I moved on from Yosemite to meet up with three more members of the Lady Bikers of California in San Francisco. As it was during the working week only three of the ladies could make the shoot. As it was it turned out to be a fantastic day. It meant I could concentrate on the ladies individually and we didn’t have to spend time setting up the same sort of shots and keep swapping bikes around.
We started off at the tram terminus where Jeanne knew one of the guys who operated the trams and we were able to get right next to the turntable. The ladies were pure ‘Bad Ass’, when they weren’t trying to suppress the giggles that is 😄😄.
Tee suggested we go to a jetty that has Alcatraz in the background as it could look awesome. All was going well as I set up the shots I wanted to take and then there was a problem……a police car arrived with flashing lights and siren!!! A rather stern looking lady police officer approached us and I tried to plead ignorance but Tee had already said that she know what we were doing was illegal (Doh!). I was instructed to put my camera down and not to dare take any more shots as she went to speak to Michelle and Jeanne. So we left but I had already got some of the shots I wanted.
We then headed off to Fort Point which is right under the Golden Gate Bridge. The scene was amazing…….the might of the Golden Gate Bridge….the roaring surf and in my mind the slightly mad surfers. The weather wasn’t brilliant and the light was rather dull to say the least but somehow it all added to the atmosphere.
