Early mornings in the weekend, you can check out the sail races on the San Francisco Bay. Take a stroll along the Crissy Fields, and you can see the boats sail by.

One of my online friend is raising money for homeless kids in Philadelphia. He would like to hit the goal of $13K, by spending one night outside and sleeping with the homeless kids. Last year he raised $11K for the kids who find themselves on the street. This is an important cause, these are our kids... Having kids myself, I know how important it is to give them shelter and a good future. If you can, please consider donating money to the cause here, I know Wil will appreciate your help!
Everyday I park my car at the foot of Portrero Hill in San Francisco. Every day there are a bunch of tents set up where people who are living on the streets are camping out. These are the more fortunate of the San Francisco homeless people, as they at least have a tent to protect themselves from the fog, wind and the cold. The majority of homeless people in San Francisco are living on the street, maybe with a carton box or a sleeping bag. That is cold... In Philadelphia it's even colder than in San Francisco for a longer period o time!
The America's Cup final races are in full swing. With Team Emirates at a comfortable lead of 6 points, I couldn't resist to take the opportunity to shoot some pictures. These pictures were made today from Crissy Field during race number 11 & at the start of race number 12 of the America's Cup final regatta. Race number 12 was stopped right after the start because of wind speeds over the maximum.
Pier 70 in San Francisco, great plans to revitalize the place, but until then, the pier is in bad shape. Good enough to have an art and shopping fair on a Sunday afternoon.
Pier 70, there are some big plans ahead for this piece of history in San Francisco. Until then, we will enjoy the scrappy place to have Sunday afternoon arts and shopping fairs.. for free ..!
A couple of quick shots from The Golden Gate Bridge at a Friday night. The glass which these pictures were taken with are:
- Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM Ultra-Wide Zoom Lens
- Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens
I took a number of pictures tonight, when the fog was rolling in, the long exposures were getting harder. I'm not a big fan of jacking up the ISO, but it gave me flexibility on the shutter speed, and bring it down from ~2 minutes with a high F-stop, to a 20 sec with a medium F-stop.
