David Mathre Photography

Welcome to my Images of the Day Photo blog. My goal is to post images from each day of the year going back to 2006 when I got my first DSLR camera. Images I post on Google+ are also forwarded to this Photo blog. I am a retired chemist that worked nearly thirty years in the Pharmaceutical industry. I took my first DSLR camera on a road trip across the United States, and became hooked, with my new passion becoming a photographer. I now spend all my time traveling and taking pictures. Since then I have visited over 50 countries, many on Semester at Sea voyages. My photographic interests include travel, the natural world, landscapes, and photographic techniques. I always want to learn something new and the only way to become better is to learn from mistakes.

First Day of Spring — San Francisco.

A couple of images while working in San Francisco. Although there was heavy rain last night and this morning, conditions cleared up later in the day. The site where I am working near the UCSF campus looks over a large construction site for a new Hospital. I need to work on the white balance since the image was taken through a window tinted green (auto white balace within the camera 6008 K) . The 2nd version has the white balance corrected (6514 K). Later on when I got to my hotel I saw this sailboat at anchor in Osyter Bay.
