The Bay Bridge
Bay Bridge at night
Usually thought of as the lesser Bay Area Bridge, the Bay Bridge (which connects Oakland and the East Bay to San Francisco) recently got some LED art installation. You can see more about it here. It's fun to watch and draws a large photography crowd most evenings. I took this at the oddly numbered Pier 14, which for some reason comes before Pier 1 and is the closest pier to the bridge. I think I'll try here again maybe for a panorama shot leading from Treasure Island/Yerba Buena Island (on the left) into San Francisco (cut off).
It should be no surprise that I took some bracket shots of the waterfalls from the other day. I'm not so happy with the HDR shots as I was with the normal shots, which for me is a little strange, but I think the blame goes on me, I rushed the shots. Note to self, and other photographers, don't go to a shoot with someone who's not a photographer, you'll end up feeling rushed even if they're in the car chatting happily on the phone oblivious to your shooting.
Monday, as just about everyone knows, Apple gave a peek at a couple of its updates in the operating systems arena, both mobile and desktop. Most people knew what to expect in the first half, OS X Lion is coming in July. And although I knew what most of the updated stuff was going to be I still found myself wanting to update right then and there. I mean why wouldn't you? It's $30, and I don't have to run down to a store to get it. Actually, I couldn't if I wanted to, but that's another story. But it's the second half of the presentation that was more, interesting, if you're an iOS person.
