Framed Views

Little set shot through windows while I was in San Diego. These were the views I saw everyday as I would show up for work at the hotel. Enjoy.

Sailing Days

I snuck out of work early one day and walked along the bay and took this shot. Nice cinematic crop and I was very good to go with it.

Sense of Distance

I posted this before and I didn’t realize it until I finished the edits and did the export into PhotoShop that it gently reminded me I already went through the edits.  The thing is, I wasn’t happy with the first edit I did but posted it anyways.  I went way too much on the gradient and it was way too blue.  This time I let the natural colors take over and if I did anything I lowered the blue in the photo.  This was shot shortly after the golden hour so the light was behind me which is why the pier was harsh but the rest was still so blue.  So this time I bumped some other colors and really made an effort to show the boats in the distance along with the bridge with the dawn just being finished with its colors.  It gives it a sense of distance and hence its name.

I promise some new stuff tomorrow but I was really pleased with how it came out this time versus before I just wanted to re-share.

Dalena

Saw the ship from the walk along the harbor.  It was the only one with activity on it.  This marina versus all the others is where the working fishing vessels dock at.  You can also catch a glimpse of the USS Enterprise Midway in the background.

Around the Taco Stand

The taco stand or food stand is ubiquitous around Tijuana and they are cheap and delicious to eat at.  When I first went to Tijuana tacos were $1 but now they are up to $1.20 because of the economy and I can live with that.  They are made fresh right in front of you and have lots of choices for toppings.  It’s interesting watching who comes around the stands and at night you get a bit more flavor for lack of better terms but everyone is there for one thing, tacos!

Fishing on the Bay

I started out as a guy that could not take a landscape to save my life to getting decent at them.  I found the trick of just waving the camera in the general direction and pressing the shutter button works really well.  This is the public fishing pier on the San Diego water front and the Vincent Thomas Bridge in the background.  I also like how I got the two guys fishing in the boat as well.  You can barely see some of the US Navy ships in the background as well.

Penn Hotel

I saw this and knew I was going to make it black and white to give it the classic feel.  No idea how it really came out because editing on a 15″ screen is tough but it looks good to me.  It feels like it was shot back in the era of film.

Classic Theater

Just like how the tower of the theater goes into the sky.
