Yesterday we walked up to the racecourse inside San Francisco Bay, sat down and watched the races. The starting line was right in front of us. so were the boats. A large screen on our right projected graphics of what was happening, explained the rules and presented closeups of the men sailing.

After a few years of putting to rest my Canon DSLR camera ( it was too heavy),  I brought it out –  couldn’t remember where the card slot was!

Out came my   telephoto lens. This lens went to South Africa with me. I call it my giraffe lens.

Oh my, I forgot what beautiful photographs these nice cameras make.

This is just straight out of the camera, jpg version not raw version. Changing the exposure just wasn’t right for me. This was the day, not digital, but soft. This was nature’s filter, the fog. Well, the whites could be a teenie bit whiter… never satisfied. Any suggestions?
