Cali - Golden Gate Bridge

Photograph taken in San Francisco, California

As sunset edged closer I found myself in a prime location at the Baker Beach.

My wife headed out of the rental car and began to look for me up by the battery. When she called my cell and I explained where I was she opted not to scramble down the cliffs and instead headed back to the car to watch the sunset and wait for me.

The next thing I new I received another call from my wife informing that somebody had broken into our rental! The sun had not yet set, but this shoot was over. I quickly packed up my gear and scrambled back up the cliffs.

Luckily, we had checked into our hotel prior to going on this shoot and most of our belongings were not in the car. Somebody had smashed the passenger window of the car, but luckily none of our belongings were stolen. My guess is that the criminal was spooked before they could steal anything.

The police arrived and we filed a police report. We had a dinner reservation at a nice restaurant that we had to cancel and instead we drove the car back to the airport to get a new rental. Luckily the rental company was great and we were on our way fairly quickly. Our hotel was great and they made us a reservation at another great restaurant and even had them give us complimentary dessert as a consolation for all the excitement.

Stay tuned for photography from our stay in San Francisco.
