California Trip, 2014: Walking to the Golden Gate

These photos are from my long walk out to the Golden Gate Bridge. I started at the Palace of Fine Arts and walked along the shore all the way out to the spot under the bridge where Kim Novak jumped into the water in “Vertigo.” Some photos looking back toward the city will give you an idea of the distance I walked.

I’ve been falling behind on my travel writing lately; I still have yet to write about my summer trip to Europe, so it will be quite a while before I get around to posting the journal from my most recent trip to California. In the meantime, here are some horizontal and vertical panoramas I shot in San Francisco. You can click on any image to view a larger size.

Near the Golden Gate. I was surprised at how roughly the waves crashed into the shore.

The Palace of Fine Arts, where I began my walk, is barely visible on the far right of the screen.
This is actually an HDR photo, not a panorama, but I decided to include it here.

And I’ll leave you with a wider shot of the city at night.
