San Francisco Travels

Click to Expand
Leaving NYC was a challenge with the snow coming down hard in the morning.  Luckily our flight took off after two de-icing stops.  
Dropping down into San Fran on a foggy afternoon I headed out to Hyde Street to see the trolley work the huge hill.  While there for a bit the fog lifted off Alcatraz and the sun hit the city illuminating all the wonderful colors of the landscape.

I've always loved driving around San Fran.  The area is so different from NYC and the streets are unique in all the ways we can see.  Hills and trolleys are special landmarks of the area.

For this trip I brought three cameras.  My main is the Fujifilm X-E2 and back up is the X-PRO1.  Then for many grab shots I used the XQ1.  My lens selection was quite simple.  The XF14mm, XF23mm and XF55-200.  This worked out great and is a light group.

In camera filter for making a more dynamic scene.

After a couple hours in the city we headed out to cross the Golden Gate to see the city from the Marin Headlands.  On the way down to the bridge it was great to see some guys surfing at the base.
Once clearing the bridge the moon was rising and the sun was setting and leaving a warm glow over the city.

 It's always interesting to see what types of cameras people are using and how they use them.  As expected there is always someone lifting an ipad up to catch a moment.
 The sun dropped and the moon rose over the bay and here is the glow of the moon off the water from Sausalito.  The Inn Above Tide was a wonderful place to stay and offers water view rooms.
 Next stop after San Fran is Muir Woods.  A chance to capture some lush greenery and see the big trees.
