A couple of weekends in “The City”

Palace Of Fine Arts San Francisco

I’ve spent a couple of late evenings in San Francisco over the past couple of weekends snapping a few shots of the local scenery.

I snapped quite a few images of the Palace of Fine Arts last weekend with a variety of gear.

These wide angle versions used the Sony Alpha A99 and either the Zeiss 24-70 or Rokinon 14mm with a long exposure.

This one however used the Minolta 80-200 APO G.  The only problem is that moon moves too fast for the long exposure that is needed to get the tower lit up.

Actually my first shot of the evening this one was actually taken with the Sony A6000 and Zeiss Touit 32mm

Using the Sony A6000 and my Grandpas old 28mm Canon FD lens.

I’ve shot this view before but it seemed like a good safe bet to start this weekend off since it isn’t a huge tourist spot nor is it something you need a secret password to shoot from.

I will skip the stories of where we tried to shoot and which security guards kindly escorted us out of the building.

So our final stop of the night was a breezy and rainy twin peaks.  I used the Sony Alpha A6000 for all three shots of the weekend but this one happened to use the Lensbaby 5.8mm Fisheye.
