Goodnight Giant

Ive always loved this location under the Bay Bridge the way that it captures the San Francisco skyline is hard to beat. The Embarcadero Center lights … the Beacon atop the Transamerica Building … Cost Tower … the bridge lights all make a pretty surreal scene.

Just to the left of this frame lies ATT 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).
