Aerial view of a former commercial salt pond evaporation site on San Francisco Bay.

It's been another three years since I've shot aerials at this fantastic location. There has not been much rain in the interim, so there is much more crystalized salt than the last time I was here.

It's always a treat to shoot here, and this place absolutely blew the mind of my fellow aerial photographer who is visiting from The British Isles.

Men dyeing animal skins at the Chouwara Tannery in Fez, Morocco. We were told that this process hasn't changed much in centuries. After half an hour of observing the scene, we found this quite plausible.
