Night over San Francisco

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 13 September 2013 in Architecture and Portfolio.

Another edition of "What's old is new again!" (Tag: woina) A nighttime shot of the Golden Gate Bridge captured on April 15, 2008 in San Francisco, California. There are some people who say it's good to see how far you have come along since the early days of Aminus3 when my quality was far below par.

Here was the original photo that I posted. AACCKK!!

I'll be away for a while. See you all on Monday, October 14th!

Canon PowerShot A630 6/1 second F/3.5 13 mm

Hmm. Interesting that you link to the original to show us your growth. I like what you do, and how you present, and what you share in your blog, Steven.

AM3 is great great "Blog" (Web-log) in showing how things have changed, some of the shots I started with , I now see as horrendous!

13 Sep 2013 9:39pm

@CElliottUK: I so agree! That's what got me started with this series that I do. I can't believe that I had some of those photos as part of my "portfolio." I quickly changed that! :-)
