When I first came to San Francisco years ago, I wasn’t much of a fan of rapid weather changes; warm one minute, foggy and cool the next. It’s a staple of San Francisco and one I think isn’t quite like anywhere else in the world.
Through the years, as the sheer enjoyment of photography took over, I began to see the changing of the weather through new eyes. For instance, the rare truly hot days here are all but gauranteed to get followed up by oftentimes drastically cooler climes. I like change of that nature.
Alomg with quick temperature changes come skies like the one in the above photo. Like the weather, you can’t really plan for these atmospheric theatrics, but it you want to preserve the moment, you’d best be on the ready… often.
Not one to remain satisfied with the original work produced directly from the camera, the experimenter in me often takes over and adds a little something extra. I’ve given a number of pieces on my FAA site the ‘through the glass’ effect. It’s one I enjoy creating and I like the results here. Makes for a more ominous sky but also the building, darkened except for those few yellowed lights, makes me not want to get in the elevator to the top!
