Lightroom Monochrome Photography Nik Software Photography San Francisco/California

Looking Back…

This is one of those weekends that provokes a look back. As I wrote last year, these two days in March will never be quite the same.

I spent some time tonight looking back at my photo archive and ended up settling on a few shots taken in 2008 – from a trip to Sausalito and Fort Baker. These were both taken on the same day in March 2008 with my since retired Canon EOS 40D DSLR (a really great camera, IMHO!) – and I processed them for the first time tonight. Most of the processing was done in Nik’s Silver Efex Pro 2 and Lightroom 4.

Up top is a shot taken at Fort Baker of a woman fishing out in the Bay. I chose a traditional monochrome view for this shot.

Below is a San Francisco bay and skyline shot taken from Sausalito. This one, while also monochrome, has different toning applied – appropriate to the sky/water elements in this image.

I love both of these images – they bring back lots of memories of that day! Hope you like them! Click on either image to see a larger version.
