I walked to the Embarcadero Center to see An Inconvenient Truth. Highly highly recommended. As in, go see this film. The nation's top climate scientists said Gore was accurate and one said he was being optimistic (link). I was dismayed to see much of Manhattan and my beloved SoMa underwater. I'm revisiting my CalTrain-and-bike to work idea.
Afterwards I was doubly glad I had walked; the half moon and clouds gave enough backlight for a nice nighttime photo walk. I'd love to be able to take nighttime pictures like these; it's partially talent/practice and partially gear. But I've decided to put off procuring a new camera until after I've made loft ness feel like home.
Still, (brainstorm:) it would be fun to get a hotel room in a highrise, get a pretty accomplice in vintage lingerie to lounge by an open window, framed by the billowing white drapes, lit by neon, and photograph via telephoto lens from the street and other highrises while communicating via walkie talkie. Someday. Maybe.
