Day 45 More of San Francisco

The top photo is another photo of the Bay Bridge in San Francisco, shot at night, from way out on a dark, scary, pier, at Fisherman's Wharf. Both of these photos were shot in Auto mode, with my 18-135 mm lens, at 18mm, using the flash, 1 second exposure, f/3.5. I used a post for the bridge photo, which helped stabilize the camera. The bridge was at ISO 800.

The sculpture below was shot with the same settings, except ISO 400. Unfortunately, no post, so there's considerable blur in the photo, but I thought it was abstract and weird enough that a little blur wasn't going to totally do it in. I don't know much about this sculpture, other than that it was in some courtyard near where I exited the BART and was a bit lost as I looked for Fisherman's Wharf.

Neither of these photos were actually taken today. I'm back in Grand Forks, and it's pretty , um, white, outside right now.
