It's interesting how even when that beacon atop the Transamerica Building is rendered so small that it still seems to catch your eye. Maybe because the eye is attracted to the highlights of an image first.

Anyway, this is an image made on a night out shooting with either my friend MattyD90 or Chip Shotz. I believe it was December 2010. I know: pretty bad. But, I am much better at documentation now, so please spare me the "disorganized" comments---even though I deserve it. It was actually other people on flickr here that prompted me to be more diligent with the what, when, where, how, and why. Well, maybe not the why. Haha.

Anyway, if I get email in a couple years asking me when a certain image was made at the present time, rest assured I will have the answer. Because there is no exif data with film photography (lets not talk about 135 P&S or APS), except for the very misleading scanner data, it's all up to you.

Still, it can be a little fun to figure out the date based on what building was there or not there when you zoom into the skyline, or whatever. Okay....maybe not that fun.

Thanks for having a look!
