Glory Over San Francisco: More Shots From Our Floating Photographer

Posted By on Mon, Feb 1, 2010 at 7:30 AM

If there's been any benefit to the recent spate of biblical-type rain, it's the amazing documentation of our photogenic city as it clouds up, rains, clears up, rinses and repeats. Our regular readers are familiar with the work of Gabor Gardonyi, a tugboat chef and ace photographer who's been generous enough to share with us his shots of raging San Francisco storms, dolphins, seals, and now -- glory.

There you go -- glory over San Francisco. Glory being, of course, a halo-like optical phenomenon accentuated by rain or mist (of which we have plenty).

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
