Transforming problem houses into Dream Homes

Random Photo #10: San Francisco Skyline

2021 Random Photo Series

As a way of rounding out the year, I have decided to share 3 random photos from my phone each week, along with a discussion about why I took the picture. This might give you a sense of how I think and who I am.

I really like where I live. The San Francisco Bay Area is beautiful. As a resident of the East Bay, I enjoy the view of the City that you can get from this side of the Bay.

This photo was taken from the Emeryville Marina Park on a hazy day in October. I regularly take the puppy out to this park for a walk during the week. I took this picture through the screen of trees between the parking lot and the park.

I like the way that the screen of trees almost mimics the vertical nature of the buildings in San Francisco on the other side of the bay. The silhouetted trees in the foreground and the fact that from this perspective you can hardly see the Bay, makes this a more two dimensional image with a more graphic quality that I like.

The strong verticals are also balanced by the green of the mound the trees are on, and the silver slash of the Bay.

Not every picture I take is as good as this one. But every picture is an attempt to capture something.
