July 2012 Photo Walk

Here are a few images from one of the many photo walks I did through San Francisco's Financial District. As I explore my archives of photos, I have come to realize that I need to start doing walks through a few new areas in the city. Fortunately that shouldn't be a problem as there are many great areas to walk through.

Fun day of photos.

This last Saturday (7/23/2016) I woke up early, met up with a friend from Nelmst Images and headed off to Mt. Davidson Park in San Francisco, California for a sunrise shoot. It was a great shooting location except for the mosquitoes which tried to eat me alive. I came away with three from this first visit to this location.

San Francisco Financial District

Here are a series of photos taken back in August 2012 during a couple of photo walks I did, in an effort to get out of the heat here in the in East Bay. What better way to beat the heat than to grab the camera, head to the city early in the morning, and hide out in the shade of the city's skyscrapers as the weather warms up.

Fort Point National Historical Site

 Fort Point National Historic site, San Francisco California. Taken December 2013 by James Fike Photography.

Tucked away on the south end of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California you will find a California Historical Landmark, Fort Point. In this great city there are a great number of wonderful landmarks and other exciting photographic photo opportunities. Many I haven't even explored myself as yet, still this particular site has me coming back again and again. I have captured many images, good and bad, of this old fort over the years and I still haven't found that image, that moment in time, that says to me that I have captured the soul of this place. Fort point is full of history, arches, shadows, repeating patterns and textures that often leaves me a little overwhelmed. If you are going to be in San Francisco and are planning a visit the Golden Gate Bridge this is one destination that's worth a visit also. You have a great view of the Golden Gate Bridge and if you are looking for some great photos you will find more than a few here. Below are some of my most recent shots; sadly it has been nearly three years since I last visited the fort. I guess it may be time for me to make another visit some time in the near future. Maybe I'll get lucky and get a few clouds too.
