The Low Score Task by Miss Caution

September 22nd, 2007 2:16 PM

INSTRUCTIONS: Take a picture of the Sutro Tower from your neck of the woods. Bonus points for inviting your neighbors along for a photo shoot. Bonus points for skilled/artsy/lucky photography.

I sat in front of my parents' bedroom window with a camera. After about twenty shots, I finally found the right angle. It was a foggy Saturday and I was hoping to get a clear view. But after looking at the pictures I found that the fog created a interesting effect on Sutro Tower, making it look like it's disappearing, and so I decided to keep them. Hopefully I'll be able to take contrasting pictures of Sutro Tower from my window on a sunny day.

I didn't notice until now that there was a shadow rising up from the sides in this photo.

An unzoomed picture, just to show how far Sutro Tower is from my window.

I agree that the fog adds artistic quality to the photo. It captures the fogginess and fickle weather of SF.

Those dark shadows that rise up from the sides of the first photograph are, in fact, the fingers of Evil that will soon envelop your precious Sutro Tower... just as soon as I get the Herø out of the way.

Oh Villian, You're so cute with your threats.
