Sleepless in San Francisco

Actually quite contrary, I wanted to get more sleep, but how often do I have a chance to visit San Francisco and go see sunrise at the Fisherman’s Warf? This was the first photo I took that day. Didn’t plan to take it at all, but as we were walking towards the Pier 39 I saw this trolley coming towards us, it took me couple seconds to put camera down on the ground, level it, frame it and push the trigger. No time for a second shot. The driver gave me a high five (over the air, Smile) as he was passing us. It was a good start for a good day in a cool city.

    Well composed low light photography. Thanks for sharing Nonoy Manga

  3. Nice one. My first shots are always crap. Usually my best shot is just as I’m leaving. They have to find you rather than you look for them, don’t you think?

    • Dmitrii says:

      yes, most of the time they find you, of course you have to be out there for that to happen

      • Absolutely. You’ve got to put the work in, even when you’re tired and frustrated and can’t find anything. And then pop! the universe opens up and hands you something on a plate. That’s the magic. And like anything, the harder you work at it the more magic is made available to you. Wonderful!
