As summer rolls into fall we are rounding the corner on photography season. Photography season is the magical time when the summer fog lifts and the sunrises come a little later in the morning. This is the time of year where every weekend gets filled with photographic adventures - and some just happen to be right in our backyard.
After our last little trip I left my phone charger in Santa Cruz. So, being left with only a car charger mid-week, we came up a little excursion that required a trip in the car. We hit up crookedest street - Lombard. It's world famous - the Australian woman there let me know she saw this street on TV back home.
We were definitely the only Americans there taking in the review of the city. There was an incident of a lost filter holder in the bushes. The blue light quickly turned to black and we hoofed it back to the car. San Francisco hills demand respect.
The following Saturday, before Hansilly pulled into town for a weekend visit, we woke up early and drove up to the Marin Headlands. The photographer was hoping for some sweeping fog and the opportunity to check out a new-to-us spot. But the fog was thin and high so we stuck around Battery Spencer. I brought the Gorillapod and pretended to be a landscape photographer too.
Want to see the work of the real landscape photographer? Well, you're in luck! We'll be in Pacifica at the Pacific Coast Fog Fest this weekend. Bring the whole family - sounds like it'll be a fun weekend.
