18th Annual Palo Alto Weekly Photo Contest
"Evening Fog Blanketing the City"
It was taken on a late afternoon in July 2008 from the 41st story of a hotel in the financial district of San Francisco, where I was staying with my youngest son, in town from Tokyo on business. The long corridor outside the room had a long window with a panorama view of the downtown area and the waterfront, including the landmark Transamerica Pyramid.
While admiring the view, I started taking photos. I then saw the evening fog come in, gradually blanketing the city below. I waited for just the right time when the setting sun revealed itself in the background. It was a breathtaking scene, made possible largely by my good fortune of being in the right place at the right time.
