Friday, 7-16-10 – People on the Waterfront

16 Jul

Today was the first hot day we’ve had in a long time in downtown San Diego. It was after 5:00 p.m. when I was finally able to get out to take pictures. So I walked down to the waterfront to take advantage of the cool breeze coming off the bay and look for picture ideas.

I sat on a low ledge, facing the water. I used my wide angle lens, manually preset the exposure for the sky, and set the focus at infinity. Then I sat and waited for people to come by. I wanted to capture one of the ubiquitous pedicabs that ply the area. But I also decided to include these other three in this posting because of the range of people and situations they captured.
