Another shot of the Point Sur Point light-station. This was taken from about a mile away along the highway. Before the highway was build in the 1930s, the lighthouse keeper lived a remote life. To me this would make a great setting for a movie, the island and the pacific ocean below are pretty dramatic.
If I've said it once I've said it a hundred times, I love old piers. No, don't put me down as undecided, old piers are awesome. If for no other reason than they provide a leading line into the infinity of the sea. They point outward and beyond, they are metaphors for the journey of life. How's that for heavy thoughts along with my images? I know, as long as it's not heavy breathing then it's okay. As a land lubber a pier for me points outward to sea. However if you are at sea, it's a bridge back to shore. There are so many implications that it just blows my mind. Okay, the men in white coats just showed up, I need to take my meds now. But really, don't you think old piers are great?
While in San Francisco I just had to "do the bridges". By that I mean, drive over and take pictures, ...just like everybody else. I went through the motions but I didn’t have my heart into it. I mean, it's only been done one-million-and-four-hundred-and-sixty-two-thousand-and-seven-hundred-and-ninety-two times (excluding Andriod devices). Not like it's popular or anything. Even when I showed up at 5AM on a MONDAY MORNING there were three other photographers there. I mean, don't these people have anything better to do than get up early on a MONDAY morning and take yet another picture of the bridge? Good grief, some people.
Anyway, I stuck around looking for a unique angle that hadn't been done before, how hard could that be? Those other pesky photographers finally left and I was about also when I looked back and noticed that the Blood moon had popped up over the bridge. How lucky is that? I quickly took my shot and I think I may be the only person in the world to have a shot of the Blood Moon over the Golden Gate.
I’m currently in negotiations with Hogwarts to have this hung in the grand hall, but I wanted you all to be the first to see it.
