A few weeks ago, three of my family members swam from Alcatraz Island to Fisherman's Wharf. I went on the boat to cheer them on. It was a Saturday morning and I was cold. Under the circumstances, I kept my thoughts about the temperature to myself. Anyway, while walking down to the boat dock, I turned around and saw this amazing view of the Ghirardelli sign. I didn't have my paints with me, but I did have my camera. Something I've learned over the years is to always carry my camera with me. You never know when you are going to come across a great composition.
