The Golden Bay Bridge in San Francisco

The Golden Bay Bridge in San Francisco The Bay Bridge in San Francisco all lit up at night. The lighting on the bridge casts a golden glow over the water that is beautiful to watch and photograph. More on Wikipedia. Niall Kennedy walked with myself and Bryan Veloso around the Ferry Building on the night […]

Gone fishing

Gone fishing Two fishermen enjoy the sun while a huge container ship, the Maersk Derince, passes by in the background. You can see they’re very busy. Even the gull that has landed close by is watching intently. It’s another hectic day in San Francisco. Technique: I wasn’t sure what to make of this photo. I […]

Looking down from on high

Looking down from on high Looking down on a street in San Francisco. You wouldn’t want to be afraid of heights walking around on top of a building! We all want to see what the neighbours are up to and living in a high building is the perfect opportunity of peeping-toms everywhere. You can see […]

Seating and the Bay Bridge

Seating and the Bay Bridge Public seating near the Bay Bridge in San Francisco. I shot this on the first evening after getting to the city. Matt, Andy and I went for a walk down the street and I got my first sight of downtown San Francisco. Technique: I cropped the photo to a 1×1 […]

Have bike, will travel

Have bike, will travel As you can imagine, I was quite tired by the time I got to San Francisco! Picture above was taken just down from my Bird flying by photo. I know there are lots of awkward lines in this shot but the line of the Golden Gate Bridge is just about horizontal. […]

Bird flying by

Bird flying by A gull flies off after an inconsiderate photographer runs after it to shoot it. Beats having the kids do the running eh? They might fall! This was taken in San Francisco, and that’s The Golden Gate Bridge in the background. I went through my shots from my August trip a few days […]

Bay Bridge San Francisco

Bay Bridge San Francisco This is the Bay Bridge in San Francisco. It’s the view from Matt’s apartment building. He brought Andy and myself up there to enjoy the view, and probably in my case to keep me awake after the long flight!

Waiting for Passengers

Waiting for Passengers People wait expectantly in San Francisco International Airport for the first sight of someone they know to appear in the crowd off a plane. Toni, Andy and I were there to meet Podz off his plane. I had flown in earlier in the day and was almost asleep on my feet but […]

The Brown Line to Kimball

The Brown Line to Kimball Aboard one of the trains of the Chicago L, the elevated and underground train network in Chicago. I think this was taken near the south end of the Loop, possibly around the corner from the library. The last time I was in Chicago I took the L for nostalgic reasons […]

Wrigley Building Sky Bridge

Wrigley Building Sky Bridge This is the sky bridge between the two sections of the Wrigley Building in Chicago. We were walking through when I looked up and immediately noticed the leading lines of the buildings and the walkway. Way back in 2003 I photographed the Wrigley Building a few times and I’m pretty sure […]

The Thieving Duck

A duck robs a poor innocent woman as she’s distracted by the cute ducklings. Moments later they all rush off with their ill-gotten gains! What you don’t see is the camera crew, make-up and lighting people and a small crowd watching from behind them. This was for some advert and of course the woman in […]

Sears Tower and Flagpole

Sears Tower and Flagpole Sears Tower in Chicago and it’s reflection in a flagpole on the grounds of the building. I love the light and shadows in this image and the mirror image of the reflection.

Children, wait in line

Children, wait in line Children wait for their teachers in down town Chicago last year. They were standing on the pavement (oh ok, side walk) near the Chicago Board of Trade. I presume on a school outing, hope they enjoyed themselves! I’ve been holding on to this photo for months now and since I don’t […]

Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet

Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet A Boeing 747 is readied for another flight, with hand luggage on board. This is the plane that flew me to London Heathrow from San Francisco. I shot the photo through the plate glass of the departures lounge. It was converted to b/w and dodged/burned afterwards. The panoramic format works really […]
