I actually did believe for the first five minutes or so of walking down San Francisco’s always cool-looking Embarcadero, the sun would win the battle for the skies; relegating the dark clouds drifting along the horizon to some other quadrant of the Bay Area.
I was wrong in my belief.
Thankfully, I didn’t take the amazing light shining through the clouds for granted- I stopped and snapped a few shots before it vanished.
Is this a photo? Well, no. It’s a ‘painted graphic’ based on the actual photo I took that morning. More circumstantial evidence I MUST experiment!
As with my post. ‘Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow’, you can check out and actually purchase(!) a similar version of this shot on my FAA site. The lighting effect is a bit more pronounced and I’m still in a ‘sun-induced silhouette’, but crouching instead of standing. I also gave that one a bit of a ‘plastic feel’. (experiment… experiment… experiment!)
As a side note, it really was mere minutes later the gorgeous sunlight faded; replaced by brooding cloud cover and eventually fat drops of rain.
Sun- …I’ll let you decide?
