The day started at about 5am.¬† With coffee in hand, my good friend and I bundled up (jackets, scarves, gloves and flashlights) and headed on down toward¬†Sausalito/San Francisco, specifically the¬†Marin Headlands, in search of abandoned World War II bunkers.¬† OMG SO EXCITING!!!!¬† I am obsessed with ‚Äúurban exploration‚ÄĚ.¬† For me, it is the funnest part of being a photographer.¬† I have always loved abandoned anything, be it buildings, shacks, or any other type of structure.¬† I love old decaying buildings that are falling apart.¬† To me it‚Äôs beautiful.¬† I see beauty in things others might see as filth.
Ok, back to today’s adventure… My goal was to reach the headlands in time to see the sun rising with the beauty of the Golden Gate Bridge as the backdrop.  Our plan went off without a hitch and we reached the headlands in plenty of time for me to capture this:

Scoutin’ Locations (Fort Baker)

Do you think someone will accuse me of “child labor” because I force my¬†babies to¬†be my fake models¬†when I’m scouting out Photography locations?¬† LOL…

Little Man and Courtney were testing out a pose for me.¬†A¬†‘dip’¬†in front of the Golden Gate Bridge, for a photoshoot I have in 2 weeks.

They’re such good sports¬† :}

Courtney tried to return the gesture Рit did not end so gracefully!  HA!!!
