Back Up North

September 25, 2015

As I looked over iPhone shots taken in the last 24 hours to see if there was anything to write about, I decided I could go with a Northern California theme… so here goes:

Nothing says Central Valley like a farm scape, as seen from the air… sort of like a Phil Gross painting that has come to life. This was shot late afternoon yesterday flying into Sac. I couldn’t resist an HDR filter:


This was shot last night while running from one classroom to another at the annual (and our last!) Back to School Night. I have to say, this is one of my favorite school events. I absolutely love tracing the path of Peter’s school day and listening to short, often rushed, presentations by all his teachers. It’s such a kick to sit in each class with the parents of all his classmates–so many of whom we’ve known since elementary school, and in some cases, pre-school.  As we darted across campus between his third and fourth period classes, I looked up to see this dramatic sky. No filter on this one, but I did give it a shot of clarity.


Had breakfast with Elliot this morning and then took a walk around Cesar Chavez park down by the Berkeley Marina. This one has a 70s filter:


This was shot driving across the causeway tonight on our way to an anniversary dinner at Ella’s (good restaurant, by the way). I don’t think I did anything to this one other than crop out the guard rail… just a rice field at about 7:00pm.


Driving across the Tower Bridge. Again, I think the sunset did all the work on this one. No filter, but I may have given it a little saturation boost in iPhoto.


And, finally, approaching the Capitol. Again, sunset at work:
