Unnatural High (Transamerica Pyramid Light Trails), San Francisco

So if you were driving up Columbus Avenue on the 24th of August, and swore you'd come back to kill the %$&!ing lunatic kneeling in the middle of the road with a DSLR and cable release, well.. . now you know who you're looking for.


Saw this shot during the day (some sunnier non-LX versions to follow), and returned in the early evening to get it. San Francisco's citizens are a good bunch; lots of interest and conversations with strangers as they stopped off at my tiny traffic island to see what I was up to.


The end result I was hoping for was a sort of "if they filmed 'Back to the Future' in SF" effect, and I think it gets there!


Some more ramblings below about how to/not to take a photo; if you have the patience to read on, thanks! Otherwise, have a fantastic weekend!
