Were I a journalist, I’d prefer not to write for the “society” pages, where the wealthy and beautiful show up week after week. The same sentiment keeps me from making the Golden Gate Bridge the subject of most of my art work and photographs. But sometimes, going through the archives, you just have to say “I surrender.” So today, a picture from Baker Beach on an October morning three years back. San Francisco being what it is, weather-wise, this could have been almost any morning in any month. O! how we suffer from the lack of climate extremes!
After a wintry rain, as we had last night, you certainly can get dramatic cloudscapes in the City by the Bay. You just have to climb a tall enough hill, and point your lens high enough, to eliminate any of those pesky non-Montana skyscrapers.
