful) landmarks. If you see it on a postcard, chances are you're not going to take a better picture than that; then don't bother. Find something new.

Let me know what you think - I hate I can't put up the whole 8.4 meg enchilada, but I already know of downloads from my site (I'm honored), plus there's the whole dial-up size issue. Here they are in their tiny, just-imagine-how-they-look-big-and-sure-you-can-steal-these format.

There's more to go up later in the week (series/triptychs).

Had me a big time just shootin' at the pool this weekend. I always wondered what shutter speed was needed to catch a drop of water (Answer: 1/800th of a second - now don't you feel silly running to escape the rain?)

I reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaally like these; they are just so...dunno...liquid. I know that sounds silly, but I love a photo that really conveys what the subject is; and I took plenty of pictures of water that just didn't look...wet. Same pool, three different times of the evening.

What else this weekend? Watercoloring, photo-shooting, super-expensive-couch-(window)-shopping, lunching, brunching. Beers with clowns, "Charlie" with friends, wine with neighbors. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
