This spread is one of the first in my latest art journal so not really recent. (I think from last winter?) Somehow I didn’t feel like sharing this one… I guess because it’s not really layered, compared to the other spreads – it’s one of my most simple ones to date! But a few friends who took a peek in my art journal said it’s actually kinda cool, it reminded them of a video game. So I was like…ok fine, I’ll publish it.

When tourists visit San Francisco’s Ferry Building and wander around the
Financial District, do they know that part of the City was once underwater? Amidst the towers was once a busy
harbor. During the Gold Rush, crews that
ran off to the Sierra Nevada abandoned their ships. Those ships sank into the mudflats as wharves
and docks grew around them. Eventually
the harbor was filled in and the coastline expanded out into the bay. Imagine Justin Herman Plaza was once a tidal
flat filling with seawater twice a day.
Travel Photos are about both the past and the present, this one might
also be about the future as sea levels rise.
The new series of Time Travel Photos will be presented in a new exhibit at San Francisco’s Glama-Rama Salon and Gallery. The show runs from October 11 to November 27,
2016 with an opening
reception on the evening of Saturday, October 15 at 7:30 pm.
