To be honest, this post is rush job, just to quickly get something on the blog before the month runs out. I haven't missed a month in four years, and would horribly hate to break that streak.
(I'm being over-dramatic on purpose.)
Anyway, things have been crazy-busy here with a project that was supposed to have ended over a month ago, and that will perhaps actually end this week. Hooray.
Thus, I have a backlog of blog topics. Here's one:
Locals in Wellfleet, Mass., a small town on Cape Cod, thought their harbor's lighthouse was dismantled and destroyed over 80 years ago. Turns out they — and everyone else in the world who cares about these things — were wrong. The lighthouse had actually been moved to San Francisco, where it still stands, shining its light over another ocean.
The now-named Point Montara Light Station is in a great spot for photography, which makes me wonder why I didn't stop to shoot it on my 2000 trip to the Pacific Coast Highway. I think I was in a rush to get into the area of Ano Nuevo State Preserve for an early-morning seal shoot the next day. Oh, well; next time.
