Ahhhhhh… Indian Summer, here at last. And with a full moon to boot!
On Sunday night Bernalwood’s Cub Reporter and I headed up Folsom Street to savor the evening — and the view — from high atop Bernal Hill. As we sat on the warm dirt watching the twinkle of the lights, the Cub Reporter declared the shimmering skyline “the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.” She’s a San Francisco kid, so that’s high praise.
Then, when we looked east to admire the giant moon, she noticed something strange…
There was bizarre vessel tied up at one of the piers on the waterfront. “It’s a ghost ship!” the Cub Reporter said.
Let’s zoom and enhance for a closer look:
Later research revealed that the ship was not, in fact, an oceangoing emissary from the afterlife, but rather a South Korean warship in town to ferry a delegation of diplomats to Our Faire City. Almost as good, I guess.
The Cub Reporter had insisted upon bringing her spiffy new LED flashlight on our nighttime micro-hike, so we decided to have some fun with it. With the camera set to take long-exposure photos, I urged her to wave her arm with the light turned on. This was the result:
“THAT’S AWESOME!” she declared after seeing the result in the camera’s view screen. “Let’s do more!!!”
So we did…
It was a free-form spectacle of creativity, but by morning, her proto-Pollock light paintings were gone without a trace. Luckily, we got a photo of the culprit at the scene of the crime:
