I was playing with the “depth of field” the fast lens offers, so the subject swims in and out of focus. This emphasizes the depth of the subject. It’s a bit of a photographic cliche, but it’s amusing.
We went out walking at twilight on Saturday and Sunday. Saturday, we didn’t have anything particular in mind, but the light was interesting. On Sunday we deliberately went to see Chinatown, hoping for a good show as it’s close to the lunar new year.
Chinatown was decked out in lots of red lanterns. I used this as an excuse to use my “faster” lenses (the ones which are better with less light). Unfortunately, the red of the lanterns didn’t always show up in the pictures, looking more orange, or even yellow. All the lanterns are actually red if you go see them in person.
We had no plan for the weekend, but on Saturday decided the Bay Bridge was close by, so went down to the Embarcadero to take some pictures.
On Sunday, we discovered there was a bus directly to Lands End, the northwest corner of San Francisco, and you can get great views of the Golden Gate Bridge from there. As usual, when we’re in the City, it was brilliantly sunny. The locals says this is unusual weather.
We spent the weekend in San Francisco, mainly just because. We did some wandering around and I took a few pics.
