Thanks to Covid-19, I haven’t been able to get out much and add to my time-lapse library. So, I stayed home and pointed my camera at the sky. Rather than present them straight, I added some simple blending effects and created this film, a memento of sheltering in place. Find beauty where you can.
November 26, 2019: in the Marin Headlands (north of San Francisco), I got to hear this Coyote Symphony.
I got to fly in and out of Detroit this month, and was digging the “artistic display of light and sound” in the underground Light Tunnel which connects Concourse B&C with Concourse A.
May 23, 2019: shot in time-lapse mode on my iPhone, crossing into Marin County, after sunset, on the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge. The bridge opened in 1956, but has always been overshadowed by its more famous neighbors: the Bay Bridge and the Golden Gate Bridge.
PHOTO ESSAY !! Hill 88, located in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, in Marin County just north of San Francisco, an old abandoned military radar monitoring base, stunning views on a stunning day: March 3rd, 2018.
Here’s a pretty little scene filmed with my iPhone. It looks weird because I applied the “Warp Stabilizer VFX” in After Effects. It’s desperately trying to smooth out the flowery plant which is wildly blowing around in the wind. This is what happens. It’s only 5 seconds of video, but I looped it forwards-backwards. Click here for a trippy version.

The Golden Gate National Recreation Area includes many scenic areas which used to be controlled by the military. From Fort Cronkhite, located in Marin County, you can hike to the summit of Hill 88. This hike will reward you with spectacular views in all directions, and a healthy workout (5-6 miles, 1000′ elevation gain). The abandoned, dilapidated & graffitied structures which reside at summit were once part of a radar station for the former Nike Missile Base which is located nearby.
The surf is up by Fort Point. A great day to be a tourist in San Francisco.
Got pounded by a storm yesterday, this was the view of San Francisco the next morning.
