End of Summer in California Bay Area

Just like last year, I get to spend a few days in the San Francisco Bay Area in California. A nice respite from the Texas Summer.

First off, a couple shots from the famous Lombard Street, my daughter of course didn't remember the first time she visited this place when she was 2 y.o. Now a teenager, she was soaking the experience.











Then we went to the Yosemite National Park the next day:




Reminds me of an A. Bierstadt painting:



And after some climbing on the slippery stones:



After a brief rain, the clouds are amazing....



(to be continued)...

All of these images are truly stunning. Thank you for posting them. The B&W tones are beautiful! And the dynamic range of the images is great... especially in the Yosemite images. Is this film or digital? And can you say a bit about how you made them? Thanks.

Nice photos! IMO, San Francisco is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. There are just waaaaaaay too many people.

These are all from Sony A7 but using my old Zuiko OM lenses (24mm and 85mm both f/2).

The post-processing is based on my preference that I developed during darkroom days and is done using Nik Silver Efex Pro 2

Yet we were able to find a secluded marina just north of the jam-packed Golden Gate Bridge ... photos tomorrow.
