Seeing a location on the internet constantly makes me wonder what makes it so great. I had seen this location on Instagram for the longest time, which is known for having a giant cross at the top of a set of stairs. After we had shot sunset a while back, going here was an added bonus, and it was all out of a desire to hit up one more spot, as a result of having amazing luck with the Karl the Fog. When I heard that we were heading to this spot ( I forgot the name) I thought I wanted the shot of the cross like everyone else, but one particular feature that I think every artist has ingrained into them is that they want to show something that's typical in a new light. Personally, that's how I am -- I want to show something that has yet to be seen, even if the there are millions of pictures like it on the web. When we first got to the place it looked disappointing, we had just missed the cloud rolling over, and it didn't look like there was much hope for anything else; nonetheless, we climbed to go and see the cross at the end. During that time my friends Binh forgot something in the car and got lost on the way back, since there's a split in the road, and while waiting there for him to find us, the universe did it's thing. A patch of fog rolled over creating this amazing feeling of loneliness between this small section of land and San Francisco, making it feel like an island -- light beams pouring through the fog and trees, like sweet honey from a bee hive. I set up my camera took the shots, while trying to soak it in, and I found that during the foggiest times, when all seems lost, light is allowed to shine its brightest to remind us that there is always hope. We continued our trip and the shots came on coming, until we reached the top, and the patch of fog finally rolled over, reminding me that I wasn't on a small island, but the beautiful city of San Francisco. As we made our way home, from the city that never disappoints, I remember I forgot to get the shot of the cross, but it was okay because I had given my own perspective to the place that had been shot over a million times.
