San Francisco and Landscape Photography

It's almost cliche to take this photo, but it's unavoidable. The Golden Gate bridge from Hawk Hill. (Ricoh GR)

I’ve always lived in the city, shot in the city and vacationed in cities so the vast majority of my photography is of the urban environment. I am not trying to limit myself, I just shoot what’s around me. On a recent trip to San Francisco I had several opportunities to head north over the the Golden Gate bridge and take in some of the beautiful scenery around the Marin Headlands and Mt. Tam.

Most of those chances came from bike rides but a few of the following photos were taken while on a drive with my father. When I’m on the bike I’m not interested in dragging around a lot of gear so once again the tiny Ricoh GR has stepped up and hit another home run. Its 28mm fixed lens just happens to be about perfect for everything I wanted to shoot.
