l I was fly­ing back home to the States from Asia, and the plane went over the south­ern part of the San Fran­cisco Bay just around sunset. The land­scape be­low me im­me­di­ately caught my eye and I re­alised that it would make a re­ally fun ab­stract. Once back on the ground, I booked a he­li­copter tour and ended up spend­ing 45 min­utes fly­ing over some salt ponds – out of the way of the path of the large air­lin­ers – shoot­ing all the dif­fer­ent colours and tex­tures.
