Dusk, Grant Avenue

We walked through Chinatown one night, just at dusk. Of course, walking is generally acknowledged as the only way to be able to see Chinatown, and going at dusk was a photographic gold mine, with only a few shops open and not many people around to clutter things up.

Wait until you see what I post tomorrow!

Fenced mountains


This? Oh, this is just a little view from the Point Reyes peninsula toward Tomales Bay and the rest of California, all held at bay by a fence.

Barn Light

The afternoon sun pushes through various openings in the old barn at Pierce Point Ranch.

The past, reflected in the past

The old buildings at the Pierce Point Ranch are kept up, and nicely painted white, which I hope is a nod to making them even more photogenic. (But, since the place is listed with the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the white’s probably historic. And photogenic – no reason it can’t be both, right?)

If you get yourself lined up just right you can see a little piece of the past reflected in the bunkhouse window.

Spring, just arriving

Going for a drive on the Point Reyes peninsula was suggested to me by blogger Michael Scandling; if you’re not familiar with his blog, you need to stop reading this right now and head over for a visit.

Welcome back! He does good work, right?

Anyway, at the very north end of the peninsula – literally at the end of the road – is the Pierce Point Ranch; the ranch itself is no longer operating but the buildings are there and visitors can walk around them. Oh, and take photos.
