    I've been enjoying the whole trip journal, but I want to give you a special shout out for your dune shots. Coolness.

    Wonderful photos
    I'm enjoying my armchair traveler's view of the west thru the eyes of a British traveler!

    I must say those dune shots are out of this world! Really great!

    One of these days, I gotta get up that way. Nice shooting and great sense of lines and lighting. thumb.gif

    Lovely pan. Especially with that car behind it. And the colors are great, too.

    I love this shot, Gubbs.

    When they are on the beach, all together, with the exception of the Harry seal, I am afraid they are dead.

    Memories of other photos in the news, I guess. So, very glad to see this guy up and about.

    I like the shot where you are hurrying to make the gate closing. And the ones of San Fran. I really like the shot of Mrs Gibbs, lol3.gif , at the Grand Hole.
    I have never been there, always amazes me. Such an "American" place.

    Nice shooting, looks like a great trip.

    Wasn't that kind of dangerous for the Mrs G, standing at an angle like that?

    Never having been there, I don't really know, but I was never told that the Hole and horizon slanted like that, there.

    Those handhelds of Vegas are great. But that last dune shot is
    fantastic. Nice rich color thumb.gif

    Thanks Thomas, I want to get that printed, there's a couple of girls sitting on the rock that help to scale the shot which you just can't see on screen

    The light was a little flat so I ended up converting these to b/w, seemed to suit the sombre SF expressions too :D

    This one really captures the feel of SF to me when I was visiting my brother several years ago. Excellent.

    Glad I found this thread. Great shots all around! Really makes me want to go cross country again.

    You know, it's a real shame you guys ran into so much inclement weather. That's not typical, especially not of California in May.

    Last day in SF started with a fantastic breakfast, my kids would love to start the day with these :D
    24406092-L.jpg

    and a walk up to Coit Tower

    24406093-L.jpg

    Great views from the top, but alas another flat day :cry

    24406094-L.jpg

    Caught a cab back to the hotel

    24406097-L.jpg

    and had a drink in the Pied Piper Bar before heading out for the evening, the painting is worth around $2,500,000

    Mrs G wanted to take me out for the evening and had booked a table at a restaurant that a work colleague had suggested that she take me to. I thought it a little strange as she wouldn't tell me any thing about the place ne_nau.gif

    When we arrived I noticed half of the U shaped bar was set up as dancefloor with poles :uhoh.
    WTG, my wife had bought me to a lap dancing bar :D I couldn't quite believe it!!

    Anyway the show started after dinner, here are a couple of pix shot at iso 3200 handheld....
