I first met Bay Area night photographer Mike Marfell
at a Nocturnes
shoot at the Mare Island Naval Shipyard
organized by Tim Baskerville. Mike introduced himself to me, then promptly disappeared for the evening with another group of photographers. It turned out that we live fairly close to each other in the South Bay, so we've since shot together many times in the past year. Mike was originally turned on to night photography after seeing some of Troy Paiva's
night photography on the internet.
This shot was taken at Battery Mendell
in the Marin Headlands. In the distance is the Golden Gate Bridge and the northwest skyline of San Francisco.
