The many moods of SF. 🙂 Reply ↓ Gunta August 20, 2019 • 9:41 pm I had somehow forgotten some of the incredible lighting that lights up the City and it’s landmarks so well. How lovely to see you capture them with panache! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 22, 2019 • 11:12 am Thanks so much, Gunta. The dynamic light at the ends of the day is wonderful. Glad you like this shot. 🙂 Reply ↓ pattimoed August 19, 2019 • 1:48 pm Beautiful shot, Jane. Lovely in b & w. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 22, 2019 • 11:11 am Thanks so much, Patti. I loved it in color and suddenly realized it would work well in monochrome. Glad you agree. 🙂 Reply ↓ bluebrightly August 19, 2019 • 9:24 am Beautiful tones, Jane! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 22, 2019 • 11:10 am Thank you, Lynn. I was pleased that this worked well in monochrome. 🙂 Reply ↓ lexklein August 18, 2019 • 7:51 pm I agree with all the other posters! A beautiful, soft shot with great textures and light. (I enjoyed your profile on Nicole’s blog!) Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 22, 2019 • 11:10 am Thanks so much, Lex! This was a memorable moment in SF. I’m glad you enjoyed the interview, too, and appreciate your supportive comment. 🙂 Reply ↓ plaidcamper August 18, 2019 • 3:51 pm Wonderful, and quite Mediterranean as a poster above said. A lovely shot – cities can be beautiful (and you and your camera love SF) Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 22, 2019 • 11:09 am Thank you, Adam. Ferlinghetti compared the light to Greece in one of his poems. I agree. Happy you enjoyed this image. 🙂 Reply ↓ Allan G. Smorra August 18, 2019 • 2:15 pm A beautiful rendition of available light, Jane. Much like a sunbeam across an unmade bed. Ω Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 22, 2019 • 11:07 am What a lovely analogy, Allan. The SF light was astounding that evening. Thanks so much. 🙂 Reply ↓ Allan G. Smorra August 22, 2019 • 12:38 pm You are firing on all cylinders, Jane. Keep up the good work. Ω Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 22, 2019 • 6:00 pm And we know that’s not always so easy! Usually, I’m happy to be firing on one! 😀 Reply ↓ Eliza Waters August 18, 2019 • 12:09 pm Nice view in B&W, Jane. Love the boxiness of the buildings with the organic element of trees below the Tower. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 22, 2019 • 11:07 am Thank you, Eliza, and those are great observations. This was a magical moment for me. 🙂 Reply ↓ Steve Gingold August 18, 2019 • 11:53 am Cool. The density of the structures all condensed like that reminds me of pictures I’ve seen of houses all crammed together on a cliff overhanging the Mediterranean. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 22, 2019 • 11:06 am Hi Steve- That’s a great comparison. The houses on the hills are one of my favorite things about SF. Glad you enjoyed this one- thank you! Reply ↓ de Wets Wild August 18, 2019 • 7:47 am Wow, Jane, the image seems almost “historic” – I almost expect an old TWA Lockheed Constellation coming in low over the hill… Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 22, 2019 • 11:05 am That’s a great thought, Dries! The B&W version does evoke old times. So glad you like this one. Reply ↓ rabirius August 18, 2019 • 6:27 am Excellent photo, Jane! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 22, 2019 • 11:04 am Thanks so much, Rabirius! 🙂 Reply ↓ Steve Schwartzman August 18, 2019 • 5:44 am Here’s what Wikipedia has to say about the name: “Originally named Loma Alta (“High Hill”) by the Spaniards, the hill was then familiarly known as Goat Hill by the early San Franciscans and became the neighborhood of choice for many Irish immigrants. From 1825 through 1847, the area between Sansome and Battery, Broadway and Vallejo streets was used as a burial ground for foreign non-Catholic seamen. “The hill owes its name to a semaphore, a windmill-like structure erected in September 1849, for the purpose of signaling to the rest of the city the nature of the ships entering the Golden Gate. Atop the newly built house, the marine telegraph consisted of a pole with two raisable arms that could form various configurations, each corresponding to a specific meaning: steamer, sailing boat, etc. The information was used by observers operating for financiers, merchants, wholesalers and speculators. Knowing the nature of the cargo carried by the ship they could predict the upcoming (generally lower) local prices for those goods and commodities carried. Those who did not have advance information on the cargo might pay a too-high price from a merchant unloading his stock of a commodity—a price that was about to drop. On October 18, 1850, the ship Oregon signaled to the hill as it was entering the Golden Gate the news of California’s recently acquired statehood.” Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 22, 2019 • 11:03 am Thanks, Steve. I didn’t know it was called Goat Hill at one time. Glad you enjoyed this post. Reply ↓ YellowCable August 18, 2019 • 4:14 am Very nice shade of light at different parts of the city. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 22, 2019 • 11:02 am Thank you, YC. It was one of those magical evenings. Glad you like it. Reply ↓ paula graham August 18, 2019 • 2:56 am A beauty…you found a perfect spot…..of course. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 22, 2019 • 9:15 am Thank you, Paula. The view from SF Art Institute which ensured I had camera in hand. 🙂 Glad you enjoyed this one. It’s a favorite moment. Reply ↓ Michael Scandling August 17, 2019 • 11:39 pm Mmmmmmoody creamy sky and soft play of light and shadow. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 22, 2019 • 9:13 am Thanks, Michael. I love your description. 🙂 Glad you enjoyed this one. Reply ↓ Michael Scandling August 22, 2019 • 10:17 am 😉 Reply ↓ Miriam August 17, 2019 • 9:49 pm What a stunning and moody panoramic shot.
