Baths at Point Lobos

I took this from the baths at Point Lobos in San Francisco. There were so many things to take pictures of that day, it was a lot of fun. As I write this I’m on a flight to the west coast again. I’m doing the West coast thing. I’m leaving the West coast of Florida to the West coast of Canada. Then I’ll travel to the West coast of the United States. I think whomever said go west young man, must have had me in mind. Daily Image Growing up in California I was steeped in west coast sensibilities. New …

Seaside Parking Lot

I stayed at Lands End way past sunset taking pictures in the dark. This is a long exposure of someone sitting at the edge of the lot looking over the pacific ocean. You can see the lights of the buoys used to guide the ships into the San Francisco Bay. The person was probably deep in though because he stayed still for the full thirty seconds I had the shutter open.

But it seems the beauty of a city is related to the surrounding geography. If you frame buildings, streets …

Half Moon Bay

Purchase Wall Art Sunset over Half Moon Bay in California. Somehow this photo got buried in my backlog and I just recently found it again. It’s a little surprise and reminder of a day about a year ago.

California Pasture

A farm pasture in San Mateo County along the Pacific Coast Highway. I was on a stop over from New Zealand to Florida and had a day to drive around. I probably need to spend a little more time driving around here because there seems to be something scenic at every turn of the road, and there are a lot of turns. Click on photo to enlarge
