St. Francis of Assisi Shrine

Going over some old photos and retouching with new skills, I recently reprocessed St Francis church. I corrected the lens distortion and made the columns upright and did some dodging and burning. 

The corrected version - reprocessed in Pixelmator

49 Mile Scenic Drive - Photography Bucket List

Originally Published February 15, 2013

The 49 Mile Scenic Drive in San Francisco is covered with many popular points of interest for tourists and photographers alike. While I haven't done the drive, over time I have unknowingly stopped at a few choice spots. I intend for this post to be a living document: Updated continually as I photograph new locations around SF.
