Fujifilm X100 @ F8, 1/125 sec., ISO 100
This will always file amongst the Top Ten of all the pictures I did. Shot almost from the hip back in august last year with my then permanent accompanist the Fuji X100 when strolling down market street in San Francisco. What a strong tool that camera was… Fujifilm X100 @ F8, 1/125 sec., ISO 100
This is one of the most lovely shops I ever saw, Goorin Hatmakers on North Beach, San Francisco. When I first saw it, I really didn’t know that the company is running over two dozens of branches all over the U.S. headed by three stores in San Francisco alone. Have a look, isn’t it beautiful?„Travelling #4 (Part III): Goorin Bros. Hatmakers, North Beach“ weiterlesen
Of course we had to take a boat trip through the bay. Seeing Alcatraz from a distance was already creepy, in particular with some knowledge about it in the back of mind. Our original idea was to take a guided tour to Alcatraz, but as we learned those had to be booked some weeks in„Travelling #4: San Francisco panorama no. 9“ weiterlesen
And another shot of Golden Gate Bridge from off the bus top. Vertical version this time. (Fujifilm GX617, Ilford Delta 400)
Just a snapshot from the upper deck of a sightseeing bus. Like so often the bridge is hiding itself in heavy fog. (Fujifilm GX617, Ilford Delta 100)
Today’s focus is fixed to San Fran’s architecture, as you probably assumed by reading the headline. Not much more to say. Have a look.
We’re going vertical today. Fire escape staircases on turn-of-the-century buildings are probably the most normal thing in the world if you are a US citizen but they are not if you are a Euro-guy like me. Reason is: we don’t have it. At least not on older buildings. Even though I’ve seen it many times„Travelling #4: San Francisco panorama no. 6“ weiterlesen
Actually I don’t know what the name of this dock or pier on the westside of Aquatic Park is. Just like big parts of Aquatic Park Pier it’s in a quite a derelict condition and because of that public access is not allowed. Shot the frame in the very early morning when the city was„Travelling #4: San Francisco panorama no. 4“ weiterlesen
Some snapshots from Chinatown, which of course we just had to visit. It’s one of the leading tourist attractions of the city and with 80.000 inhabitants it’s the second largest Chinese community in the world. (The largest community can be found in a place called China.) Entering this cultural microcosmos is more than impressive, a„Travelling #4 (Part II): San Francisco Chinatown“ weiterlesen
San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park seen from the end of Aquatic Park Pier in the early morning. The ship on the left is the historical ferryboat „Eureka“. In the misty background you can see the Financial District high-rise buildings.
Finally, here it comes. The first row of snapshots taken during my last trip to San Fran. As before I was truly impressed by the beauty of the city as well as by its multifacedness. At first when booking the trip I wanted to locate directly at Fisherman’s Wharf, the touristic centre of the city„Travelling #4 (Part I): San Francisco first impressions“ weiterlesen
Finally I managed to get the holiday-in-San Francisco-films to the laboratory. 27 by the number. That means 108 frames as there are 4 frames on every roll of film when using a 6×17 panorama kit. Yes, FOUR. Not really a lot compared to the masses of pictures most people shoot with their digital stuff. They’ll„Photo of the day #108“ weiterlesen
