You might be saying to yourself, "Hey, Kyle. I want to see all of the pretty colors from those pretty lights reflecting on the pretty water." Trust me, it looks better in black and white.
Here's a pretty neat panorama of the bay at night. I was out there pretty late and it looked like there was a sizable group of fishers that were still hanging out on that pier doing their fishing with light up nets or something. It was actually pretty cool to see the light underwater. You might even be able to make them out in the panorama, but I had to compress it quite a bit so it would actually fit on the website, so the quality is somewhat low.
If you've been on the site lately, you'll hopefully have noticed the redesign. I've been putting a lot of effort into reorganizing everything and adding new images in addition to re-editing the old. I hope it has created a more structured and accessible experience for everybody. Today I added a new gallery, the adventure gallery, which includes the above panorama and all sorts of backpacking shenanigans.
There's also the new travel page, which contains all of the photos from my time in Europe, conveniently organized based on their location! You may have seen most of them before, but I've added several new photos that even I hadn't seen before, so please go through and check them out again if you haven't already! England is still a work in progress. There are so many photos to sort through.
Last but not least is the new projects page. I'm somewhat of a stranger to the concept of photographic projects, but I'm going to try to do them in some sort of effort to continue learning the art of photography.
Another shot from the trek to the Golden Gate bridge. There was this silly little barrier blocking the road into an otherwise accessible park, and yet this car started driving down the road just a moment after Shelby was on the other side. It made for a kind of neat picture though, so horray for that. But not horray for the shutdown. I really wanted to appreciate that park.
I went on a cold and lengthy journey across San Francisco last night to get underneath the Golden Gate bridge. I ended up getting some pretty cool pictures, but instead of posting those, I'll post this. Also, one of my nightmares was realized this morning. Because I got home at four, I naturally slept in for quite some time. Unfortunately, I had work a noon and ended up being twenty minutes late. It was terrifying for me, but nobody at work cared and I still got cookies.
Well, not anymore, but they were. The power went out on campus the other day and when they tried restoring the power, one of the generators blew up. Like actually blew up. There was a fireball and everything, and they evacuated the campus and declared a state of emergency. The state of emergency thing seemed a bit excessive. Anyhow, I decided after the campus had been evacuated that it would be a great time to go on campus and shoot some photos with no people around and no lights on. Of course, in my haste to grab my camera and get on campus before they had all the entrances covered, I forgot my tripod, so almost every picture turned out terrible. I got one okay picture, and here it is.
I've never actually done a real photo project before, so I figured I'd try one out. I don't really know if it'll be any good or not, but here is a sample of what I'm trying to do.
