    Let's get the last week of the year under way. While there were many things to photograph at Rockefeller Plaza, the flags catching the breeze captured my attention. What got yours? Happy New Year everyone.

  15. Mark, is that Pigeon Point?
     
  16. Hi Laura, I had to look that up. Yes, I believe it is Pigeon's Pont. We were driving back to San Francisco from Santa Cruz. We had spent the last few days driving the California coastline from Big Sur to San Francisco.

  19. Mark,
    That's a nice stretch of road. I did a lot of hitchiking on it. Fortunately the scenery is so good that it's not a problem to get stuck for a few hours in any location. My grandfather photographed the same lighthouse back around 1960, maybe earlier. I still have his home processed prints. I was visiting family in the Bay Area about 10 years ago and we went out to visit the location. It's familiar to me for many reasons. I hope you had a great time. Looks like you had some fine weather.

    Laura,
    Yes it is and very beautiful scenery. I also noticed there is no cell phone service up around Big Sur for many miles in both directions, I checked on two different carriers. It is a remote area. Being over the Holiday week, there were a lot of folks up there but spread out over 60 miles or so.
    Seemed to notice the crowds at the places to eat. The weather on Thursday got up into the 70's in the sun and was great. It does tend to dip down a bit at night. But those dips are a far cry from the 17 degrees last week in Bucks County., PA.
    It would be interesting to see how much has changed in over 50 years. Maybe try to shoot the same shots today with as close a lens as you could to what your grandfather used in the 60's. Then view the shots side by side comparing then and now, the cars for sure. Perhaps some of the landscape. What does the ocean do to the coast in 50 years, what changed?
    I am having a blast with so many photo opportunities.
