Golden flight
San Francisco, California

Nikon D200, Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G VR
Aperture (raw fine tuning, straighten, exposure, levels, highlights & shadows)
1/90sec @ f/22, iso 125, 18mm (27mm)


Bicycling a little around my new home town.

Now that I’m actually getting a handle of my new job, I thought it was time to venture outdoors. I hopped on my bicycle and started off in a random direction.

The first thing I did was get my tire caught in the MUNI rail and do a faceplant right in front of everyone at Fisherman’s Wharf.

Oh well, let’s see how close I can get to Golden Gate Bridge.

My camera isn’t in good shape but having the 18-200mm gives you a chance to take shots like this. Sure, it’s right into the sun, but at this focal length, I’m glad I caught enough of the detail of the seagull. Besides, Golden Gate bridge is very recognizeable. 🙂

(Yeah, at 18mm, I was right next to the bird. :-))

On the way back, I flatted.

I don’t have my computer set up so this is the RAW image with a little futzing around with Aperture. I’ll probably replace it later. (At least fix the flare and the dust bunnies)
