Day Negative Two

Prev Next

Again, as my 365 project approaches, here is my 2nd photo before the project officially begins on January first. This was shot in downtown San Francisco near Market and Powell as I waited for Erin and Stephanie to finish shopping in a nearby department store. There wasn't much outside aside from the thousands of people (which I mostly wanted to avoid). Instead there was this lonely red bicycle which begged to be shot. I only took one photo of it, then casually walked away — surprisingly it turned out to be the best of the night.

Oh, and one more thing, Happy Bokeh Wednesday Eve! (yes, it's still Tuesday in California)

Horizon616, Jenny [TIME for BABY], and 188 other people added this photo to their favorites.

    Great night image of an orange :-) bike. Very nice color balance and bokeh to. May I ask if you used a tripod?

    I love your stream, the colours on this shot are just amazing. Do you process shots much in photoshop to get this level of saturation?

    Seen in your Project 365 set. (?)

    the same of my gear. The most thing is that you must control focus!
