Wishing everybody a wonderful holiday in whichever way you choose to celebrate. Make good use of time with family and friends.
Recently, I took a friend to Point Lobos State Park, just South of Carmel, CA. There is photography history there as we first stopped at Weston Beach, named after the Ed Weston's Family. In the first photograph taken by Dwight Morita, it may look like I just got drenched, but I didn't. It does show what photographers do to find the photograph. The second image is what I saw from the vantage point.
Ok, so I did mention Fall colors and gave you a black and white photograph. So below are a couple with Fall colors. This is as of November 6, 2016. The leaves may have fallen by now, but there were plenty of trees that hadn't turned at that time.
Just this past weekend, I was able to go to Yosemite National Park in the valley. The water is running and Fall colors are appearing. The animals are present. Many deer, a bear with a cub and a bobcat all were visible in the daylight hours.
Early this year, I just decided to try to take on self imposed projects. The first of these is the walk across the Golden Gate Bridge. Each time I crossed the bridge early in the morning, I looked for visual elements that most people would not stop to look at. Another thing I intentionally tried was to make elements of the bridge appear as it were something else. Like the bridge lights look much like people walking in a line. So the idea was to just go an photograph.
