Cityscape - August BJP


The fog shrouds San Francisco during the day and eve hours obscuring the views creating a mysterious edge. At a magic hour, the curtain of fog lifts to unveil a beautiful cityscape, sun, sky and Bay. The TransAmerica, Coit Tower, Bank of America buildings strut their stuff. The blue lapis poses as a fog beacon to warn others.
The fog begins to swirl in the afternoon hours and will soon hide the City again. The Tiny Tims used on the fringe are the fog droplets left behind on your skin and everywhere you touch.
My recent trip to San Francisco (my original home) was a memorable one.

Ahhhhhhhh...swirling fog over the city indeed, that's what it is! It's absolutely lovely and so creative. I didn't know about Tiny Tims, will now go and google them, they are incredible. I love this piece, very well done!

Having spent a lot of time in Santa Cruz with many memorable trips to SF, I know exactly what you are showing here so beautifully! This may be my favorite of your piece, but I'm not sure because they're all really fantastic. Showing characteristics of places is a wonderful idea!
