Candle Light Tour of Fort Point

15 January 2007

Talk about being reinvigorated! For several years now I have photographed The Presidio of San Francisco, and like all long projects it’s hard sometimes to see your subject afresh. Well I can’t tell you how great it felt working fast in low light during Saturday Night’s Candle Light Tour of Fort Point here in the park. We have had a real cold snap here in the city and Saturday was one of the coldest (37 degrees when I got out of the car). Still, myself and about 20 others bundled up and braved the weather to tour the Fort at night. It was – a beautiful night! Photographing while exploring the fort’s dark brick corridors with punched tin lanterns was like pure candy – I must admit I am a bit smitten and can’t wait to get back out there!
