This aerial view will give you some perspective on what I see out my window every day. I live just below the "y" in Berkeley. I see everything on the map except on cloudy days Hawaii is often obscured. I searched the web for a shot of my complete view but couldn't find one with such a wide angle. This represents about 50% of what lies outside my windows. Of course it helps that the entire 25 foot run of West facing wall in my apartment is all glass.

The Winter Solstice is upon us, the end of our solar year. I have decided to take this blog in a different direction for awhile. For how long will depend on for what period of time you remain interested in sharing my visual perspective.
As I have mentioned often in the past, I live with a magnificent view of the San Francisco Bay. I have put up several shots over the years using my tiny pocket camera, but last month I put out a call to my Bay area friends for the loan of a good camera that might capture more of what I experience every day. My digital visual prayer was answered.
So for the near future, this will become a visual blog with a link to a quality photography website if you want to see the bigger view of what I have snapped. Call it my hobby for 2014 or just a way to extend the life of this blog that has been around for eight years now.
I begin today with the iconic Golden Gate Bridge from my daily perspective ten miles away with my newly acquired telephoto capacity.
