Default Yesterday's Golden Hour Walk

When I think of the golden hour, I think of the quality of the light. Here are some of the other pictures I took yesterday morning before work. I thought they all showed the golden hour light.

Old brick (well, old by California standards):



More old brick:



Empty Stadium:



A Well-known place for basketball fans (and notice the oof chain link fence in the foreground - it's undergoing a major renovation and expansion project):



Tree:



Going to Work:



They were climbing up to the top of a very tall construction crane. I'm glad I work in an office at ground level - that's some "commute"!

your composition skills are exceptional, Harriet esp in 1 and 3. Number one is definitely one for the win

Nice examples, Harriet.
I really like that old oak tree!

Gorgeous photos Harriet. That golden light of dawn is lovely. I especially like #2. We're having unusually cool weather right now, and for the past several days, the morning golden hour has been very foggy and misty. But I'm sure temps will rebound before too long. (Then, in another six or eight weeks, they'll really plummet, and before we know it, we'll be into genuine cold weather!)

Thanks for the compliments! I had a great time looking for shots.

I've been walking past that old tree for the past month and admiring the light and shapes. Of course the marine layer came back for a week after this topic was announced, so I had to wait for both the weather and had to figure out how I was going to get everything to come together. These pictures were taken with the K7 and either the 77 Ltd or the DA 35 macro (I didn't have my camera case and could only carry 2 small lenses).

I posted another one of the stadium for the challenge. If it hadn't been for this month's challenge, I might have continued to walk past that tree, think that I should take a picture of it and continue going without bothering.

I'm just surprised that no one made any comments about Pauley Pavilion.

I confess -- before tonight, I knew nothing about Edwin pauley. After reading your remark about no one commenting, I looked him up. Wow. What a story. I'm sure he's regarded as a hero to some, a scoundrel to others.

haven't had many golden hours lately, work and bad weather making it very hard.

Great shots Harriet, first and second are my fav's.

I wasn't thinking of Pauley, the man; rather Pauley, the building. And mostly thinking about the various men who have worked and played there, especially John Wooden, who passed away in June. But perhaps a man who was legendary throughout the late '60s and 70's wouldn't necessarily be remembered 30 years later. He was a fixture at Pauley, attending many of the home games throughout the decades after he retired from coaching.

Oh, sorry..... I do remember the passing of John Wooten a few months ago. I was not aware of his asociation with the Pauley Pavilion. I'm learning all sorts of new things from this thread!
