I’ve been trying to get out and about with the camera lately. I’m also trying to include more people in my images, which is rather difficult for me personally.
For some reason I find it incredibly difficult to photograph on the streets. But I’ve been giving myself assignments to push my personal boundaries. In a sense, I’m training for my trip early in 2014 to China. This is a once in a lifetime trip for me and I want to come back with images I’m proud of once it’s completed. This is easier said than done.
This is an image from Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco. I watched the steam rising up on a brisk, but not cold, night and found it interesting. The gentleman behind the counter was jovially entertaining the tourists and I thought, what the heck, I should be able to make an image here with no issues so I started shooting away. I think it worked out for me on this image.
