Funny video of how a seagull stole my GoPro, flew over the water in front of Golden Gate Bridge and how the camera incredibly managed to survive, recording everything! A flying video from a seagull’s mouth! A San Francisco sunset I will hardly forget..
I saw this on http://www.facebook.com/crockpotguys
This is the sunset last Friday night, while I waited for the blue moon to show itself… These colors are what came from the camera with no significant editing. It’s oversaturated somewhat, but pretty close to what I was seeing. I set my camera’s white balance to “incandescent bulb” to get these colors; on automatic or “sunlight”, it was making everything golden – pretty, but nowhere near the real colors.
I got up to the roof of the rectory early to wait for the sunset/moonrise, and the seagulls, which usually occupy our small roof, were NOT amused that I was usurping their prized vantage point for observing the world.
This first shot is actually from Thursday evening, several hours before the precise full moon:
On Friday night, the “blue moon” put on a real show, playing hide-and-seek through the clouds:
Wow, Rubber Duck got caught in a wicked back eddy and now she is practically off the map. There be dragons down here on this island.
She hopes to be back on the right island of Cape Ann by Mug Up this Sunday. RD really enjoyed reading the art*throb article especially the part about her love life. Wow, they almost called Rubber Duck the mascot of GMG. (Of course she knows that isn’t true; she would never usurp Homie’s rightful place.)
Four more days of humidity and hush puppies.
Hi guys! I thought I would share a nice picture of Homie who made an appearance for my nephew, Tommy Bean, visting from Ohio. He’s great with the camera and I took him on a small photo tour. Of course, there is never enough time to see it all! One stop we made was at Raffe’s Chasm. (thanks to Donna and GMG for introducing that beautiful spot!). Anyways, here is the shot. Hope everyone is enjoying the summer.

I see you looking at me looking at you. Don’t think I don’t.
You’re not from around here are you? (Weird looking Homies no?)
But the locals are very friendly.
Yes, beverage please.
Rubber Duck is very sad (can’t you tell by that face) that she won’t make it back to the Sunday morning GMG Mug-Up so she is drowning her sorrows. Mostly with drinks with little umbrellas.
