While I have lived the majority of my life in the San Francisco Bay Area I never walked the bridge until just recently. I went with a group of friends on the day after Thanksgiving. Generally everyone knows that when you head to SF or the bridge area you take a coat as it will be windy and possibly cold. Not that day! We all had our jackets off within perhaps 30 minutes. It was absolutely beautiful weather to do a 5 mile walk. And the bridge itself is truly a work of art.

Everyone lives in interesting places though some I think don’t really believe they do. I sometimes wish I lived on the East Coast where they have all those glorious old buildings with a ton of history attached to them. But I don’t. I live on the West Coast where things are a bit newer. But not far from town there will be old barns and vineyards or ranches. And in town there are new buildings and new buildings built to look old. I looked at these photos this morning and realize that I really need to get out and take some more to really show the different styles and colors we have here. But until then, well this is what I have.
There are some things I just love to photograph. Fences is (or is it are?) just one of them. Perhaps one reason is that I am trying to recreate a photo my father did many years ago of a fence. Actually I think that I have surpassed his fence photo by now but probably only because I have the advantage of digital while he only had the film option. No matter…I still love old fences.
Ok…I know it is not Friday but I thought that since I am not going to be here that I would post my Friday photos early. I’m really trying to get into the swing of this and get some sort continuity going. Who knows if that is good or not but we shall eventually figure it all out.
Anyway one of my first photo posts was about the local high school. There are many murals and such there and I had a wonderful time one Saturday wandering around the school. I must say there are some pretty creative kids that go there. Hope you enjoy!
I thought about this quite a bit…first do I really want to do a photo challenge with so many wonderful photographers out there. And I realized that, yes, I do want to do it. I am doing it for me and really no one else. I think it will help me in my photography…or at least I hope it will. We shall see.
The other thing I thought about was what is growth. I had some interesting ideas and in some ways wish I had gone with one of the other ideas. But I didn’t. Our small town has a community garden which I had never before been to. I stopped by there the other day with my camera and the gate was open. What a treasure trove it was. So these photos relating to growth were from that community garden.
I am not sure, however, how many photos are allowed in these challenges – or is there a limit? I suppose I shall find out. My goal is to enter all the upcoming photo challenges. Whether I make that goal or not we can only wait and see.
