i left my heart in san francisco | horizon s3 pro | panoramic camera


Watching the America's Cup Finals over the past few weeks has brought back many memories. For me, San Francisco is a real special place, which I visited many times over the course of my life.

Spending many "summer" days racing on the bay I know exactly how that water feels when it pours down the inside of your jacket while the wind whistles through the rigging at 26 knots. I can taste and feel the salt in my hair as I try to make myself look presentable for the yacht club party after a day of trying not to fall off the bow of a sail boat. I wish so much I could have been there, on the water, to watch Team USA perform a miracle.

I have also been fortunate enough to intimately explore the city accompanied by my russian made, Horizon S3 pro panoramic camera. Throughout 2007 I took advantage of my surplus wages, cheap flights, long weekends, and adventurous spirit to explore the emerging brew pub scene around the city, with camera in tow. I visited places like The Beach Chalet, 21st Amendment, Magnolia, and Thirsty Bear for quenching masterpieces. These places were not my photographic focus, but rather my vehicle, taking me across the city by foot and public transportation to new and exciting views.

Only an handful of my images reside on my computer, leaving the rest locked in silver halide crystals to be re-discoverd sometime in the future.
