The Rincon Hill Towers shortly after sundown in San Francisco. I'll confess to not liking this new tower. It is at the base of The Bay Bridge and seems completely out-of-scale to the beautiful art-deco span. My office is about 2 blocks from here and this light just drew me down the street with camera in hand.
I am pushing the limits of shooting hand-held here. Some fellow citizen broke into my car this week - liberating both of my tripods and my monopod to whatever ends might serve their needs. You all know that I advocate the use of a tripod whenever possible. I consider the tripod as my sidekick on a shoot - and plan to replace it today.

Update - My 5 year-old $320. tripod today set me back $600. Oh, my - yikes. I believe I am developing a new investment strategy. Tripods. Sure beats the stock market over the same period. The bottom line for now is that tripod and I are back in business together. Hooray!
