Upright Grand

Upright Grand - Hunters Point - 2013

Here’s another view of that decaying piano outside of the Submarine Cafeteria at San Francisco’s Hunters Point Naval Shipyard. It’s stuck in a corner around the back of the building – looks like it’s been there for 50 years!

This image was taken with a Nikon D600 and post-processed in Photoshop CS6. It’s got a subtle “warm black” toning created with an action developed by Doug Kaye with thanks to Ming Thein.

Submarine Cafeteria

Submarine Cafeteria - Hunters Point - 2013

While Doug Kaye and I were out exploring Hunters Point in San Francisco this morning, one of the buildings we came across – which was also open as part of this weekend’s Open Studios – was this one – the Submarine Cafeteria.

Shot with Nikon D600, post-processed in Photoshop CS6 with Nik’s Color Efex Pro 2 (Tonal Contrast filter).

Airstreamers in the Rear Window

Airstreamers - Hunters Point - 2013

While exploring a bit at the old Hunters Point Naval Shipyard in San Francisco, I came across this wonderful old Airstream trailer parked near one of the Open Studio buildings. It’s been crunched a bit – but otherwise seemed to be in great shape.

Some of the windows had been taped over – but the back window had this wonderful image of a couple taped over it. Seems like we caught them as we were peeking through – don’t you think?

I shot this with a Nikon D600 and post-processed it in Photoshop CS6 and Nik’s Silver Efex Pro 2. I just love the look!

Working a Subject

Working the Subject - Hunters Point - 2013

Earlier today, Doug Kaye and I headed to Open Studios at Hunters Point in San Francisco.

We had a great time talking with one of my favorite local visual artists – Pep Ventosa – at his studio in Building 101. I love Pep’s work – with multiple exposures and blending in Photoshop. Beautiful work.

Afterwards, we headed over to another area of Hunters Point for some photography…

This is a shot of +Doug Kaye working one of the more interesting subjects we came across – a sculpture of a woman seated – made of nails. Doug’s shooting with his Sony NEX-7.

Shot with my Nikon D600 and post-processed in Photoshop CS6.
