A Year of Sundays--Bay Bridge at Dusk

I was returning from the City last night right around dusk, so I decided to stop off on Treasure Island to see what the view would be. This is always a great spot to get a view of the San Francisco skyline and Bay Bridge and last night didn't disappoint. The sky was lovely shades of pink and blues.

A Year of Sundays--Mt. Tam Fog Series

There are three routes to go from the Mill Valley to Bolinas, where my Dad has a house. I drove out for the day last Sunday and decided to take the route up and over Mt. Tam. I saw some fog hovering over the mountain and know it can create beautiful atmosphere when rolling over the hills. This was definitely one of those moments, and I captured several images of the fog playing amongst the trees.

A Year of Sundays--The Difference Between 8 and 9

I had my three nieces over for a sleepover for the first time this past Saturday into Sunday. We had a great time, watching movies, eating mac-n-cheese, playing games, typical 8- and 9-year old activities. At the end of our time on Sunday, we spent a some time at one of their houses and with the heat, Makenna the 8-year old decided to swim in the cold water of the hot tub, but the 9-year olds Marin and Malia chose to just stick their toes in and read, and ignore the picture taking. Seems to sum up the difference between 8 and 9 pretty well.

A Year of Sundays--Ford Headquaters

This photo is from the Closing Ceremony of the Michigan 3-Day, which is the start of the 3-Day season. It has for many years been held in Dearborn at the Ford Headquarters. So, as I was walking around the site, I noticed this typical building with pretty reflecting colors. I like the contrast of the building with the sky, similar to the green grass (there was a lot of green in Michigan, I'm not used to that coming from California).



Check out Molly's view from Closing Ceremony and watch for Sarah's coming soon.

A Year of Sundays--Found on an Evening Walk

During an evening walk tonight, I captured this cool old Chevy truck. Everything about it is great, including the racks and storage boxes and the very well cared for grill in front. 


Molly and Sarah's photos coming soon.

A Year of Sundays--Giants Game

It doesn't get much better than this view for a Sunday outside activity, especially when the game completes an A's sweep.

A Year of Sundays--Glass Beach/Fort Bragg

I headed up to the Mendocino coast at the end of this past week for my cousins wedding. The area is beautiful with many amazing sites to capture. So, I have to admit this is a Sunday cheat, today's photos were taken on Saturday.

I took a little side trip to Glass Beach in Fort Bragg, where I captured some stunning photos of the beaches and I wanted to share them. So Molly and Sarah forgive me, but I'm going to break the rules this week, I hope you feel the photos are worth it.

My favorite photo and pick for "Sunday".
Some outtakes and additional favorites.

A Year of Sundays--Highway 5 Views

Last Sunday I spent a good portion of my day, along with a few other holiday travelers, driving up Highway 5 from Los Angeles. I stopped at a vista point along the way and took a few photos. I like the softness of the hills in this image.

A Year of Sundays--Golden Hour

I love the light of golden hour, and this image of the Aeolian Yacht Club displays so many different tones and light from the bridge behind the boats to the flashes of light on the masts.

A Year of Sundays--Father's Day

This past Sunday I returned home late due to a delayed return flight from Chicago. Due to very little sleep the night before, the only plans I had for the day were to take my Dad out for dinner for Father's Day. We had a nice dinner and then headed back to the San Francisco Zen Center where he lives. They main city center location is a beautiful building designed by Julia Morgan with a nice courtyard in the middle.

So, here's a photo of my Dad in the late evening light.

A Year of Sundays--Kiteboarding

Sunday looked like a perfect day for kiteboarding, a little bit of sun and a lot of wind, and this seems to be a popular thing in Alameda at the beach.

A Year of Sundays--Bolinas Walk

My Dad and I spent the night and day at his place in Bolinas, and this afternoon went for a short walk down to the beach and back through the neighborhood. Walking by the meadow I really liked these tall weeds/grass and this view with just the blue sky and fog out behind it. The weather was changing constantly with a little sprinkley mist, some fog and sun.



We saw a little variety of wildlife out there as well, a deer (very common all over Bolinas, including my Dad's backyard), a hawk and a crab in the Agate Beach tide pools.

A Year of Sundays--Nesting Egrets

Yesterday my mom showed me this corner in Oakland where she heard has a lot of snowy egrets and night herons nesting. We checked it out and at first glance you don't see them, you just hear them, very loudly. After searching the trees, we soon discovered several nests and birds protecting their nests. I went back today with a zoom lens and was able to capture a few images. I think I was being warned to move away and getting quite the stare down.
Here's an interesting article about protecting the birds and why they nest here: http://www.mercurynews.com/animal-life/ci_28176369/despite-dangers-downtown-oakland-still-home-nesting-birds.


A few outtakes...
