I flew from Boston to San Francisco today. Then when I landed I got in my rental car and headed north up and over the Golden Gate Bridge to the coast. I would have stopped to get a photo but as you can see I was a bit fogged in.
This happened most of the way on my trip up the coast. There were places where I could see the ocean and it looked great but there was no way I could stop and take any shots. The road was a pretty cool one if you were on a motorcycle. I bet my Dad would have loved a chance to tear along these winding roads on a nice clear day.
I stopped at a few places like Muir Beach and then later at Stinson Beach. That is where I got the photo-a-day photo. There was a sign on the entrance to the beach that showed a Great White shark and a warning that there was an attack there in 6 feet of water. So I guess that is what I thought about when I went to take the photo.
On my flight I read a book that my friend Andrea lent to me. It was called Understanding Exposure. It was a very informative photography book. I then tried to make use of the techniques but I think I need to use the book at the same time as I have the camera. The theories and techniques were great and the photos in the book were awesome. Mine however didn’t come out as great as they could have. I’d like to read one that was more focused on a digital camera and especially one that was for the D80.
I had some tasty fajitas tonight at a place called Chevys. On my way there I saw this statue.
It was put up in tribute to Charles Shulz. What I did not realize is that the Charles Shulz Museum is in Santa Rosa. I would certainly have made it a point to get up here earlier to go tour the place. Maybe I will have some time tomorrow after the demo.
Here are my photos from today in a funky mosaic.
