Watching sunset from the Berkeley Hills – October 20, 2006
Been a while since we’ve had a slideshow post so here’s one of a sunset from the evening of October 20, 2006. In the near distance you can see the city of Albany and Golden Gate Fields. Further out and across the bay I believe the actual Golden Gate Bridge is on the left, followed by Sausalito, Tiburon, and the rest of the North Bay. Angel Island is there as well but I can’t quite make it out.
Besides late night, dusk is my other favorite part of the day. There’s a point when I’m looking at a sunset where time seems to stop and I lose myself in the moment. A few minutes later, I snap out of the trance and the night begins, bringing with it its own set of bustling activities.

View of HK Island from Star Ferry, Wan Chai to TST – May 2, 2015
Been awhile since I’ve posted a non-food-related slideshow pic; tonight’s is one taken from the Star Ferry on its way to TST. From left to right you can see the Convention Centre, the Bank of China Tower, Cheung Kong Centre, and the rest of the Central waterfront skyscrapers. As I’ve mentioned many times before, it’s incredible how small Hong Kong is.
Mount Fuji – March 7, 2005
Doing a lot of work at my computer today, so naturally lots of photos showing up in the slideshow. This third one from today is of Mount Fuji, taken by JC over ten years ago. Wow.
Hong Kong sunset – May 14, 2015
I look at this photo and wonder how many more of these I’ll see…
Good Night, SF – November 25, 2005
Good night, SF. See you tomorrow.
Pollution Sunset – April 5, 2014
From one celestial body to another, for today’s slideshow post we have a photo of the setting sun, taken on a ferry from Cheung Chau to Hong Kong. I initially thought that the mountains were part of Lantau Island, but on closer inspection they may be from Hei Ling Chau.
Only in smoggy Hong Kong could you get a sunset like this; the particulates in the air create a natural filter for the sun’s light.
Sunset over the Sunset District – November 29, 2011
My desktop slideshow must currently be biased to the photos I took on November 29, 2011. Here is another from that day, taken atop of Twin Peaks in San Francisco. It really was a foggy day that day, wasn’t it?
San Francisco Bay and Skyline – November 25, 2005
The unmistakable skyline of San Francisco, with the Bay Bridge attached. It never gets old.
