Curvature of Light

This was made the other night on Treasure Island at Building One when, as always, I had a good time shooting with my partner in crim--uh, my partner in night photography, MattyD90.

As photographers, we had everything, short of the kitchen sink, thrown at us, unfortunately. There was gale-force wind-driven rain, colored lights that went off and on, law enforcement encounters, technical difficulties, fatigue, and a very, very "sketchy" shot-blocker that was on a good enough drug to actually ask us, in all seriousness, whether or not this was where the Forty-Niners played. After a few more suspicious moves, we were well enough convinced that he was texting his cronies for back-up. The security guard, who was leaving, got in his car so fast it made my head spin. Haha. We followed suit!

Anyway, the color of the the light reminded me of a somewhat-redder version of the "Giant's Orange" from when the Giants baseball team was headed for the World Series. Where other local landmarks do this type of special lighting, too, I have yet to see a more vivid or saturated display then here at Building One. That can be a problem for the photographer, but always nice for just looking. They sure made them nice in 1939!

I appreciate your support! Thanks for coming by!


I want to thank Yahoo Sports for featuring my shot on the 49ers page. I used to catch my shots here when the Giants were on their way to the World Series. Kinda fun.
