Once a salt marsh, then a military airfield on the northern edge of San Francisco, Crissy Field is now a beautiful mix of restored beaches and wetlands, recreation areas, and private businesses in the old airport hangers. It is hugely popular with strollers, joggers, bikers and dog-walkers… and summer brings an equal mix of residents and tourists.
I spent Wednesday afternoon strolling around, shooting at f/1.7. I’m trying to break my habit of going for large DOF and clarity. It’s a struggle.
If you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area, come on down to the Tenderloin USA launch party tonight and experience an evening of brotographic nirvana at its finest!
Travis and I will have fifteen 20×30″ journal prints on the wall and we’ll be serving refreshments to keep the evening going. There will also be copies of Tenderloin USA Photo Journal for checking out and purchase if you haven’t yet looked at one. As of this morning we’ve raised $2,218 for Larkin Street Youth Services and I have to say that feels great!
It’s all happening tonight, Wednesday, August 10th, at Ever Gold Gallery. Ever Gold is at 441 O’Farrell Street in San Francisco. We’re really stoked about the upcoming evening and looking forward to seeing you there!
Crown Fountain in Chicago’s Millennium Park. There are actually two of these large walls, each fitted with thousands of LEDs that form an animated face that changes periodically. Water cascades down the sides and at various points, the mouth puckers up and squirts water down on these kids. Millennium Park is a spectacular example of private/public funds coming together to form something great that the city can enjoy for free. Over the next week or so, I’ll be dribbling out pics from my recent trip there and to Virginia.
