T minus one month and counting.
75 years ago, on November 12th 1936, the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge opened for traffic.
This shot was taken last December from Yerba Buena Island. I’m looking forward to shooting it again year with a better lens once the holiday lights appear on the Embarcadero and Transamerica Pyramid.
In the meantime, enjoy!
As many of you know, I am a shameless proponent of the tasteful use of Photoshop. Yes me, the guy who once photoshopped the Bay Bridge OUT of a photo because I thought it cluttered up the view
In fact, from time to time, I teach Photoshop. And I’m happy to announce that in January I’ll be teaching a “Photoshop for Photographers” course at ParaSoma here in San Francisco. Aimed at students who currently have little or no familiarity with Photoshop, my goal is to bring everyone up to full speed in five 3-hour evening sessions… so that by the end of the course all attendees can post-process photos fairly easily and produce impressive results.
After the jump, some before-and-after photos…
About 3 months ago, I came across Pete Rosos’ photostream on Flickr and was instantly hooked. There is something fascinating about the way Pete choses subjects, studies them, and creates photographic collections around a theme. So it is with great pleasure that I introduce Pete on All City… and point you to his excellent website, 2812 Photography.
Additional photos – and Pete’s own words – after the jump:
