I’m not sure this qualifies as street photography, because I was standing in the entrance of a building in San Francisco (with my photography buddy, Carol) shooting through the gorgeous lobby and focusing on the Bay Bridge through the windows at the end. It was Carol’s idea to wait for someone in red to come by to make the shot- and she did! I am happy to say that there was no cropping or cloning- just a little work on exposure and then a black and white conversion. The garbage cans (always a no-no) remain for journalistic integrity!
But where is the girl in the red shirt? You have to look at the color version!
The beautiful and ornate Southern Pacific Building (completed in 1916) was right across from our hotel at the corner of Market and Embarcadero. This was taken through the window in Carol’s room.
This reflections in this skyscraper seemed to create a column of Japanese Kanji running down the side of the building- fascinating!
Since we moved to Arizona, I’ve wanted to visit Tucson’s famous Barrio Viejo, the historic district of quaint and VIBRANT old adobe buildings. We managed set aside a morning out of our anniversary trip last week to stroll through the area and take photos- MANY photos. You will be seeing many more photos like the ones in this diptych in future posts!
I still have photos I haven’t posted from Santa Fe! Here are two Lensbaby shots taken during the golden hour of this magnificent building by the square.
