A Visit to the Presidio: Barnard Hall

I visited the Presdio of San Francisco again yesterday looking and spent some time looking for the bird I shot there a week ago. Well, I found a few there, but I’ll save that for another post depending on how those images turn out…

Yesterday, I revisited a spot from before and reshot it. The previous visit was a wet rainy day and gave off an entirely different feel. Yesterday, weather here in the Bay Area was truly fantastic and it was an awesome day to be out and about shooting in “The City.”

This shot is of Barnard Hall, reportedly named after an Army Chief Engineer, and is one of the restored buildings at the Presidio. I liked this lead in shot of the building framed by the trees and the sky and palm trees around it. I also liked the brick building on the right with the flag proudly flying in the breeze. I processed this image through the Topaz Tools in an effort to bring it out more. I initially “saw” it as a cream tone or sepia image and may process one of the images that way too.

  1. Glad you got to enjoy the sunshine. It’s interesting how the lighting can change the look of the same subject and area. Looks like an interesting place to explore.

    • Thanks Emily, yes it was a very good weekend to be out and about shooting here in the Bay Area. The light changes every day and all through the day. If it wasn’t so far away, I would be tempted to try to shoot it every day, or at least at different times throughout the day.
