Hello San Francisco!!!...Oakland, Here we Come!

I captured this view of San Francisco as we were flying from Seattle. We were heading to Oakland Airport, (out of the picture to your left) on the eastern shore of the bay.

On the shore To the right If you look carefully, you can see the the little white building with the pointed top.....well, that is the famous San Francisco Ferry Building!....Many decades ago, it was the tallest building around, Now It is literally dwarfed by the other buildings that rest behind it!

Every workday morning our son David takes a ferry from Vallejo (behind you) to his work location which is in one of those tall buildings that rest behind the Ferry Building.

With the distant clouds and light rain, this was a pretty fun scene to enjoy.
I hope you like it ;-)

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
