At the end of June we made a trip up to San Francisco to be a vendor at the inaugural Unique SF show at the Concourse Exhibition Center. Since it was all work, I didn’t get out much to do a whole lot of photography, but here are a few of the shots I got in (all done on an old crappy iPhone 3GS).
We stayed across the bay in Oakland, in a semi-industrial/semi-touristy area called Jack London Square, about 3 blocks from the marina/harbor. So when I woke up super early I was able to go out and explore. There was some cool neon at the predawn hour and also I stumbled across a wholesale produce market – old incandescent bulbs in old structures make cool shots.
At the end of the first day of the show I met up with my friends & fellow vendors, LemonBird, at our usual and we had a nice meal. I think the LemonBirds are recognized regulars at Il Cane Rosso now, from all the events they do in S.F. From there I hopped the ferry back to Jack London and my hotel. It’s next to impossible to get a decent HDR shot on a moving boat, but even so some of these had a cool look so I’m putting them up, double-exposure and all.
On Sunday morning there is a farmers market at Jack London and there was an awesome mobile wood fired oven there. What a great idea, they have a hydraulic lift that they use to move the oven from their pickup into place. Too bad we had to get back up to the event before they would be ready to fire pizzas.
Till the next adventure…
