San Francisco, CA In Smoke (Part 2)

If you have followed up with the news lately, you would know that several massive fires burned up in the San Francisco North Bay a while back. The smoke from the fires practically blanketed the San Francisco Bay Area in smoke. On October 12th, I went to San Francisco, CA to photograph the smoke. That was one of the smokiest days. The smoke created some strange lighting which I documented through my camera. The photos will be split into 3 parts. San Francisco, CA will take up 2 parts, and Treasure Island (sunset photos) will take up the last part. The photos shot in San Francisco, CA might look like they were shot during sunset, but they were not. The reason they look like that is because the smoke filters the light from the sun similar to how the atmosphere filters the light from the sun during sunset.

This is part 2. The photos are all from San Francisco, CA. I have some photos from Pier 7, Ferry Plaza, and San Francisco Ferry Building.

I know these photos are a little bit late. I get seasonal allergies around this time of year, and the smoke drifting in the air made my coughing a lot worse than normal. Not to mention, the mega rain storms earlier this year meant more plants. Now that the plants are drying out and the leaves are falling, there are much more allergens in the air. It has made me very sick, so I haven't been able to work on these photos that fast.
