Came across this image in my files. The iconic daily columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle, Herb Caen (1916-1997). I remember I was walking in Pacific Heights back in 1980 and saw Herb Caen sitting on a stoop with his tennis gear (and a bottle of champagne). He was, as you can imagine, a super nice guy. Below are a bronze bust and one of his typewriters on display at the Chronicle building (shot in 2008).
Saturday morning pre-dawn shoot at Fort Baker in the hopes for a low fog event during the blue hour. Didn't happen; the fog was too high. I think it will happen some time this week with the warm weather. Stay tuned.
Out to the Golden Gate this morning at 5:30 a.m. because conditions looked good for a possible low fog event. Too late for the blue hour so drove up to Hawk Hill. The fog was too high and getting thicker by the minute. The bridge was nowhere to be found. Went back to Vista Point and got these shots just after sunrise.....the statue of the Lone Sailor, the bridge to nowhere and the fog cascading over the headlands into Sausalito. It never gets old; tomorrow is another day.
