Fancy Bay Bridge Lights

The city of San Francisco recently commissioned lights on the Bay Bridge, designed by Leo Villareal.  According to their fact sheet Mr. Villareal is "a pioneer in LED lights and computer-driven imagery."   You have probably figured out that I have a great love of night photography, so I had to get out to take some shots.  The problem with night photography is that it isn't the safest activity for a single female, so I paid for a class so that I'd have people around me.

I think I got some nice images, but I recently invested in a remote, so now I want to go back and take some longer shutter speed shots.  My camera maxes out at 30 sec. without the remote.  Let me know if you are interested in hanging out near the bridge for like an hour after dark!

We started out in the daylight since the class was 6-9 p.m. and the sun wasn't setting until around 8 p.m.
