When the Sun Goes Down in Northern California
by Night Photography by Marla Showfer
When the sun goes down, the places we see everyday take on a different light. This could be the light of the full moon, the headlights of a car coming down a dark quite road, sodium vapor street lamps, reflections of light on water, or shadows on a sidewalk.
I spent many a late night wandering around after dark, with my camera chasing the moonlight. These are some of my favorites. This is a book of Night photography, taken in Northern California. Locations include the San Francisco Presidio, Nob Hill, Ft. Mason, Pacific Heights, Sausalito, Mill Valley, Pt. Reyes, San Rafael, Nicasio, Petaluma, Novato and points beyond.
I hope you enjoy them.
