Plum Assignment

Being a photographer is often regarded as a dream job.  I when I tell people what I do for a living a common response is “you are so lucky”.  Little do they know that the reality of being a working photographer is anything but glamorous.  However, we do have our moments and that is what makes it a “dream job”.  Just last week I found myself perched atop the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium looking out over a scene that did not resemble the San Francisco City Hall that I have come to know and love over the past 15 years. The magnificent dome of City Hall was awash in orange light, thousands of people roamed the streets, mingling with jugglers, stilt walkers and marching bands.  A giant ferris wheel framed the scene at the north end of Polk St. and music blasted from speakers perched on the steps of City Hall.  This moment was the culmination of a weeklong assignment for the San Francisco Travel Association covering Pow Wow, an international event to promote the United States and San Francisco to the world.  For more images and information visit www.scottchernis.com
