A San Francisco Scene from Telegraph Hill

Pacemaker Crown Graphic large format view camera with Kodak Portra 400 negative film and 150mm f5.6 Schneider Kreuznach Symmar-S lens.


As I reached this location I saw the light playing across these buildings through a hole in the overcast cloud cover. By the time I got the tripod up it had disappeared. I waited at this location for nearly an hour waiting for the sun to creep through the clouds again. When it finally did it was too bright. I took this just as the light was fading behind clouds again to take the edge off the brightness. The weather changed completely a few minutes later with a completely different low bank of cloud rolling in with a wet cold wind. Shooting time was over.
