This evening really was a treat for me. First off, I finally had the opportunity to visit the Sutro Baths in San Francisco while playing tour guide to my good bud, Chris Lazzery. I was so surprised at the variety of landscape photography that this area has to offer – very cool stuff!

Secondly, while photographing along one of the concrete perimeters of the bath pools, I bumped into Tony Eckersley and the lovely Robyn Chau. They were on the adjacent beach, so I climbed down to enjoy photographing the sunset – which also was quite beautiful and even had a small complement of wispy clouds just above the horizon.

Thirdly, and finally, just as we were about to pack up and head back up for the evening, we noticed a small group of photographers further down on the beach practicing spinning wool. This is something that I’ve always wanted to photograph but never had the opportunity. So, we meandered on over to them and asked if it’d be ok to join them. Thankfully, the group was beyond accommodating and let us join in on the fun. Tony made a really good point that all of us seemed to walk away with unique enough compositions despite photographing the same subjects – that is something that I really do admire.

I ended up editing this photo first because I absolutely love the refection of the spinner and his crazy little streaks of burning wool. I’ve got a bunch more but will spread them out over the next few weeks/months.
