Well, hello there

It's been awhile, hasn't it?

I’m not sure how it’s been almost two months since I last shared a photograph. Okay, that’s not entirely true, I have a pretty good idea: I’ve been spending an awful lot of time outdoors since mid-fall when San Francisco became its beautifully crisp Indian Summer self. I enjoyed as many gorgeous sunsets as I could before Daylight Savings returned, hopped on my new bicycle to get some wind in my hair, started running and punching and kicking things before the sun made its daily appearance, volunteered with SFJazz and TEDxSF, and found myself dancing onstage for the first time in three years. If there were a petition for a 34-hour day, I’d be the first to sign.

These two shots were taken within minutes of each other. Isn’t it amazing how quickly the light transforms?

And here’s how the sky looked just minutes before the two jumps. (Taken with an iPhone)

Dad jumps in front of the Golden Gate Bridge

28/52

Last weekend, my parents drove up from Southern California with my aunt and uncle who are visiting the U.S. for the first time. We had a jam-packed day of touring some of my favorite sights and savoring some of my favorite tastes that San Francisco, Marin, and the East Bay have to offer. And, now you know from whom I inherited my hops. Go Dad!

Meet Dudley. He dances with the Printz Dance Project, RAWdance, and Janice Garrett and Dancers. We had a fun afternoon of shooting in the Presidio where a new installation called Presidio Habitats recently opened.

Annamarie's 52 Project: Week 21

21/52

I love shooting at night. The colors and lights and long exposures always lend themselves to interesting results. For instance, that arc at the top of this shot is from a helicopter.

What I don’t love: raccoons, especially when they thrash around with their beady eyes in the pitch black darkness in the near brush off to the right. Thankfully, I was not alone when I was out shooting the Bay Bridge. Thankfully, I have a friend who yelled and waved his arms wildly until they scampered away even after the obviously human-acclimated critters first glared at him defiantly. I’m pretty sure I would have fleed without taking all the shots I wanted had I been alone. Thanks, friends!

Here is part 1.
