I love this city

Thank god they finally turned off those annoying holiday lights so that I could get this shot that I’ve been waiting for. OK, the truth is that I was originally hoping to shoot this scene with the holiday lights still on and an alternate composition to the wildly popular beneath-the-bridge view. As it turns out, I was at least a day late, and with the new bridge toll increase, I’m definitely more than a dollar short now. The holiday lights scene will just have to wait until next year. But with or without holiday lights, I still love this city, and I feel very fortunate to live so close to such a wonderful place.
