May 8, 2015. Sutro Baths, San Francisco, California. My general plan in shooting Horizons is to have water and sky and nothing more. In this scene I wanted the texture and pattern of light on the water juxtaposed with the soft clouds. Period.
But without a crane I wasn’t going to get high enough to get the rock out of the frame and the light was changing rapidly and then this huge RORO (Roll On Roll Off automobile carrier) lumbered into the frame and by my mental calculus it was going to take approximately fifteen minutes short of forever to get out of the frame and by then the light would be gone forever. Bah!
Ahhhh, but Grasshopper, one must be open to all.
I had to admit that the relative scale of the ship and the rock and their relative positions made a mighty handsome image.
And I must further admit that I was a happy grasshopper.
