San Francisco’s famous sea lions at Pier 39
Sunset over Manhattan Beach, California
One of life’s simplest pleasures, watching the sun set. Beautiful anywhere in the world. The first photo was taken on our first day in San Francisco at the famous Pier 39.
The second was taken while racing the clock at Manhattan Beach south of Los Angeles.
I had visited in January and spent a day on a sound stage nowhere near the beach so getting to see the sun set in April was a bonus.
Perth skies, spring, the hint of humidity that says summer is on the way.
I can see a rainbow
While backing up an SD card from last year I stumbled across this photo taken in July, the middle of winter in Australia.
It was actually a double rainbow but this is the only one I had of the whole rainbow.
I love rainbows. Not unicorns, though 🙂
Sunset, Perth, Summer 2010
I also came across this photo taken as the sun set over the Indian Ocean on West Coast Drive, around North Beach. I’ve often tried to capture the sun setting on my iPhone while a passenger, usually with little success.
This time I actually pulled over and took the time to take some photos on my camera and enjoy the view.
It was a moment for quiet contemplation; my family had left for Tasmania for a week, my dog had just been dropped at my sister’s and I was , having only just recovered from bronchitis bordering on pneumonia, getting ready to head to Sydney to see Oprah.
My photographic skills are average, my eye for a photo and composition is ok and my camera is probably below average but I never leave home without it.
