Thanksgiving Eve

It's been a while... Conditions tonight were crystal clear with little to no wind, and with work slowing down for the long weekend and the buildings on the Embarcadero lit up for the holidays, I decided it was time to visit my muse. Best wishes to all for Thanksgiving - 2021 has been a tough year but there's still much for which to be thankful.

Wow, that's nothing short of spectacular. WAY TO GO! Wish it were mine...but I've 'got' the Mogollon Rim. 😊

Persimmon @ One O'Clock

This one persimmon caught my eye from among the others we had on the kitchen counter. I set it aside and kept it from being baked into the galette my wife was prepping for yesterday's Thanksgiving feast, so that I could photograph it this morning.

I've been meaning to get back to this location to photograph UC Berkeley's Sather Tower (aka the Campanile) with a clear view of the Golden Gate in the background. Twilight started out just OK after the sun dipped below the horizon, with hints of reddish orange appearing to the left and right of the frame. And then I noticed the flaming colors on the clouds slowly moving in from both sides, meeting in the middle and filling in the sky over the bridge. It's good to be out shooting again...

National Redhead Day - November 5

I just came across this wonderful pic you took Joe. So adorably cute! I could be their twin....as at that age I too had fire red hair and a face full of freckles. In those days though I think the only pics of me were in B&W. Besides that, there wasn't a a National Redhead day back then :( .

I am not sure it is the exact same image, but here is one with the sky.

Hi Greg,

I think the sliver of sky in this second image is just the right amount to frame the rest of the image - more would be a distraction with no additional value added, less would feel too constraining. The first image feels incomplete (perhaps un-anchored) without it. Sometimes I find that the horizon close to the edge adds a nice tension to the image. Lovely image, regardless.

Thank you John! Do you ever just look at something too long and lose a vision for the image? I think that has happened to me on this. I had a certain pre-visualization of the shot and the sky and that evening turned out to be nothing like that. I have struggled salvaging something I find pleasing.
