Here’s a different view of Sunset Cliffs, looking northward towards La Jolla. This was a plain image (nothing spectacular) until I converted it to black and white for the drama. I love how the sky came out and the texture in the surf.
What do you think? Should I post the color version here too?

I’m finally getting around to processing the several hundreds of images from my trip to San Francisco back in early June. During that business trip, a couple of friends and I took a day trip away from work and the City, venturing out onto Point Reyes and Tomalas Bay.
While we were shooting this old boat, we saw an old sea dog walking around with another person. We overheard bits of what he was talking about, and soon started asking questions. We learned that this boat was an old Navy “taxi” for taking sailors from the big Navy ships in to harbor for onshore adventures. The second tidbit was that after it was retired and the boat became somewhat a fishing boat, the entire second “level” was added to gain height needed for spotting fish.
Pretty cool little boat with a storied past!
