Bay Bridge and shadows

I missed posting for weeks, but I am back.  June has been busy with visits from relatives and a weekend trip.  All good things!

view from our hotel room
My husband and I haven't taken a get-away weekend in years.  My sister took care of my cat while we headed up to San Francisco last weekend.  I loved our hotel room which was near the water and had a beautiful view of the bay bridge.

San Francisco Bay Bridge
pier with view of the bay bridge
On Sunday morning we got our coffee and took a walk down the pier across from our hotel.   The metal seats swivel for a 360 view.  Two fisherman were at the end of the pier with their rods set up.   We spent the day walking for almost 6 hours through the city.  I already want to go back!

The Bay Bridge is quite immense as it flows across the choppy bay. The shadows weave wonderfully through the upper and lower decks. and the railings on the pier has a web of shadows, too. The brilliance of sea, sun and structure is wonderful!

This is a fabulous shot...I love the sun hitting the water just as much as the shadows.

bird watching and staying home for the summer

Usually summer means several bicycle-camping trips, but with COVID19 still around, we are staying home. In the meantime, I have been pretty productive with my 100 Self Portraits project.

summer bicycle camping

View this post on Instagram Took the weekend off and did some bicycle-camping. . . #bicycle #camping #whidbeyisland #bicycletravel #bicycletrip #bicycletouring A post shared by GalleryJuana (@galleryjuana) on Aug 18, 2019 at 6:18pm PDT Above is the view from our camping trip in August.  Unfortunately, I twisted my ankle pretty badly on a morning hike, so most of this trip was spent in the tent.  Fortunately, the view above our tent was wonderful and I enjoyed just literally doing nothing.  Isn't that the meaning of taking a vacation?  The ankle was workable just in time for the bicycle ride home.  Yay:) View this post on Instagram This is from a June Nicole-camping trip at Fort Ebey State park.

visiting the Victorian Radicals exhibition at the Seattle Art Museum

Last Friday, we took a day trip to Seattle.  The main focus of the trip for me was to tour the Victorian Radicals exhibition at the Seattle Art Museum. As usual, we got to Seattle on public transportation: bus, ferry, and train We started off the day with a cup of coffee at a cafe on the 40th floor. From there, I headed over to the Seattle Art Museum for the Victorian Radicals exhibition. I really enjoyed this show.   I took photos of some of my favorites: La Donna della Finestra, 1881 by Dante Gabriel Rossetti Rossetti produced three variations on this composition. The one above, the Birmingham version, was begun the year before he died and thus left incomplete. Musica by Kate Elizabeth Bunce ca. 1895-97, oil on canvas Musica by Kate Elizabeth Bunce ca. 1895-97, oil on canvas quoted from the exhibition card: “Kate Elizabeth Bunce was an English painter and poet associated with the Arts and Crafts movement in Birmingham. “ Proserpine, 1
