One of my aerial shots of San francisco made it into the final 200 photos for the 2012 World Open of Photography.
I took this shot on a crystal clear morning over the Sunset district of San Francisco. Despite the hopeful name, this is a neighborhood that is usually covered in fog. So when I saw the opportunity to shoot these long straight streets, I grabbed it. I really love that red siding on the house in the middle. My eye is drawn directly there. Then I start seeing all of the other houses around it.
It’s a great feeling to be selected for the final round, and to see some excellent photography from the other finalists.
