The Story

I was racing toward the Golden Gate Bridge to meet it while the clouds were still pink on my bike and I decided to take the Bay Trail instead of Mason Street. I decided to pause at the beginning of the Bay Trail just to take a few shots when I noticed this runner starting to meditate. I saw that he was sitting in a good spot for the bridge to be in the background so I snapped this. To me, this shot depicts what San Francisco is for me. A beautiful, calming place for meditation and relaxation.
