Katie and I went sailing on the Bay on Saturday. It was my first time on a sailboat, which is crazy considering Marina spent 20 years sailing (1974-1994) and my mom spent her early teenage years on a boat. The captain was on a tight schedule, so we went strait to Angel Island and back. It was beautiful and invigorating, but also really intense and difficult to photograph. There was so much light and reflection, a polarizing filter would have helped. I also got so much spray on my UV filter that after a while all of my photos were coming out hazy. The last image was taken sans filter. We found $20 discount tickets on Amazon, but I don't think the regular $45 tickets would have been worth it. But it was a great way for us to catch up now that we're both busy with work and school. This semester is going by fast (it's nice thinking in semesters again). The light is changing, and it's starting to feel like fall. It's almost October, and one of my best friends is getting married in ten days! I am so excited for them, and I'm excited to see everyone and be in Willits again. I love looking forward to things in the near future. It makes everything better.
