I got to Treasure Island around 4:30 on New Years Eve, which meant I had about seven and a half hours to kill before the fireworks show started. Got some nice shots of the sunset and then I got this shot about a half hour after sunset.
As I was taking this 2 minute exposure I heard a camera in burst mode rapid firing behind me. When he was done he came up to me and introduced himself as the photographer for the San Francisco Chronicle, and wanted to know if he could use the pictures he took of me in the paper. I said yes and he took down my name.
So my 'Claim to Fame' for 2012 is my name printed in the SF Chronicle and a couple of blurry shots of my backside!!......
