Another semester at Merced College with a great instructor means I'm knee deep in another photography project. It could have been easy ... I voted for easy with "Weeds Made Beautiful" ... but unfortunately my "great" instructor said "What??? You know I don't like flowers!!" (???????) Okay, so since I'm not too creative, I reverted to the list I have been keeping just in case. A Day in the Life of Alcatraz it is!! I scheduled a model, bought the tickets, packed all the gear I thought I would need, and the day before the model cancelled. I can still go and spend a lot more money to end up with no useable pictures, or I can lose the cost of the tickets. I didn't go.
Two weeks later, we're off to San Francisco via truck, bart and taxi to Wharf 33 where you take the boat to the island. The funny thing is that the island is free ... it's the ferry you have to pay for. I have my list of shots I want to try and tick off the first two quite handily.
