Just to the left of this frame lies AT&T park where on this particular night the San Francisco Giants (baseball team) hunted for a World Series Game 4 victory. The entire city skyline turned itself orange for them, from the lights on top of buildings, to an orange Beacon and orange glow of Coit Tower. The Giants responded with an 11-4 victory! Even the moon made an appearance, as it set right behind the Transamerica Building.
It was super fun to meet Matt Walker for the first time, after so many conversations on Flickr, Facebook and text. Also great to shoot with Rebecca and Wilson Ng, then meet up with Jeff and Tung who were above us (and the Bay Bridge).

It feels good to be back home. Definitely still have on my mind though. Already planning future trips! But for now I am excited to relax for a day or two, backup drives and start digging through the massive amounts of content from the trip.
Willie, Alan, and I met on Treasure Island and were the first to arrive at this spot above the bridge. Several other photographers joined us. I staked out a spot that looked straight onto the bridge and waited. After taking a few photos with the traditional bridge line-up, I raced to where Willie and Alan were standing, slightly off center, to get a slightly less traditional view of the city and its Bay Bridge.
