I had difficulty finding a place to begin my work on an ambitious personal project in San Francisco. This was the first day of a week dedicated to the project after a brief visit on another job in January. It just seemed difficult to find a place to start. I had grabbed a cup of coffee and was asking a person who was walking by if he had any thoughts about the best place to capture the transamerica pyramid. We spoke for a while and then I found out that his name is Stoney as well. I thought “Wow!, what are the odds of this occuring? Crazy.” He invited me to photograph the city from the roof where he lives. When I arrived I was pretty excited as it is a spectacular view. I had to focus on the capture during sunset and I spoke to his neighbors after I finished. I will have to grab a cup of coffee with the other Stoney when I return to one of my favorite cities.
