Things I’ve Seen: San Francisco


“I’ve been wandering early and late 

From New York City to the Golden Gate,

And it don’t look like I’ll ever stop my wandering.”

  2. It is not just that you are a brilliant photographer, which you clearly are, it is also that you SEE much more than most people do.

    • Cindy, This made my day. That’s what I hope when I click the shutter, that, as Berenice Abbott says, “that it will help people to see”. Thank you so much and I appreciate you following my work.

  12. Love the Golden Gate Bridge! Reminds me of my college days up north :)like that orange glow you got going on and the peers on piers is fantastic shot! I l feel like I wanna surf looking at that pic ha! But that quote you got at the end, that one one is SO GOOD! I was high-fiving the air on that one 🙂

    • Hi Richie, Depends on the image. In this post, many were with my Fuji X-T2 and the Fuji 50mm f/2 Prime. For more info click on my Camera Gear page in the menu. Thanks for stopping by.

      • I fell in to photography a few months ago and found finding my first camera a minefield. The choices available is overwhelming!

        I ended up buying a Sony A6600 and have falling in love with photography. I also find it perfect for mental health.

  20. You certainly have the ability to notice, Jane. 🙂 “Rooftop Windows” made me think of those old photos of people wearing glasses at a 3-D movies.

  21. I left my heart in San Francisco…. 💕💕💕 but we got to see the grandbabies after two solid years. It was a very special treat! Your impressions of the city by the bay are a close second! 😊

  30. More excellent photos! I love that Golden Gate Reflection is instantly recognisable for what it is, despite the distortions of the water 🙂 And I’m also drawn to the B&W shot with the surfers and bridge. Not to mention the wonderful James Taylor quote!

    • Thanks so much, Sarah. 😊 I love the vibrant reflections from the bridge- she does provide endless possibilities. And the surfers were out in full force which was fun. So glad you enjoyed these and that you came away humming JT. 💕

  34. A stunning and poignant look at San Francisco, Jane, and so very much appreciated. Your eye and photographic skills are a pure pleasure to behold. I enjoyed every one of these photos, some for the uniqueness, and all for the composition. I really liked the GGB reflection (2) and the street lights with the GGB (3). Your Presidio Red was also fun, because that color is so prevalent in the Presidio area. Also enjoyed the quotes. My favorite photo, that knock-your-socks-off masterpiece, was the first one of the Peers and Pier. I hope you are celebrating your mastery today, Jane, because I am.

    • Oh boy, this was a pleasure to read, Jet. Places you know well seen in those split second moments. There’s always a little luck involved. Happy that Peer hit you– it was a very happy moment to see and capture. Thank you for your thoughtful response. 💕
